Clear PMF?

Postby Sanuk.Sanan » Sat Oct 19, 2019 1:50 pm

Hi Friends!

I'm renovating an "old" handbuilt. The interior and exterior painting is done, but I'd really like to add a stripe of Hawaiian print fabric across the sides. The TD is already skinned (PMF over plywood) and painted (latex exterior house paint), so the fabric stripe is really only for show.

Can I do a PMF with clear titebond and then clear pain? So should I use minwax poly to shellack it on?

Thanks for your help and wisdom!

Or maybe I could use Mod Podge to glue the fabric on the TD and then a clear coat over it?

Either will work. I worry about the fabric fading or even the finishes changing the colors. Best to do a test piece.

There was a post discussing using clear tint base.
Ask the local paint store for a UV resistant product.
