painting/clear coat.


I will be painting a set of cornhole boards I have built. I have black and yellow paint I will be using, the black is satin but the yellow is gloss. it will get a semi gloss clear coat after the paint, so does it matter that the paint is glossy. will it effect the finished product or will it not be noticeable. thanks

this guy.

Use primer first then paint, not prime and paint in one.
Use enamel paint and no sealer will be needed.

I don't think you'll notice a difference in the gloss of the undercoats - but you may run into a bonding issue of the clear over gloss.

I kinda thought I would have a bonding issue but wasn't sure. the reason I want to clear coat is because I will be putting a decal on after paint and want to protect it. maybe I can scuff the gloss paint a little. or I suppose I could go get satin paint and not have to worry about it. thanks guys!

You hit it. Scuff sand the enamel w220 grit and it should take your clear coat just fine.....assuming material compatibility. Ron
