Pretesting the Finish

If your lacquered furniture has ever been refinished — given a new coat of clear lacquer — you may have a situation in which the top coat is clear and the subcoat is colored. In some cases, a clear coat may have been applied over a color coat at the factory. When you have two different coats like this, reamalgamation may cause streaking as the two lacquers blend. Once streaking has occurred, it cannot be corrected and you will have to remove the entire finish and start over. For this reason, test reamalgamation on a hidden area before going to work on visible surfaces.
