Looking for suggestions on a product for this. I have it all primed with pigmented shellac. It's at my shop and I have both airless sprayers and conventional hvlp setup. Preferably something waterborne. My ventilation is not the best.. Oh and I'm in Canada.;)

+the high performance flat would seal this up nice.
Unfortunately I cant get GF in Newfoundland. May I also mention that she (the designer) wants it in either a Matte finish or High Gloss, in the colour BM Van Dusen Blue..

Try Duralaq. See if your bm store can get it in.

You can be my Guinea pig.
That's what I was thinking. My local BM store does carry the Lenmar. Can they tint that to any colour? And does it come in a matte or high gloss?

How do you all get rid of the impressions left from the old handles? Such as in the middle picture. On my recent project I used 90 minute drywall mud and sanded smooth. Looks great. But I'm concerned that it won't be hard enough. Know what I mean? Before I primed it, it would scratch easy. Maybe after primer and 2 (or 3 ) coats of Advance it will be hard enough. It's good enough for walls so i figured why not for doors.

Wondering if this would be a good project to try the high gloss "Command " on..:unsure:. Should probably test out the marring with that product first. Heard it has great blocking properties.

Scuff-x would probably work well too

Have you got the Command yet over there? My BM store has been talking about it but I don't think it's available here yet. Looking forward to trying it and comparing it to Scuff-x and Advance

I had considered ScuffX but it doesn't come in high gloss. Have also heard that things stick to the tops even after a while. Just not sure if it's designed for furniture..Command is not in the stores here quite yet, but my Rep has some for me to play around with. Suposively its to compete with Breakthrough.. Hopefully the 250 version..fingers crossed. Drys in 15mins, recoat in 1 hr..

Just got back from my paint store. I asked them again if they'd even heard of Command, but they haven't heard a thing whatsoever. Also asked them about the reformulation of the other lines of BM, but all they'd heard was that Aura was getting modified and they had no details on what was going to happen to it.

No idea. Don't do much cabinet work as I don't have a shop. I'm not even sure they stock it as I don't remember seeing it there. Due to location, I get my paint from the paint department at Home Hardware. It's either that or Rona or Canadian Tire. lol.

Oh, I thought there was a BM there.
Nope, closest one is in Southampton or down your way in Goderich. Personally, I love dealing with the folks at Home Hardware. The paint staff don't move around from one department to another and they're very knowledgeable and easy to deal with. Now getting pro grade equipment is another story. For that, I have to travel elsewhere for anything other than the basics.
