Anytime you chop an edge, it leaves a fuzzyness. Take a look at the video above to see what you are able to do to make sure a easy end on MDF.
Issues I Utilized in This Challenge:
Primers for MDF:
- Zinsser’s BIN is my favourite as a result of it dries quickest and sands best.
- However I additionally like Kilz Authentic and Zinsser Cowl Stain. All of those are solvent-based, so cleanup is a ache.
- Each Zinsser and Kilz have a number of variations of water-based stain-blocking primers. They clog sandpaper greater than solvent-based merchandise. However I nonetheless use them once I need simple cleanup.
- As an alternative of primer, some folks use water-based polyurethane (akin to Minwax Polycrylic) to seal MDF. It dries quick and sands very properly. However it’s probably not a primer and paint could not adhere to it as properly.
