Dewaxed Blond Shellac flakes (2 oz)
Shellac is a natural resin that is and was widely used for perfect furniture finishes. Whether you would like to French polish a piece of furniture or do a few touch-ups, this is the resin we would recommend.
Also available in: Dewaxed Orange, Dewaxed Garnet, and larger (4 oz) quantity.
Makes 2 cups of liquid shellac.
1 oz shellac flakes
1 cup ethanol
Combine dry shellac with ethanol. Stir occasionally for a few hours until dissolved. It is normal for some sediment to occur. Strain through fine cheesecloth before use.
Mixed shellac can be applied with a brush or French polishing pad (made of cheesecloth or other fine cloth). When brushing, do not go over the same area twice until dry.
Finish dries quickly, depending on thickness.
