I have to agree with Jack on this. Based purely on my experience with composites, you need the fibers(paper in this case) to literally be part of the coat. By doing it the way you are, I'm afraid you'll end up with voids (air) under the paper no matter how hard you press. With enough voids, it'll start making a crackling sound every time you walk on it...just like my hated bathroom linoleum. Whoever did that didn't use enough adhesive.
Now, hopefully, by applying a lot of pressure, you worked in enough poly to help underfill the paper, but if you have any left to do, try putting a layer of poly underneath the paper to help fill the voids.
BTW, did you get your idea from ******? Do you still have the source handy?
I haven't made up my mind, nothing could be further from the truth. I'm just stubborn about letting up an idea.
Your point about it being meant as a finish, not as a stand alone product is a good point. It sounds like you are also saying that the thicker it is, the more prone to shear stress it is. That would definately rule it out for areas with movable furniture.
Anyone else try this and love/hate it?
