Gee! Just about everything! It’s reasonably priced. There are a kazillion (sorry, Steve) manufacturers, so, if you have a favorite brand, you can choose it. It’s relatively non-toxic, and you can even purchase water-based wipe-on polyurethane, if you like. Equipment needs are minimal. No air compressor. No airless sprayer. No fancy brushes. All the gear you need is a metal spring binder clip and some old T-shirt material. If you’re not saving your old T-shirts, you should begin to. You can click this link to read about how I do it.
When I’m done, I unroll the fabric, lay it on the rim of the trash can to cure, and throw it out a few days later, once it is totally dry.
Now, I know there are advantages to other methods and other products, and this month we’d like to know what your favorites are. Give us your vote and leave us a comment, too.
