Q.) How do I apply sanding sealer? 

A.) Spray or brush medium wet coat. Allow 30 to 60 minutes of dry time. If your sandpaper gums up, allow additional dry time, or use a fan as suggested in step #3.

Scuff sand with 220-grit or finer sandpaper.

Clean off dust with a damp cloth. We suggest a maximum of 2 coats with sealer. We suggest 2 full coats of the sanding sealer, without sanding between coats. Sanding only after the 2nd coat of sealer gives a thicker film coat, eliminating any grain raising between coats and reducing your chance of sanding through the stain.


“As a conservator/restorer of fine furniture, I was looking for a water-based system to replicate the look and clarity of a shellac finish.  I have used the X-119 product in the past, but was pleasantly surprised with the outcome and clarity of the Aqua Seal sealer, and the lacquer provided a beautiful topcoat with exceptional depth, and color over my dye/gel stain base.  No toxic solvents to mess with, no reaction to the high humidity of western Florida, and to the untrained and trained eye, a shellac look alike finish that brings out the grain and beauty of this 160+ year old chair. Thanks for the great products. “
