OI ran in to a problem on a custom order. I received a black cohiba box that looked perfect. While waiting for parts I sprayed the box with acrylic laquer to protect it. After the clear dried there are smudges and finger prints all over it.

what can I do?

Sand them out with super extra fine sandpaper & recoat, no worries :)

Hi, are the fingerprints on the new lacquer? If so then Brian Qs method is worth a try, or are they on the box paper and were there before you sprayed over them? If the later be careful you don't sand down to the paper and wreck it.

Something a lot the members do is wipe the boxes with a semi-damp cloth before anything, those darker colored boxes are notorious for smudge prints? I have lacquered over smudges before, it’s bothersome, but ornamental trinkets can usually cover those spots?
