    Hi Jay

    Yes you can lacquer over water based stains. Let it dry 24 hours and than spray.

    Cheers

    Thanks Roman somebody told me that the piece will turn white if you use oil based lacquer over water based stain. It's always worth a second opinion. Thanks again.

    the stain has to be dry. Im not crazy about water based stains as they raise the grain but if you let them thoroughly dry you shouldnt have any trouble with lacquers.
