Padding it will be fairly easy, but I do like a thinner cut to pad. I usually try to stay close to a 1 1/2# cut, others might be able to work with the thicker cut but shellac is intended to be a very thin finish anyway. I’d thin it, probably 50/50 with DNA. Only thin a pint or so, if you get it too thick, you can add more DNA, if it’s too thin add more shellac.
