A matte finish top coat, which is very fitting for milk paint and antique pieces. You can apply it with a brush, roller or sprayer and get great results no matter how it’s applied. This Tough Coat can be brushed on and it levels out as it dries.
Since it has a matte finish, if there are imperfections in the surface, it doesn’t catch the light and draw attention to it.
It is fantastic for sealing chippiness to keep it under control or to make it more practical for everyday use.
It does not yellow and adds durability to hard used pieces by adding heat and moisture resistance. It can also be used as a sealer/stain blocker prior to painting.
DetailsA few tips if you’re applying Tough Coat…
It is thinner than other poly products I’ve worked with, so if you try to lay it on too thick, it will drip. It’s better to apply two thin coats than one thick one.
Don’t judge it until it dries. It can look a little streaky/brush-strokey as it’s drying, but it looks velvety smooth once it’s dry.
Give it 30 days for fully cure. You can use the piece, but be gentle with it!
It’s a durable finish, but it’s not bulletproof! It’s still a good idea to use trivets for hot dishes, coasters for drinks (or wipe up sitting water), etc. to prevent water and heat marks.
