    Re: How to Paint Wood (mdf) to a High Gloss Mirror Finish With a Spray Can

    I'm starting the paint job, so far I've rounded all the edges of the box and sanded it
    using 80 grit and slopped some wood filer on all the cut edges. After the wood filler
    dries I'll smooth it down with 230 grit and begin the primer stage by brushing it on.

    * Miniwax Sanding Sealer Primer(brush on)
    * 4 cans of Gloss Black Lacquer for wood
    * 1 can automotive clear
    * Elmers wood filler




    Wood Filler on Cut Sides...






    1st Coat of Primer...


    3rd Coat of Primer...




    3rd Coat of Black Lacquer...

    Cool, ya I live in Mesa now though.

    I probably have around ~$30, Got most of it from home depot.

    Wet-sanding is where it's at when your all done. That Lacquer paint shines up awesome!

    looks real good. might attempt to do it with my next box. where does the rubbing compound and the clear come into play? i would rather ask since yours just came out pretty nice. also do you have anymore pics after the 3rd coat of black?

    Re: How to Paint Wood (mdf) to a High Gloss Mirror Finish With a Spray Can

    Actually never ended up using that clear coat, was no need for it.

    The rubbing compound is like using 1500 grit sand paper. I used the rubbing compound after I was done wet sanding. I then finished with some Meguiars Gold Class Polishing Wax last.

    The rubbing compound comes in handy in the future if you pick up some scratches on the box and want to quickly take them out. Just remember to finish with a polish.

    No more pics after 3rd coat, but you can see the wavy lines in the paint, you need to wet-sand the entire box to get those out. There was massive orange peel also before wet-sanding.

    Yea, rubbing compound works miracles... So you applied no clear at all? Any idea what other colors they had in the lacquer or did they have a ton?

    how long or how much are you sanding with the wet sand? i see what you mean now with it. think i'm going to attempt this one on my next box build here in the next few weeks.
