Painted work

So-called painted work—bedroom and living-room furniture, kitchen furniture, etc.—are spray coated with pigmented nitro-cellulose, acid catalyst or polyurethane finishes available in gloss and semi-matt formulas. The build up is the same as for clear lacquer finishes, with appropriate pigmented grain fillers, sealers and base coats, etc. and the final surfaces flattened with wet and dry silicon carbide paper, cutting down pastes and burnishing creams. Brush coating can be attempted but is likely to fail on large surfaces, for it is the dead smoothness of this type of finish which constitutes much of its charm.
