How do I achieve an ultra-smooth finish with Clear Topcoat Sealer or Clear Finish?

If painting, for an ultra-smooth finish, first make sure your paint layer is painted using a brush designed for a smooth application such as our Flat Brush or Oval Brush. If the paint layer is not smooth, the sealer and varnishes will highlight any inconsistency and texture in the paint.

For a super ultra-smooth paint layer use a finishing sandpaper (500 – 1000 grit) and very lightly sand the painted surface by hand to remove texture before sealing.

Apply sealers using a high-quality varnish brush like our 37mm Flat Brush or 37mm Oval Brush. Both brushes were designed for smooth application and are fine tipped to lessen the chance of brush strokes.
