Satin Black Lacquer Finish

Hello,

I am trying to duplicate a Satin Black Lacquer finish on Oak. I am looking at Minwax Satin Brushing Lacquer, Lacquer Sanding Sealer, etc. and oil based Rustoleum Flat Black Paint as the color. Any suggestions, cautions, hints?


Thanks,

Bob

I'm not sure if the rustoleum and the lacquer are compatible although rustoleum and polyurethane are. If you're dead set on lacquer, test on some scrap wood first.

What kind of finish are you looking for. Oak has an open grain which may detract from the finish look. One way around that would be to apply a super thin coat of joint compound and then sand it all off after it dries. The remaining j/c will fill the grain allowing you to have a slick looking [no open grain] piece of oak.

I am trying match an existing piece of oak black lacquered furniture (with the grain showing). Per the manufacturer, black paint then clear satin lacquer was used to finish the piece. I have several scraps of oak with the flat black paint drying. Next will be the lacquer under coat sealer and then the brushing lacquer.


thanks,

Bob

Update:

Applied 1 coat of lacquer sanding sealer and two coats brushing lacquer over Rustoleum flat black paint on oak. Seems to have been successful. Am going to try Poly over the flat black next to see if I like the results better.

If the looks of the two are similar - go with poly, it will wear longer/better.

Update:

I got the best results using flat black spray paint then 3 coats of satin poly------ a close match to the piece I was matching.

regards,

Bob
