I am attempting my second finish and first fabric finish. If I understand correctly, the general process is - glue on fabric -> bury fabric -> clear coat (-> burst -> clear coat) I have done about 6-7 applications of trying to bury the finish but it is still not even / completely buried. It's a bit hard to photograph, but if in the foreground for example, the foggy lighter parts are the varnish that has been sanded and the dark spots are the lower points. My process is to brush on the varnish then lightly hand sand with 800 between coats. On my test patch I tried clear coat over the top and it looks pretty good. Not professional, but not a finish I would be unhappy with. So what should I do from here? Do I keep applying coats and sanding until the finish is entirely even? I am wary of the varnish being too thick as well. Should I be more aggressive with the sanding or changing grits? Or can I apply clear from here and use that to fill out any inconsistencies? (I am using automotive acrylic lacquer for the clear). This is the varnish I am using. I tried testing with sanding sealer as well but it darkened the fabric too much. (Also note, the pattern is actually warped a little, i.e. not completely straight lines so the finish won't be perfect no matter what I do. I would like to try to get it as good as I can though).
