Shellac?
Dec 23rd, 2007 at 2:24am
 
Does anyone use shellac for their finishing work?  It dries pretty fast.  Can you use shellac and poly/varnish together, and would you for any reason?

You can use shellac as a sealer coat under poly but you can just use a thinned down coat of poly as a sealer also.

Half of the friction polishes that are on the market are shellac based. The other half is lacquer based.

The great thing about shellac is it can go under or over every type of finish.

Lac-Lac?

I've heard it done, but I have no idea about the results.

I also heard people mixing shellac and ploy. I've heard good results are capable, but I have never tried it myself.
