While I try not to bad mouth products on here (I'd rather just not mention them) I had to share with my readers the difference between the two of these. I used Krylon Lacquer first and it was not clear or smooth looking. It was foggy and didn't have that even finish that I was looking for at all. I was really disappointed with the results.
I was so upset that I thought I had ruined my tray and all my hard work.
I used my mouse sander and sanded down the clear layer without ruining the zig zag pattern (use a 220 grit sand paper or finer for this) and decided to start over.
This time I tried the Rust-Oleum Clear Lacquer Spray and crossed my fingers.
BINGO, It worked like a charm! Best spray lacquer out there, I will NEVER go back. It gave my tray the even, smooth and CLEAR finish I was looking for. It even looks like a professionally manufactured tray, it's so pretty!
* I know I'm no expert spray painter, but I have done my share of spray painting lately and I would have to say Rust-Oleum Lacquer Clear Spray is the clear winner (no pun intended).
** And NO, they are not paying me to say this or providing me with free spray paint- this is just my opinion.
