I was looking at Zinsser Shellac in a local store so before buying I have couple of questions. One is wax free and the other isn’t. Now to my questions.
1. What is the difference in difference in appearance between the two once applied and which is best to use on walnut, maple and oak or does it matter?
2. I have read at times about cutting shellac with denatured alcohol if I remember correctly. Why cut it and does the Zinsser in a can need to be cut or is it ready to use right out of the can? If it should be cut what is the formula for best results?
3. I like the idea of a natural looking finish for my projects so I presume the clear kind is the way to go as opposed to amber or blonde.
Thanks for any info given.
