    Applying a Mirror Finish (by hand)

    Were the multiple color coats wet sanded then clear top coats applied then again a wet sanding routine?

    I'm under the impression that if you wet sand your color coat to a matte finish, the clear will bring back the sheen due to light refraction? This was taught to me by an auto painter, on my own truck as he sanded a beautiful black paint job to an almost grey color. After clear? WOW! You don't need many color coats I'm lead to believe, the clear is what gives the color its intensity and sheen. Is this true in your experience?
