If you have enough finish coats say 3 or more you can use some corn starch on a damp sponge. It is like a really light
cut rubbing compound. You can also spray a light coat of lacquer thinner over that area to level out the finish.
Lacquer cracks when you have some contaminant under your finish or there is moisture in between the coats of finish.
It also will blush if the temp is to cold. I like using pigmented lacquer if i'm going to spray a color finish, It's a 2 part
lacquer which comes with an activator or catalyst you mix in. I like using a cup gun with a number 80 nozzle. Also, I will use a
lacquer primer tinted the same color of my finish instead of sanding sealer. For those of you that spray a lot of lacquer finishes,
You can buy blending solvent which slows down the drying time eliminating a lot of over spray. Just my 02

Have you recently used Silicone spray where you are doing woodwork because that sounds like I once had and I ended up using a different finish. When I want a high gloss colour finish I use a few coats of gloss colour followed by at least two coats of gloss lacquer.
