Thursday.  Painting is a patient mans game.  I'm not a patient man.

Progress so far:

Cut the speaker hole in the marquee!

  • Fill all the screw holes and sand

  • Apply wood hardner to the cut edges of the MDF, then sand lightly to round the edges a little

  • 2 coats of solvent(oil) based primer

  • 4 Coats of black gloss with progressively lighter grain sanding between each coat

  • All coats applied using a small mohair roller

  • 2-3 coats of clear satin gloss on the edges where you would find T-Moulding on a standard size cabinet.

  • Now it's dry I can highly recommend using wood hardener (or wood glue mixed with water) on all your MDF edges.  The cut edges are now rock hard and far less likely to fray.
