Arrgghhh I've made a bit of a balls up on the Future, pledge Klear coat !! :(
Any advice on recovery from this as certain bits have frosted white a bit, frosty white tide marks, kind of looks like salt stains.

I think it went on a bit thicker than I had realised ....will I need to sand it back a bit or should I just wait till tomorrow & Klear coat it again ?

just tried rubbing down with turpintine, was just a guess but looks promising so far, seems to have reduced it a bit, for now, will wait till it dries thoroughly

all I can recommend is letting it dry for days and see what happens before you do something else?

Hi Choppa ! If the klear is thick enough that you can see or feel ridges, then don't put any more over it, as Ted has said you can leave it fully harden. Then you can sand the ridges off. if there are no ridges just add more klear and it should just disappear under the fresh coat. This has happened to me before and a second coat sorted it out, but my coats weren't very thick

Hope this helps

Pete

I agree. You must let it dry well. Leave well alone for a few days.
another thin coat should work.

If you think about it the product was originally intended to be put on floor tiles; last thing you want to do is walk on it before it's completely dry.

Did you brush it on, or did you use an airbrush ?

good question about whether it was AB or brush. the next thought that comes to mind? neat or thinned before application? I AB mine and I also thin it before application. Start with a Bob "misty" coat and then a regular coverage coat after waiting a few minutes. probably a hundred different ways to do it??? fingers crossed that it sorts out one way or another!
