Alkyd type varnish
I'm busy doing my first guitar refinishing and I just ran into a funny issue :
I bought a varnish spray can to use for the clear coats and it's based on alkyd. Tried it on a sample and how funny, the coat leaves a noticeable yellowish cloud after drying (or curing whatever, I don't know the difference).
After some research I see that Alkyd is oil based, which is probably the reason for this stain.
While I found the result disgusting at first, I'm now thinking that it would make for a nice fake aging effect. I might use it on the guitar after all ...
I see people also use water based varnish (or lacquer, I don't know the difference either lol) but I can't find any in my local home depot.
Looks like I don't have options really ...
Anyone got experience with Alkyd based finishes ?
At least I hope it gets hard enough after drying and I won't run into problems when sanding and buffeting.
