Lately I’ve been using this.

Are you spraying in your own gun? I know a few other folks do that. Also, are you encountering color shifts especially yellowing from reaction with the original lacquer....I wonder if the driers in the spray cans are creating that.....

For this cabinet I’m actually spraying from their rattle cans. Never had any color-shifting with the original lacquer, but I usually lay down a couple of light coats before going heavier. Maybe that helps?

I was thinking more on playfields, but cabinets as well. So what equipment do you use? Would think your airbrush would be too small for large areas?

I have used my airbrush with Varathane to do smaller areas—like the pedestal—but you’re right: it’s awful for coverage. That’s when I break out the rattle cans.

How do you apply Varathane to playfields? Blast Off is super smooth.

Rattle cans. Just lots of detailed sanding between coats. Lat coat is allowed to cure 2-3 weeks, then sanded to at least 1000 then novus 2 by hand.
