I have built, and with help from some of the good folks on this forum, painted my own kitchen. Part of the process was making carcasses and drawer boxes from birch ply. To finish the birch I used Ronseal Diamond Hard satin varnish, which most of you will probably know, is water bourn product. Now, as far as the final result gos I’m happy with it. The problem was getting the result. It really took 4 coats with a light sanding to produce the kind of finish I was looking for. Now, having been recommended by some of the forum users, Tikkurila Helmi paint for the doors and face frame, I was wondering if anyone had any experience of the Tikkurila Kiva 30 or Intact Laq 30? What I’m hoping for is a clear coat finish of some kind, that will go on in a couple of coats, dry reasonably quickly and give a good finish. Maybe I’m pushing my luck to satisfy all those criteria.
Thank you for any advice given.
