Problems Sealing Painted Counter Tops

I painted my countertops and am having a horrible time with the polyacrylic. It is a high gloss and the waves are terrible. I have put 5 coats on and sand between each coat. Any suggestions?

Ok. Are you using a paint brush or mini foam sponge roller? Sand your surface with the finest of sand paper. Use a tack cloth to clean the surface after sanding. Using only a mini foam sponge roller, apply your polyacrylic. Roll applying pressure evenly, & making sure the final rolls on each pass are all in the same direction

Let it 'cure' for 24 hours before applying a second coat. Follow the same rolling instructions as above. This should give you a smooth, non-wavy, finish. Unfortunately, if you painted the counter top with a brush & not a roller, chances are the waves are in the paint from the brush strokes.

I wish you well with this project & I hope that this will help solve your dilemma. :0)
