Hmmm, I didn’t know it said that on the can, but you can certainly thin it with DNA. I do it all the time. Regular bullseye shellac has wax in it and shouldn’t really be top-coated with anything other than additional shellac. The wax may make topcoats peel.

However, zinsser also makes a product called “Sealcoat” which is just dewaxed shellac (which you can also thin). You can topcoat that with anything. It is ideal for sealing stains and dyes before topcoats.
