I'd like to find a product that I can spray in several coats and sand back to grain fill and seal in one step. Top coat will be nitro in opaque colors. Bodies are alder and swamp ash.

Gemini Coatings made Fullerplast for a while, but have since discontinued it. They have a new product that took it's place called Gem Clear that is a high solids conversion varnish. I've attached the PDS and was hoping someone with a bit more wisdom could take a look at it tell me if this would suit my purposes. I spoke with their tech support and he assured me it would, but he obviously doesn't have any experience building instruments.

I would go with Zinzeer Seal Coat Shellac, if you have a spray gun. Brush it on is an option. Can bought at big box stores

Or, nitro sanding sealer that has been used for years with great success. One can would work for alder if prepped properly
