Hoping Dave and Jim D. pitch in here.
The chancel furniture here at church is about 50 years old. The finish, especially on the altar need redone. Looks like some water damage and a delaminating of the finish. Plan is to scrape it all off. Recolor to match communion rail. The baptismal font likewise will need scraping and recoloring. Don't plan to scrape the communion rail. Doesn't need it.
OK so far.
I am fairly handy with spaying lacquer though I have never used the water based stuff. Now I am back in California and no NC lacquer allowed.
Had planned to thoroughly wash and rinse all the surfaces to be sprayed. Want to spray all the surfaces including the communion rail to get the same sheen off of everything.
Can I spray water based lacquer over any other cured finish? Any particular coloring agent best under water based lacquer? Jim, would you please provide your finishing protocol with water based lacquer, including part numbers and and sources?
I have a week to get this done, beginning August 3. I do have help with the washing and rinsing and the scraping. And the coloring of the two tops. Spraying, however, is all on me. I have an Apollo HVLP unit with which I am quite familiar and have used to good effect over the years.
Please help me get ready for this task. Also, I need time to acquire whatever I need beforehand. Thanks.
