Vade Posted November 7, 2006 Report Share Posted November 7, 2006 Not that this is a problem or anything since I've already stripped past a lot of it to get to the bare wood beneath, but it was a surprise to me to find that there was a thick layer of . . . er, "something" beneath the black paint. When it bakes a little under a heatgun it seems to take on the color and consistency of amber. This is, i'm sure, something really common that I was just unaware of, like a smoothing basecoat that precedes the final painting but it was a LOT thicker than I would have guessed somthing like that would be. So what exactly is this? What's it made of? Should I be putting a similarly ludicrous-thick series of coats of this when I get to the refinish stage? ~~Vade Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
