    How many coats of future is needed for a good looking seal, and if more than 1 how long should i wait before adding new coats?

    (P.S.) my grammar blows.

    Did you read the Tutorial article on Future? Also, did you search this forum for "Future"? The answers to many of these things and more you'll find, I do believe. If not, come back and let us know :)

    I know. Hehehe. It's really cool, though. HOWEVER, I would enjoy more if there is an indication before hand that the available information has been read beforehand. There's just no need to post what's already been posted.

    As for the number of coats for Future, I'll simply say for me it personally depends on what I think the pieces need. As I've said, I've gotten to where I like to use Future as a thinner of sorts for my acrylics. Essentially the number of coats I use to paint a piece is the number of coats I use of Future. That being said, I'll often times still put a top coat of Future that's really thin.

    Something to note is that while acrylics tend to take only 15-20 to dry fully (read: not cure, but are able to be touched, etc), the Future drags that process out for 6-8 hrs now (since Future takes 8 hrs to fully dry/cure). I hope that helps :)
