Thanks for the suggestion. And as others have suggested, I've sanded it down. Still have a bit to go, but you can see in the photos how that coat is pretty "smeary."
I like the idea of the floor sealer, and have been reading up on some of the posts that you recomend that for. 2 coats with a sand between? How long do you wait to sand?
Now I have to figure out how to unfuck the deck (my fault, and possibly a whole different thread for that).
Not a hot or gloss coat.
If you strain and wipe your sanded board down with a tac rag, you don’t have to sand between coats. Some do and in that case fine grit like 320 or 600. Just to knock down the tits or fine specks. Burnish it with a maroon or grey 3M pad and a random orbital. There’s no time frame in mind. Just make sure it is good and dry. You could also just rattle can it with Rustolem Poly Clear satin or gloss. Then Wet n Dry sand and hit with a little polish. The rattle can Poly is essentially the same finish you just sanded off.
for acrylic sealer you need a finer sand than what is at last pictures, acrylic sealer isn’t thick as lam resin. at which grit you sand McDing ?
Most of the time I just go over everything with a maroon or grey pad under a random orbital. I will wet & dry though if My sealer is dirty or I got dust on it somehow. In that case I lightly sand with water using a worn out piece of 600. Doing my best to not scratch it. If I do I then hit it with Maguire’s “Perfect It”. I only do these steps if I somehow screwed up and contaminated my wipe on. Otherwise the pad and orbital do a good job. The more wet and dry and polishing you do though the better it looks to a point. Which is the point of sanding it off. I use the Satin. They also make a “Wet Look” Gloss.
