I am finishing an alder bath vanity and am trying to determine my finishing schedule. So far, the base coat color I like is an amber shellac – which also helps me avoid some of the splotching issues common to alder.
I am then planning on some pitch black General Finishes glaze.
my problem is what to use as a topcoat. the shellac specifically says not to use it under polyurethane. So I looked at some lacquer I had and it says the surface must be free of shellac (and other obvious stuff). the glaze is water based, not sure if that matters.
Am I stuck using clear shellac over the glaze for a topcoat? Does having the glaze in between the shellac and topcoat open any other options?
