Hello, I'm making outdoor sign with Artminds outdoor water based paint. Can I protect it with helmsman oil urethane? Thanks

Asked by: Fifa22
I'm not sure if you can mix oil-based and water-based products. But just call Lowes, and they'll be able to advise you.

Is it "non-yellowing"?? I am having a tough time finding an exterior product that is non-yellowing.

Asked by: TReno
Hello. Yes, our Helmsman Spar Urethane products will yellow. However it is a crystal clear finish that is ideal for use over light-colored woods and stains. We do not offer an exterior non-yellowing product, and our exterior products are not recommended for use over paint. Regards, Minwax Customer Support

Varnish is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 83.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great form many purposes Helmsman Minwax is great for more purposes than you might think. Yes, it has great, smooth coverage used full strength. But what I did was dilute 50/50 with mineral spirits and put on saltwater damaged wood. You see, the salt gets into the wood and soaks up moisture from the atmosphere. Then it dries out when it's hot and soaks it up again when it rains. This causes the wood to puff up like a sponge and slough off. To stop this from happening, you scrape off the loose fibers and apply the 50/50 solution. Once several coats soak in you can apply any oil based paint and the damage will not keep re-occuring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minwax Helmsman I have been using this product for many years. Every spring I make Adirondack Chairs out of hardwood from my property. My customers have been very pleased with my product and a significant contributor to this is the finish which is Minwax Helmsman.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect finish with good prep! I used 3 coats on a oak porch swing and got a flawless finish. Just follow the directions and allow time for the first coat to fully dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes like new I like to refinish older pieces of furniture, nothing elaborate, and make it look like it just came from the woodworker's shop. This Helmsman product is easy to use, cleans up quickly and ads that finishing touch to my projects [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
