Topic tags/keywords: question

I am working on my first project where the table top will have a void. I plan to fill it with an epoxy-type product but I want a shellac finish. Will shellac adhere to epoxy?

Shellac will bond to any clean cured surface, and any finish can be put over shellac.

Julian is right shellac is what you use when you want to layer dissimilar finishes together . No problem with the
epoxy
