Question

Urethane Finish


My second coat of Helmsman Spar urethane dries dull. I sanded it after setting overnight. It is a satin finish, but looks much duller than the first coat.

Urethane Finish


Did you stir the can frequently as you worked? There is a clouding agent in a satin finish--this tend to settle as you work---if not stirred regularly the clouding effect gets worse as the can gets used up.
