Finishing question#1
  Re: (...)
I am making plaques for Christmas gifts using resawn walnut burl. I have finsihed them with birchwood casey gun stock finish and then took them to be laser engraved with my children's baptismal certificates. Tape was placed over the surface and then lasered through the tape, leaving the tape and black laser marks where engraved. After engraving, I plan on leaving the tape on and spraying gold paint on the surface, filling in the engraves areas.

Question#1. Can I then spray lacquer over the entire surface to preserve the gold, or will there be a reaction between the Birchwood Casey finish and the lacquer? Does it matter if the lacquer is water based or not??
