Poly over white paint


Why did the poly turn my project yellow? What can I use to keep the white bright? Doing Kitchen cabinets in white and want to seal them. Help me.

The more information you give, the easier it will be to help you. What kind of paint? What kind of clear coat? What are the cabinets made out of? How did you prep them? How were they previously finished? A picture helps a lot too.

Oil based Poly over white paint - BIG NO NO. Will yellow as you just learned. If you use the right paint - no poly is needed. If you use the wrong paint - get the right paint or use a waterborne poly on top.

Exactly. Oil base poly is amber in color to begin with and will yellow, waterbase poly is more clear. If you use a quality enamel with a sheen to it from the start there is no need to poly it.
