PAINTING | SEALER :: Modern Masters Dead Flat Varnish :: An Amazon reviewer stated she had issues w/ various water-based poly brands, even the flattest poly was too shiny, went on unevenly & was tacky days later. She found this & said the quality was "OUTSTANDING," went on 100x better than regular poly, dried so smooth, she didn't have to sand btwn coats, had NO SHINE, NO BRUSH MARKS & the final product looked like pro work, not a home job (& was able to varnish 4 large pieces of furniture)!

PAINTING | SUPPLIES / PREP :: Add a conditioner--it helps reduce brush marks :: Most pros prefer to use oil-based paint on trim for two reasons: Oil-based paint levels out better & doesn’t dry as fast as water-based, leaving more time to brush & a smoother surface. But water-based paint is more environmentally friendly, less stinky and easier to clean up. So, you can make water-based paint perform more like oil paint by adding latex paint conditioner. Floetrol is a good brand.
