Water Based Top Coat-Heirloom Traditions


Product Description

Our best selling clear, water based top coat gives your painted finish long lasting durability & scrubility.  Our water based urethane top coat is unique because it is specially formulated to be able to adhere to a waxed surface which makes it different from anything you can pick up at the hardware store.  This means, you can still antique and tone your piece with wax, if that look is desired, but be able to give your painted furniture a durable finish.  If you are not using a colored wax to antique and tone your paint finish, you can skip the wax and go straight to the top coat to save time and product.  Low VOC's, safe to use indoors & safe to use on baby furniture.  

Available in 3 sheens:  Matte (Flat), Satin and Gloss

Each Sheen is available in two sizes:  Pint (16oz) and Quart (32oz)

  1. watch the tutorial! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on May 9th 2017

    I was terrified of doing this last step for my dresser turned vanity; afraid I might mess it up.
    I watched Paula's tutorial on how to apply it with the brush and the damp sponge and followed her easy and simple procedure.
    Easy to do and the finished product looks exactly how I wanted it to.

  2. Water Based Top Coat used for Distressed Effects 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Feb 3rd 2017

    Worked perfectly for my my project. I used it to seal the layer I intended to have show through after distressing. It allowed a clear protective coating over the first layer so that I could remove more of the second layer while not touching that first layer. Giving me a beautiful result! I used it in place of wax or Vaseline. I then used it to protect and seal my finished project. Easy to use, easy to clean up. Great product!

  3. Top Coat 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 2nd 2016

    I used this over chalk painted chair arms and legs. I knew the arms, especially, would need extra protection and I think this will fit the bill. It went on pretty well as soon as I realized I needed to slow down and softly paint it on. Tended to bubble at first, but as I used it and grew accustomed to it, not so much. Sanded between coats (did two coats) and is now very soft and smooth. Will definitely use again.
