Trusted by generations of woodworkers, shellac is a traditional, quick-drying finish that is ideal for antiques and fine furniture. It is durable, non-yellowing and imparts a warm glow to all wood surfaces. Also works great for sealing wood, knots and drywall prior to applying paint. All-natural and non-toxic, this shellac is safe for use with children's toys. Blocks all odors. Amber or Clear.
