    Let paint completely dry first - about 24 hours.

    Then apply as many coats of lacquer as it takes to look right - but NO sanding the final coat.

    Don't understand what you mean about pressure though?

    Ah, OK - out of my depth then I was assuming you were using a rattle can.

    your pressure should be around 2 bar,you should leave your base coat until its dryed to a mat finish about an hour or so after last coat also leave 10 to 15 mins between coats of base,if you put to coats of clear on that should be plenty,the glass finish you talk about comes from the way you put the clearcoat on not how many coats hth
