    primer for white lacquer?

    I am new to spray finishing and now want to try white lacquer on some drawers I am building for an existing cabinet. Do I need a primer for this or just go straight with the white lacquer?

    I thought it may be from tilting the gravity gun too far. I just redo the frame and start noticing the drips again. This time it did not get onto the frame and as I experimented to find the drips,...
