that would be ok for the one part, there would also be one part thinner for the thinning.

Yak:

How does the finish look compared to sanding sealer and buffed? Do you need to sand with finer grits?

I prefer the sanding sealer for a more uniform finish.  not sure how to describe it but I seam to get a nicer feel to the piece.

Larry

to each their own, many prefer the three part finish
