Orange Peel

2 posts in this topic

I brushed Fine Paints of Europe Dutchlac on a door the other day. It went on super thick. I kept adding mineral spirits to thin it out but I ended up with quite a bit of orange peel.  

 

It has been 72-hours and the paint has cured and for the most part looks good. But where the orange peel was bad it's all gummed up and not really cured.

 

Do I wait and let that cure. Or do I just sand it off?

The orange peel was likely caused by too much thinner in the paint, causing uneven drying or there could have been some oils on the surface being painted.

 

I would wait until it cures and sand.  You might be able to sand it smooth, then re-coat.
