I use a LOT of rattle can lacquer, especially on many of the items I sell in my gallery. I have been using and favoring Deft for a long time, and also keep it in bulk for use in my spray gun equipment.

Recently, I tried a fairly new Rustoleum lacquer in a green and white rattle can, which retails for less than half of the Deft. So far, I like it. It dries a bit shiner, but after rubbing it out and putting on the paste wax, I did two golf club hat racks in less than three hours, start to finished. They looked very good. The temps were in the mid 60’s, and I sprayed it outdoors.

If you want to finish in one day, rattle can lacquer and paste wax.

This video shows a method for thinning and spraying watch brushing lacquer. In many cases, nitrocellulose lacquer and other solvent based spray finishes are becoming difficult to find. This is a functional substitute, which will help those who do not like to work with water-based lacquers.
