I've been spraying water based finishes for years. I have great success with Mohawk fillers. Also their Ultra-Penetrating Stains are great.
For a finish, I use Crystalac; acrylic finishes. I can't say enough about these.
Becker Labs: 423-727-6425
although, I know someone who swears by Hydrocote:
Hood Finishing Products; 800-229-0934
(I like their Rubbing Lube for rubbing-out)
I still use lacquer on plates. When I was still spraying lac. finishes, I found Sherwin Williams Vinyl Sealer. A high solid, quick build material. But now, I mix gold powder with the Vinyl Sealer and spray a clear gloss acrylic topcoat. The only reason for a lacquer thinner based sealer is to disolve the gold powder.
Well, back to work,
