Likewise, how do I get a high gloss finish on wood?
- Sand the wood with 150-grit sandpaper.
- Wipe off the sanding dust using a damp towel or rag.
- Prime the wood with a stain-blocking wood primer.
- Use a foam brush to paint the wood surface with ahigh-gloss,oil-based paint.
- Apply a second coat of high-gloss, oil-based paint afterthefirst coat dries.
Similarly, should I sand between coats of high gloss paint? I also prefer multiple coats of flatpaintas opposed to one goopy, thick coat of highergloss orenamel paint. Apply multiple coats,working in thedirection of the wood grain, allowing eachcoat to dry asrecommended by instructions on thepaint can. Sandwith fine sandpaper betweencoats after theydry.
