  • 2. There are a some things to think so as to paint over an existing cease . One is the generalcircumstance of the original finish. Most factory finishes are executed in lacquer and older finisheslean to drop off their malleability and get hairline breaks running through it. If this has taken place inyour piece or youve bare or worn spots, it might be worthy to go ahead and strip the old finish up.Otherwise the cracks will come out in the finished project.If your finish appears sound, where you need to begin is by getting rid of all the hardware. Any partscoming off might make the job more easygoing.Catch some naphtha or mineral spirits and a few clean cloth rags, and pass over the whole piecedown once or twice. This will dispatch any furniture polish or body oils that might still be present. Iftheres any organic matter left on it, you might have to apply a damp rag to get rid of it beforeprogressing to the next step.Youll necessitate to do some sanding with four hundred grit wet or dry sandpaper so as to allow forthe new finish tooth to adhere to, . Sand it till youve dispatched all traces of the original sheen. Toget in some nooks and crevasses, a all-purpose Maroon scotch-brite pad acts considerably. When youfinished the sanding, give it a good blowing off with compacted air (Wear your particle mask) orvacuum up the dust accompanied with a damp rag.With all the preparation work acted, give it a final wipe down with naphtha and allow it to dry for atleast half-hour before using your first coat of paint. Be sure you are making it in a dry dust freeenvironment if you are able to. A tack rag is a very significant finishing tool. Oil based finishes aregoing to be the most well-matched to the lacquer, and hold up the best. They need a paint thinnerfor cleanup rather than water. Be sure you come after the instructions on the can.
