Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not so scary, great result I had a carpenter make a rolling "wine bar" that was paint grade, but being amazing, he used a top quality basswood plywood with maple trim. Once I saw it I decided I didn't want to cover it up, just protect the wood. He recommended a water based product, as did Home Depot (way easier to use, to clean up, and the fumes are much less). I bought this in Clear Satin. I used the technique and patience of a deranged raccoon. I had watched a YouTube video of a women discussing how careful you need to be, to only stir slowly and not shake the can, to only go one way and in the direction of the grain, be wary of brush strokes and bubbles, etc. Nope. Tom Sawyer would have laughed at my application process. It's thick and sticky on wood so I spread in cross-hatch, then went back and smoothed it out with the grain. I sorta sanded lightly between 1st and 2nd coats. I did use a microfiber rag to dust before each application. I think it turned out beautifully. If you are afraid to try, go with Satin as it does dry clear (but goes on milky).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New cherry paneling looks AWESOME with Polycrylic! I am currently installing cherry picture frame paneling in our former dining room, which we've converted into a billiards room (who REALLY ever uses their dining room anymore anyway?). I just finished 12 4x8 1/4" cherry plywood panels with 2 coats of Polycrylic over a coat of Minwax water-based sanding sealer, and the results are simply incredible. The Polycrylic has been a joy to apply, brushed out very nicely to a completely even finish, and left NO brush marks at all. It dried very quickly, and I was able to apply the next coat in a couple of hours. A quick sand with 220 is all that’s needed before the next coat. In the past, I've always used 2 coats of dewaxed shellac, then two coats of nitrocellulose brushing lacquer - but I am now a believer in the Minwax water-based products. Shellac and lacquer are much more difficult to apply, and they produce no better results than Polycrylic. In fact, I think I actually like the look of the Polycrylic on cherry better than lacquer - and it produces NO FUMES AT ALL (lacquer fumes will literally knock you out). It doesn't even need to be rubbed out like I have always done with the lacquer. For my future cherry projects - or any projects - Minwax Polycrylic will be my go-to finish! I'm very impressed and quite pleased with the results. Pictures are of the finished panels glued on the walls. The “picture frame” trim will be next. It will be 5/4” solid cherry. Can’t wait to see how it finishes with the Polycrylic!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Turns yellow Painted a dresser white. Used this as a finish in the clear matte. It turned my dresser yellow in spots. Im pregnant and dont have time or the energy to keep redoing it. Only thing i do like is that it is fast drying. Other than that disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No no no no and no This is not good stuff. I have always trusted Minwax but this is the worst. I’d have had more control with Elmer’s glue and water

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and quick I was nervous to try this product out but was pleasantly surprised! It went on easily and dries quickly. I was surprised that there is hardly an odor with this product too. I chalk painted my entertainment center and after a few paint chipping, decided I needed a protective coating over it if I didn’t want to repaint every 2 years. A blogger recommended this product and I couldn’t have agreed with her more. I chose the satin gloss to give it a pretty shine and it made the color pop more. I’m incredibly happy with the end results.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Trouble spraying smooth finish. While I like the clarity and hardness of this product, spray application is not as easy as Minwax polyurethane or lacquer. The polycrylic does not level very well -particularly if you have an older spray can. Even with a new can, have to spray heavier coats to get a smooth finish. Horizontal surfaces come out okay, but on vertical surfaces it will run and sag. I also had to refinish a coffee table top (26" x 46"), and wanted to use up an older spray can. It came out all lumpy, even though I added a whole new spray can over it (while still wet) to try to smooth it out. I was particularly careful to shake it thoroughly and keep the nozzles clear and clean, but product age is apparently a real problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Very happy with how the polycrilic preformed, I build furniture for a living and use this product for a wide array of things. I started using it because when applying over vinyl it doesn't discolor the vinyl. Apply a very nice and water clean up is a breeze.
