CrystLac High Gloss - 3 replies
Would this finish add depth to a piece? I plan on spraying it on cherry. I have had a can around, unopened, for a good while. I would like to see depth in cherry that oils bring out.Some have confused it with a grain filler. They make that too. This is the top coat.

Button Lac - 6 replies
I saw some walnut finished with button lac. It looked great. I have heard that the clarity is not great. I know it is waxed and I would want to fill the grain with the shellac. That is spray on a lite coat, sand it back and keep it up until the grain is filled then apply the shellac.Any advice would be appreciated.
