Antique solid finish is a solid color (opaque color) finish with the antique looked (old looked). To make the antique solid finishing, instead of the uses of glaze and stain, antique impression is also obtained by highlight (reducing of color) on the base coat or paint coat. This finish is principally similar with the rubbed of finish, but it is done with different way. Another process which is easier and more secure is by using special materials that make the base coat layer does not stick to the surface. It is the antique solid color which still shows the grain and pore pattern to produce a lively finishing looked.
Merillat's specially formulated hi-solids wood sealer is pressure applied, penetrating all exposed wood surfaces for uniform protection.
Sealed product is placed in specially designed high-temperature ovens to ensure a complete, thorough cure. All surfaces are again hand-sanded, providing a smooth, consistent surface to accept topcoat. An environmentally safe catalyzed topcoat, specially formulated to include the dual combination of clear resin chemistry and ultraviolet screen inhibitors, is applied.
Top coated product is then cured in a 150-degree oven, creating a baked-on, full bodied, smooth surface, comparable to high-baked finishes generally applied to automobiles and major household appliances.
Before shipping, each cabinet is inspected and polished, assuring a finished product of the quality that Merillat expects and our customers demand. The use of latex paint in the finishing for furniture is usually used in conjunction with other wood finishing materials. The latex paint is actually purposed to be used as wall paint, so it characters and qualities made are more suitable for the application on the wall, not for wood or wood products. Interior Spray Finishing showcase a selection of our professionally spray painted and finished Office Furniture. Antique solid color would produce furniture with a paint finish, but with the impression that the furniture has been made and used for long time, old, damaged, dirty looked. With a proper highlight techniques then we get an antic performance finishing with more variation. The solid color of the base coat or paint is highlighted by rubbed with sandpaper steel wool on some part.
All surfaces are progressively sanded smooth, starting with #120 grit sandpaper, and finishing with #220 grit sandpaper. This custom finish provides maximum resistance to scuffing, dents, moisture, UV fade and household chemicals or agents.


Although it is named as latex paint, but these finishing material does not contain latex in the mixture. The material that was not designed to be applied on wood substrates make it rather difficult to be used on wood product.
Latex paint is mostly used to make the special finishing effects and the desired color and then followed with the application of wood finishing materials such as base coat, clear coating or glaze.
Like the other water based materials, this material is also very sensitive to the weather conditions, especially air temperature and humidity. Each brand and type of latex paint can produce effects that could be very different when it is used in the wood finishing. Antique white finish may be the most popular finish for this finish, even  though we can make any color by playing with the stain. Base coat layer is removed using a wet cloth with paint thinner, the base coat will wipe off according to the wiping clothe.
After the base coat layer is dry, then it can be chipped off by a little scrubbing with sandpaper or scotch brite. A toner or thin base coat is used to make opaque color, but still keep the grain and pores texture opened. This material is a paint made from acrylic resin or urethane resin that is mixed with mixture of pigment as its main ingredients. There are many finishing materials that are designed for wood finishing with better suited to the industrial wood furniture finishing are available.
The latex paint combined with glaze will result in an interesting and dramatic antique finishing looked. In the hot and dry weather it may dry quickly, but in the wet and humid air, it requires long time for drying. Latex paint with more expensive price and considered as material with better quality may not be suitable for our wood finishing needs. As well as finishing antic transparent, antique solid also use antique effects such as physical distress and the application of stain and glaze to give the antique and damaged impression. The highlight of the base coat color is of course must be done correctly because it will mainly responsible to the appearance of the finish produced. This technique will produce a softer looked highlight, but relatively more difficult in application.
For the water base base coat or latex paint, the peeling can be done by burning the base coat. This process is safer and faster since it work for thinner base coat, but the application of base coat has to be done by spray.


This process is usually followed by the application of glaze with contrasting color to fill into the pores and grain. The colors produced by the latex paint is actually can be easily generated with the wood finishing materials such as base coat, enamel or toners. So make sure that we provide enough time to let the latex paint to dry especially if it is layered with quite high thickness. Therefore, the proper selection is very important to find the latex paint that best suits to the desired effect and color. Highlight in the proper way will be able to produce a natural appearance and attractive finish, but the wrong highlight will produce a strange appearance.
Currently the latex paint is available in a variety of brands, and each providing a variety of colors, qualities and properties. The uses of latex paint on wood finishing is mainly in the wood furniture finishing process that requires special effects that are easier to be obtained with this paint. This highlights techniques require to be done more carefully because the finish coat will be more easily drawn, resulted in paint too much erased. This technique should be done carefully, first is to produce desired effects and also because the use of fire in the finishing process is a dangerous thing. The latex paint is especially made for decorative purposes on a wall since that the color uniqueness and variation is very important thing in this business. This material can easily be layered according to the required thickness, can be easily removed or applied with specific techniques to produce some special effects. This paint also can be applied using special tools such as sponges, brushes, cloths and even other equipment such as paper and comb if necessary. This paint can be removed by wash off with water quite easily, or be added on if necessary. Since it is thicker and has stronger binder then glaze,  this paint can be applied on and formed to produce the special glaze effect with a thicker layer.
The latex paint can  be used to produce texture effects with a variety forms and models. This paint  also has advantage to be applied on wood surface without layered with clear coating on it if needed.
