Plan to spend about $100 on supplies like sandpaper, primer, masking tape and poly sheeting, a tack rag
, polishing compound and touch-up paint and clear coat.
Unfortunately, I do not have a picture of cissing, but Figure 1 shows an example of dewetting that looks somewhat similar, although this was a spray application over a first coat that was contaminated by wiping with a tack rag
that had been dipped in solvent.
Q I am very careful to sand stocks with progressive grits, always use a sanding block, and employ a tack rag
to remove sanding dust.
Immediately prior to painting, the hull is wiped down with Awlprep to clean and de-wax, then wiped down again with a tack rag
to remove dust and any lint from the de-wax rag.
Then clean all the fine dust off with a tack rag
. This is a sticky cloth which you can buy from any good DIY store or specialist paint supplier like Dial- A-Colour, but you could just use a damp, absorbent sponge.
Vacuum the floor thoroughly and wipe it with a tack rag
. Then paint it with one coat of high-quality, oilbased, exterior-grade primer.
Finish by vacuuming the entire piece or wiping it with a tack rag
(a resin-impregnated cloth) to pick up fine dust particles.
Instead of a tack rag
, use a clean cloth dampened with water.
