deft pulls up the small fibers on the woods surface. After application and drying, sand it. Do this twice to the surface you want to paint. Deft comes in spray or quart. I recommend spray and it can be bought at Home Depot

What type of wood??...mdf..particle...

How large of surface...is it flat...curvy...ect.

Actualy, on any surface larger than a shoebox... you really should use a light coat of fiberglass resin and smooth out ( might need to use a little bondo during prossess, depending on how smooth you lay your glass)....then pretty much just follow like the other guys are saying......sand, filler/primer, sand, paint 3-4 coats, clear coat 5-6 coats, ...I know it seems like a lot of coats,..but thats what you have to do w/ spray-paints to get it to look good. These steps are tried & true for me...I wouldn't tell you anything unless I was confident it works.
Have fun!!!!!!!! :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:
