Liberon Blonde Dewaxed Shellac Flakes produce a stunning golden brown French Polish that is perfectly suited for antique restoration and custom furniture production. The finish dries quickly and has a luxurious feel once rubbed out. Shellac is also 100% natural and non-toxic. Shellac in flake form allows you to mix up only as much as you need in order to minimize waste and maximize shelf life.

Application and Storage:

  • Dewaxed and ready for use.
  • Add 250g of Liberon shellac flakes to 1 liter of methylated spirits and allow the shellac flakes to soak for a minimum of 24 hours or until all the shellac flakes have dissolved.
  • Stir or shake occasionally to help the shellac flakes to dissolve more easily.
  • More shellac flakes or methylated spirits may be added to adjust the strength according to your preference.
  • Store in a cool, dry place.

I was expecting flakes, or leaves, as advertise and pictured. I got granules/seeds. The blonde applied fine. The brown is something to be desired.

If I follow the directions on the package and combine 250g of the flakes with 1 litre of methylated spirit, with is the cut of the resulting mixture - 1 lb, 2 lb, etc.?
Bill L on Feb 19, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I believe it would be a 2 lb cut since 250 grams is 8oz. and a liter is 33 fluid oz. When you plug that information into an imperial conversion chart for mixing shellac flakes it is a 2lb cut.
Anyone know a perfect mixture for spraying the liberon flakes in HVLP?
shawn on Aug 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unless you're shooting a huge built-in or something and want to spray, at a normal mix, it's so easy to apply with a rag or brush the coating goes fast. Reapply within ten minutes or so and keep doing it until you get the surface finish you like. A final quick polish (0000 wool or some sort of rub you like) and presto, beauty! Roy
