stickers on wood and laquer

7 posts in this topic

I know you can't laquer over stickers on wood, but can you use something else 1st to seal the sticker on the wood and then laquer over it and the rest of the piece of wood? Any advice would be greatly appreaciated. Thanks

THe clear epoxy would work. I think yoiu could get by with just putting several coats of sanding sealer or varnish over them would work too.

I used it on a bartop when i built a bar for my neighbor.

He put playing cards and some small fishing flies,photos and some poker chips on it.I used tongue and groove cedar for the bar top,spray adhesive to attach items to the bar,and used the pour on for the final surface. I had to use 2 coats of the pour on to cover everything so surface was smooth.After all was finished,surface is about 1/4 " thick.The bar was finished about 2-3 years ago and no reaction and has held up extremely well.last winter I went over to buff out some scratches and looks like new again. the bar is 36"x96" and took 2 container of the epoxy to do the job( 1 for each coat).thw nice part is it is self leveling so you are guaranteed to have a level surface as long as it is fairly close to begin with.

I'm making bean bag boards so would this work for them? I have the stickers on the wood already and hope to find something to seal them on so I can lacquer over the rest of the boards. Can I get this epoxy and just do that and forget about everything else? Thanks for the advice. Never done this before. Learning as I go.
