Buckocaster51, I know you have moved on from the Deft lacquer to 2 part polyurethane. I have not done so yet but would like to. Can you share with me how many coats of two part clear it is taking you to gain enough depth to level out over the flake? With rattle can lacquer it takes as you will know more than 30 coats. Also adding a picture of a new one I'm working on in metal flake. Thought I would try an American flag so far I think it's going good.
