The prices you estimate should first and foremost cover your project costs, pay you the salary you need for your life, and allow you to roll money forward to cover any expenses your business occurs until the next job comes along (advertising, insurance, shop rental, tool purchases, etc).

  • Reply To: Has anyone used matte Min Wax Polycrylic as a stage floor sealant? October 11, 2021
    I find that the minwax tends to soften over time with repeated moppings, can turn whitish and then takes time to stabilize. I prefer the Rosco Premier Clear for floors, which is tougher but not as flat as I’d like. Modern Masters makes a Dead Flat that is great but expensive.

    This is a huge loss, the Rosco products just aren’t as good here. My local supplier is now out of stock on clear flat. Hoping someone will take this production over!
