Pigmented CV touch up9/21
Just got a call that the glass company damaged a vanity I installed a month back. nickle sized dent/ that broke through the finish and shows raw wood.
Previous attempts to fill and spot spray pigmented CV have been less that stellar. If I tape off the area, the thickness doesn't blend in. If I spray with an airbrush, I get over spray and sheen variation.
Because the vanity is now has tile and marble in place, I can't get it out and take it back to the shop. I don't want to attempt to tape off the room and respray the entire face frame (inset doors).
Anyone have tips on this repair. It's finished in SW CV low gloss. Color matched Dove White.
You're going to probably have to do exactly what you don't want to do.
once again, I agree with Leo. mask off and spray the face-frame your wasting your time doing anything less. A good gravity touch-up gun is the ideal tool. a couple of spot sprays on the affected area to get some build, let dry until it will powder up. sand to smooth with 320 then spray a even thinned coat.
those are tough repairs with cv because it always wants to wrinkle around edges of a break through once it has been re-wetted with finish...
If you think that your spot repair or spray-over is going to wrinkle anound the edges of the damage then use thin CA glue over the damaged area. Don't hit that with the CA glue activator. Use the CA glue as a barrier coating, a spot seal. Spread it with your finger. Wait for it to cure and then sand it so that it has no texture itself. Then, you are ready for your topcoat(s).
