How much do I need to degloss?


I recently purchased a liquid deglosser and I don't know if it deglossed enough. Im painting a window sill and when the sun shines on it I can still see the shine. At night though, I shined a flashlight on it and I can see it.

I scratched the wood with my finger nail on the part i deglossed and tried it on the glossy part and it didnt work. Is that enough?

The deglosser probably won't leave the same finish as a sanded surface.
Just follow the directions and you should be good to go.

All the deglossers I am familiar with require coating within minutes of using the
deglosser

The deglossing effect only last for 15 minutes tops, and is meant to degloss enough only to apply a coating...so the new coating won't "slide off" the glossy surface

By the way, here is the deglosser I got. http://www.buyhardwaresupplies.com/?...Number=1259381

It says it permanently removes the gloss.

Not familiar with that specific product, but yes, that's a "liquid sander"

If you are looking to permanently de-gloss a surface for looks, I'd recommend applying a less shiny coating, rather than trying to affect the coating that's on there

That stuff is not meant to be left as is

I see
Well, as I mentioned, most of those I'm familiar with need to be used soon after application
Check the instructions on that stuff, and follow them

It does say it's water based?
That would be interesting if that's true, and it works well
Most of those products are pretty stinky (high VOCs)

Please let us know how it works

On the packaging it says its water-based and biodegradeable. Also, it doesn't smell that bad either, I covered my nose with my shirt anyways.

Wow...that's great
I won't use the other stuff w/o a full VOC respirator
I hope it works well as a deglosser/liquid sandpaper
It would be nice to have the option of a low-odor product
