When choosing an applicator, the most important factor is selecting a high quality brush with tapered bristles that will enable you to “flow” the lacquer into the wood. Do not use a foam brush, since it will dissolve![/content_box][content_box icon=”check” icon_color=”#0831f9″ title=”Safety First!” titleBgColor=”rgba(255,191,0,1)” titleTextColor=”rgba(0,0,0,1)” bgColor=”rgba(255,191,0,1)” textColor=”rgba(0,0,0,1)” align=”right” width=”300px” height=”157px”]Safety first! Take a moment to read the instructions and always play it safe: wear protective gloves and safety glasses, and provide plenty of fresh air when working with products and while they are drying.                                          [/content_box][content_box icon=”check” icon_color=”#0831f9″ title=”Temperature Matters!” titleBgColor=”rgba(255,191,0,1)” titleTextColor=”rgba(0,0,0,1)” bgColor=”rgba(255,191,0,1)” textColor=”rgba(0,0,0,1)” align=”center” width=”300px” height=”177px”]Lacquers can sometimes blush, or get whitish and cloudy, when applied in cold or damp weather. The best choice is to apply the lacquer on a warmer day. If the lacquer has already blushed, try bringing the piece into a warmer space or applying another coat.
