I think I know the answer to this, but I figured I’d ask here anyway. I have a bunch of small parts:

I need these to match a desk surface I did with water-based polyurethane to avoid any ambering. If there is a well regarded wipe-on water-based poly, I have not heard of it. Obviously I could spray the water-based finish easily, but I don’t have a spray system. So, I resorted to brushing the finish on with as small a brush as I could find. This is really time consuming, and with so many edges, there are lots of drips to attend to, some of which inevitably get missed.

Is there a better way to do this without a sprayer?

ugh, serious brain fart on that one. Thanks. For some reason I thought those were only oil-based.

There was a time where it wasn’t easy to find, but even lacquer seems to be moving to water-based, and that’s something I didn’t even think was actually possible.

Have your say...
