.8 seems smaller than a 1.4 mm right? Agreed a 1.4 is what you need for clear and then you still might want to thin it a bit depending on what you want the final result to be.The experience I have with Krystal unthinned is sort of orange peel. Thin it about 25 % and it lays a little flatter but takes more coats. But if you want to do the matte finish at the end it don't matter that much.

I've got to size down a lot of pics and I'll update 2 threads, the last bow that left off at riser accents plus show the horsebow build by the top of the year here directly so you all can see what you help me do nowadays!
I really need to keep up with filing the photos.
