Lacqué and decapé

This workshop is divided into two techniques that complement each other, without lacquering, decapé cannot be done. In this module I will explain the type of paints on the market (acrylic and enamel), the finish that is done after painting (varnish) and pay more attention to lacquered paint and decapé. Lacquering is an opaque painting, in this case done manually, because at industrial level it is done with a pistol with a compressor, in this case using water-based paint. Decapé is a technique of peeling the paint, giving an aged look to the paint, thus letting the wood show through, in this case done manually, by sanding small areas of the furniture until the wood is visible.
