2nd Coat of Lacquer This is the 2nd day of spraying. I am warming to this finish. I am using Deft BRUSHING lacquer mixed 2/3 lacquer thinner 1/3 lacquer. Since it is bushing lacquer it has additives that slow the drying. You just have to be careful to avoid running AND it takes AT LEAST a full day of drying before you can do any sanding between coats if you need to. The finish is very slow to cure and will hold finger prints if touched even hours after sprayng until cured. This is very different from my experience with spray lacquer that can be worked between coats after a few minutes.
