I have been derelict in my postings. This Green Job of the Week was actually completed about three weeks ago. The noteworthy aspect of this job is that it was all done onsite using Green finishes.
The kid’s toy cabinet was finished with a water-based white conversion varnish and on the entertainment center we used a clear water-based conversion varnish.
Based on technology developed over the past twenty years in Italy this is a much more durable and longer lasting finish than traditional lacquer or even pre-catalyzed lacquer.
And, best of all, it’s Green. This means that everybody gets to breathe, from Luis and Jose Sprayman (no, they’re not related, they just happen to share the last same name) to me, to the homeowners and their kids.
You could actually be in the room where we were spraying, without wearing a mask, and suffer no ill effects. This would not be possible with a traditional solvent based conversion varnish or a pre-catalyzed lacquer, either one of which would have driven the family from the home.
The kids thought it was pretty cool that we got to play tent all the time!!
