SOURCE: I want to spray a stairs with pc cellulose paint .It was previously varnished with oil based varnish

You are going to have to strip the varnish off with a commercial varnish stripper. There are a few brands and the ingredients are about the same in all of them. Use very fine 200 grit sandpaper to roughen up the wood surface a bit for better adhesion. Home Depot and Lowe's have suitable products. You can ask about the types of paints and prep for use on stairs as well.

Tip

Preparing your paint can for first use


When opening a new paint can (or varnish, etc.), take a nail and poke about 5 holes around the top of the can just under where the lid seals. This will allow the paint/stain/varnish to drip back into the can and not fill the ring where the lid goes back on.

How best to prepare painting over oil based varnish


The best bet is to leave the oil poly on the treads clean it up and refinish it .
However if you need to paint for what ever reason I would recomand grinding back to wood its a lot of work pine or oak treads .
But the problem is stairs get a lot of LBS. per sq/in .In a small area of the tread and depeneding on how high of a traffic area it is nothing will stick to oil poly or varnish.
Strip them and go with an epoxy system .
And by the way I have running comerical paint jobs for 40 years

I used a marine varnish as a top coat to my painted countertops and they still feel tacky after a week of drying. Any suggestions?


Check to see if the varnish you used is a sun curing varnish, if it is, yo may need to get some sun lamps to get the varnish to cure. If that isn't the case, you may have to remove the varnish and use something more suitable for the countertops.

What's the best way to clean an oil painting. It looks as if this painting might have hung in a smokers home and is dingy and a bit 'yellowed'. I'm an artist and have access to quite a number of produ


Look at the back of it to see if it has yellowed. If there are yellow stains on the frame and the back, then it is not the varnish in the oil paint that has yellowed. You can then use something like 409 cleaner to get the stains off. You should blot the painting and not scrub or wipe it. If the varnish is yellowing you can get a product called conservationists liquid and apply that as per the directions to help with the varnish problem.

My Armoire is varnished; I would like to paint it would I need to remove the lacquer first?


Yes, you would need to remove the varnish before you painted it otherwise the paint would not take
to the wood and run, it would look very messy. My advice is to take the armory apart and sand, clean
and paint each piece separately.

Is a light coating of oil the only thing to use to return your gas grill exterior to a shinier black again? Was thinking that would make it sticky after it heats up.


A light coat of oil will bake on and create a brown varnished look that you will have one heck of a time getting it off. If the gas grill is painted... and not porcelin coated no amount of cleaning will bring back the shiny black if the pain has been faded by sunlight. The only thing that will bring back that sheen again is a "high temp" gloss enamel paint. (Clear coating is NOT recommended. post paint as it will also darken even if it is high temp)

To clean it use a product like Mr. Muscle Kitchen cleaner or similar product. Engine degreaser works too but will dull the paint. If you plan on cleaning for painting you can use engine degreaser. If not... stick with the Mr. Muscle kitchen cleaner. Just make sure to rinse thoroughly and let it dry and lightly sand / wipe before painting.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Heat Guns Troubleshooting


Uses for the heat gun include: * drying paint or varnish - 30 to 130 °C - care has to be taken as dust particles may be blown onto the paint/varnish. * drying out damp wood (before filling or painting) - around 100 to 200°C. * softening adhesive (such as when applying worktop edge trim or lifting floor tiles) - 300 to 400°C. * bending plastic pipes - 200 to 300°C. * heat-shrinking plastic film - 200 to 300°C. * welding some plastics - 330 to 400°C.
