I have used quite a bit of this. I’m not big on using different finishes (because I’m not good at finishing) and I like Zinsser because it works good for me. I just don’t have the problems with it that I do with other finishes. If I do make a boo boo though, this easily sands down so I can fix it.
I am not quite sure which is which however. I have used the clear shellac and the amber. Now all I will use is the clear. The one time I accidentally picked up the amber at the store, the results were not what I expected.

You are right about sanding sealer. I use it by the gallon. I find it is important to get lots of air around it after you apply it so it will dry evenly. I found it loads sandpaper pretty fast especialy if it is not completly dry. I have a 25 X 60 wide belt sander and I use a loaded 180 or 220 belt to polish all flat sanding sealer surfaces and it is smooth. Curved surfaces I use a loaded hand buffer. Another Idea I like is I keep the same brush in a tall cottage container with a slit in the lid with 1/3 alcahol, 1/3 ammonia and 1/3 water. I shake it out and replace it in the container after use. The brush is 2 years old.

ANY FIRST COAT YOU PUT ON BARE WOOD IS THE SEAL COAT.
Water base poly, varnish, lacquer, shellac, etc.

Shellac is a problem solving finish. Thats why we use it always.

THAT IS CORRECT But regular shellac, and the dewaxed shellac, are only similar.
Dewaxed shellac, is much more versatile

Dewaxed shellac is so great to use that the price is going up 50%
Due to high demands.

Have your say...
