How To: Tips & Techniques
Stirred, Not Shaken
Some ingredients in clear finishes settle over time, but shaking will only add unwanted bubbles – and may not mix the ingredients thoroughly. Always stir until all settlement is evenly dispersed.
Choosing a Sheen
Most clear finishes are available in gloss, semi-gloss and satin sheens. Selecting a sheen is a matter of personal preference. The gloss level will affect the appearance of your project but not its durability.
Aerosols Make It Easy
Aerosol cans of Minwax? clear protective finishes make finishing ornate pieces like interior shutters, decorative moldings and intricate craft projects much easier than dabbing with the tips of a brush.
