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 | SEALER :: VARATHANE Polyurethane *Interior Water-Based* Polyurethane :: Recommended w/ experience using it and other products by Holly @ In The Fun Lane. Use this kind to avoid yellowing/discoloration. Best when used in a sprayer but the same finish can be obtained by buying the spray can, however this can be a little more pricey as she says she often needs a 1-2 cans for an averaged sized dresser. You can still get a smooth, pro finish by manually applying sealer w/ a foam brush.
