Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible results I used the water based set of products...stain, sealer and satin polycrylic finish. I followed all instructions precisely. The top coats will not level. On a tabletop with sections of about five square feet, the finish dried before I could brush from edge to edge leaving brush strokes and flashing. Trying to tip-up just made it worse. After deep sanding, sealing, staining, and three top coats, the tabletop looks worse than when I started. It is not possible to apply this finish per instructions and get an acceptable result. Do not use this product on unpainted fine wood finishes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crystal clear! I built a kitchen table out of birch and when the kids saw it, I ended up making three more out of eastern red cedar (juniper). I really like the clear finish that didn't amber the natural color. (However, eastern red cedar changes from purple to brown when finished.) One thing I learned was that I needed to apply thick coats that looked milky to reduce brush streaks. Contrary to your recommendation, instead of using a synthetic bristle brush I ended up using a high dollar natural bristle brush. The cedar is bad about having lots of tiny holes and imperfections from its many limbs. I would have liked for the polycrylic to flow more than what it did to help fill the imperfections. It was indoors during winter time and the woodstove no doubt lowered the humidity greatly, which may have accentuated the problem. However, the lack of odor made the projects possible. Couldn't have done it outside in the shop with rain, snow and fog. I'll use polycrylic on my next projects.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from flat on Maple Purchased this due the low volatility. There is no color to the finish so the wood loks just like the raw wood. I have used it on Maple ply, cherry and wlanut(solid wood). The wood looks awful and lifeless. I plan to try the oild modified on top and hopefully will bring colot to the wood.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great Hi - I love the finish if this for some of my home based business projects - but will seeing if this is food safe after cure time? If I cover a wood serving tray with this - can my clustomera use this to put directly on?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Aerosol Can Polycrylic Application Issue I have used Polycrylic frequently from the quart with great results. I can't say enough about the lid sealing feature as well. It is easy to snap closed and is easy to clean our the grooves as the polycrylic doesn't stick to the plastic rim or lid. GREAT FEATURE. Now to a criticism of the Aerosol version. I used it for the first time this evening and was disappointed in the spray. I shook the can for over 2 minutes and sprayed three marble solitaire boards that I had made for a craft fair. What I disliked was that as I was spraying, I started getting globs spitting out. It didn't hurt my finishing as I was able to use a small foam brush to brush and smooth these out. On my second coat it wasn't quite as bad but still occurred. I then may have figured it out on the third coat. If I stopped after about 3 to 4 seconds and shook the can 10 times or so and then kept doing so every 3 to 4 seconds, I didn't get the globs I used to paint cars in high school working for my father and as I worked my way through college so I know how to spray with a spray gun but these aerosols I'm somewhat disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not very impressed I have so far placed 3 coats of Polycrylic clear gloss finish over pine drawer fronts. There is absolutely no build up of product and the fronts look as if nothing has been applied. The pine was scraped, then I applied Minwax Wood Finish Golden Pecan 245 stain, then scuff sanded with 220 and cleaned with a cloth. No problem so far, everything looks good. After stirring, I have applied the material with a 2 inch foam brush each coat and there is no build up of finish to be seen, even when looking at the wood with a light shining obliquely across the surface. The product goes on and is immediately absorbed without a problem, leaving no trace of application and dries quickly. I have no recourse at this time but to go to another brand of finish to complete this project.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't dry right...Sticky finish I used this on some night tables and one of them, has a sticky finish. If water sits on it, the finish becomes sticky. I didn't add any stain, just natural finish on mahogany. The other night table is fine. I don't know if I did not allow the table to dry properly, since it was 2 years ago. But I had to go back and sand down that night table and I am waiting now to reapply this Polycrylic. I love the finished results its just this has happened twice using this product. Any advise would be helpful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent I’m in the middle of a project and using the spray Polycrylic on a kitchen set that I painted. I can’t find any information about cure time. Can anyone tell me how long I should wait after I’m completely done before using the set? Last thing I want to do is ruin all my hard work by sitting in the chairs too soon! As for my review- so far the spray is ok. I have nothing to compare it to because this is my first project, but as others have mentioned, it tends to drip and sputter quite a lot. I’m hoping I smoothed it out ok and the final finish will look even.
