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.
