    try Once Gloss for wood and paintwork, technically MDF is not wood, its just mashed up saw dust held toegther with glue, but it should work........... :confused:

    A true high gloss finish is very hard to achieve. If you want to know how it's done search this sectgion of the forum - the details were posted about 6 to 8 months back (I think)

    I painted MDF last week and got a really glossy finish, i used an undercoat and then professional liquid high gloss finish, it would obviously drip but gives a much better finish.
