I usually go with a 1# cut on sealing when using Zinsser Seal Coat. Add 1/2 to 1/2 DNA.
Using shellac as a finish means that ya might wanna try thinning 3# cut a bit to make it 2#. 2 parts shellac to 1 part DNA. Will make it an easier shellac that will flow better.
Amber will give ya a much “warmer” color. Be sure to test on light colored woods before you commit to a final finish ‘cause color is a VERY subjective issue.
Are ya gonna spray or brush?
