Remember the project I said I was working on yesterday….. it’s been a problem from the get go
It’s that red mahogany (I think it’s a record cabinet) from the 1940’s era that is sealed with a lacquer finish. After all these years the finish is crazed and cracked and so the red stain is no longer isolated and sealed in. Usually a coat of shellac will seal it and allow you to proceed with painting.
Not today. After 3 coats of shellac and 2 coats of primer, the red stain is still leaking into my paint. See that ugly pink stain? I don’t know why its being so stubborn. But until I find a way to stop what’s called the bleed through, I can’t get started with the real painting. You know those days where you work all day and accomplish nothing?. This is one of them.
The good news is the next set of videos is back from the editors and I’ll be posting those either tonight or tomorrow.
