This matte topcoat furniture paint sealer from Black Dog Salvage may or may not growl out a warning, but it will protect your painted furniture from everyday use.

Tough enough for floors, this matte topcoat paint protector can be used on all types of interior projects – cabinets, countertops, furniture, decorative items and more. Specially designed for use over Black Dog Salvage Furniture Paint, this matte finish furniture paint sealer can be used to cover any type of woodworking project. It can even go over a vintage piece to maintain the distressed or aged patina.

Commonly referred to as a water-based polyacrylic sealer, the acrylic resin and self-curing urethane blend builds quickly, making it an ideal choice for beginners and professionals alike. It’s self-leveling to help you achieve a flat matte finish without brush marks, while the low VOC and low odor formula means you won’t have to open every window, work outside or wear a ventilated mask to complete your project. UV absorbers suspended throughout the Guard Dog Topcoat Paint Protector ensure a lifetime of use without discoloration.

The Guard Dog Topcoat Paint Protector can be applied once, while furniture paint wax products require regular application every few months to maintain their finish.

Black Dog Salvage Topcoat Painting Techniques:

Treat your Guard Dog right: stir only. No shaking

Apply it to your project with a good quality brush (bristle or foam – your choice) or a paint sprayer

If spraying, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s setting and thinning recommendations

Lightly sand between coats

If painting on pieces where chalk paint waxes have been used, make sure to remove any remaining wax

One quart covers approximately 150 square feet and dries to the touch in approximately 1 hour. Item can be put into light service in 1-2 hours and normal use overnight. Items with heavy use may require a full cure time of a few days. Made in USA.
