Here’s a refresher: How to Achieve the Duco Paint Finish

Are you as lustrous as the duco paint finish?

True or false, Boysen Automotive Lacquer can be applied to cars?

FALSE! Boysen Automotive Lacquer is not for cars, it can only be applied on interior wood and metal surfaces. The term "automotive finish" relates only to the high gloss finish of a car paint.

True or False, Boysen Automotive Lacquer can be applied on exterior surfaces.

FALSE! Boysen Automotive Lacquer is not made for exterior surfaces because it will peel and flake when directly exposed to sunlight. It's perfect for indoor wooden surfaces like doors, doorjambs, cabinets, and shelves. We often use it on kitchen cabinets to give it that durable and attractive duco finish. This high-gloss finish can withstand the frequent cooking and cleaning done in the kitchen.

For wooden surfaces, what primer should you use with Boysen Automotive Lacquer?

Prime wooden surfaces with Boysen Lacquer Primer Surfacer.

When painting wooden surfaces, what Boysen putty should you use with Boysen Automotive Lacquer?

The pros follow this painting schedule when painting wooden surfaces with Boysen Automotive Lacquer:

First coat: Boysen Lacquer Primer Surfacer

Putty: Boysen Lacquer Spot Putty

Second coat: Boysen Lacquer Primer Surfacer

Final coat: Boysen Automotive Lacquer

This painting schedule might look simple on paper but achieving the perfect duco finish is labor-intensive. The process of doing the whole system can be repetitive depending on the surface imperfection or the look that you want to achieve. Experienced painters have to go over the procedure repeatedly (primer-putty-primer-topcoat) to get an elegant high-gloss finish.

True or false, you can apply Boysen Automotive Lacquer on metal surfaces.

TRUE! You can use Boysen Automotive Lacquer on metal surfaces. Just make sure that you're going to prime it with Boysen Epoxy Primer before applying Boysen Automotive Lacquer.

You can apply Boysen Automotive Lacquer on previously painted surfaces.

If you've applied Boysen Automotive Lacquer on the surface before, then you don't have to get rid of the paint. However, if the old paint is not compatible with the ones you're about to apply, you have to scrape off the paint and clean the surface.

Is Boysen Automotive Lacquer a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) or Do-It-For-Me (DIFM) product?

It's a Do-It-For-Me product! Using solvent-based paints like Boysen Automotive Lacquer tends to be messier and needs a certain technical skill to apply correctly.

How should you apply Boysen Automotive Lacquer?

You can apply Boysen Automotive Lacquer using a paint spray gun. You can also use a natural hair brush for tight spots. Keep in mind that spray painting is a painting technique that requires a certain level of expertise, so it's best to leave it to the hands of experienced painters.
