Interlux brightsides

I'm painting the outside of my Annapolis Tandem Wherry. The first coat went on like a charm. Dried all nice and glossy and mirror-like. I did a light sanding with 400 and applied a 2nd coat. This coat has dried with some spots really glossy and some areas kind of satin-y...if you know what I mean.


I'm wondering what i did wrong that might have caused that? I'd like a uniform glossy look to the whole thing...


Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Give it time before you try to fix it. I've found that this paint takes several days to look right and a couple of weeks to fully cure. -Wes

I don't know if it's the root cause, but I always make sure i stir this stuff very thoroughly, with a broad stick - the solids tend to settle out at the bottom of the tin. I wipe over the sanded surface with a tissue damp with interlux thinners before the next coat.

The makers website has lots of information and FAQs on it, which will help think through any varables of surface prep, application, humidity, temperature etc.
