Great product for my "boats".
Worked like a charm. Just shake and lightly coat your workpiece.
My project used wood, glue, and planer from the Bolingbrook Rockler store. So much fun!!!

Woodworking Experience:
Spray Shellac is a winner
Zinsser Clear Spray Shellac is a winner because it is easy to use, pretty much foolproof, and reasonably priced. You can apply shellac to just about anything, and pretty much anything will stick to shellac if you want to apply additional glazes or topcoats.

Would this adhere to a non porous surface like porclein?
Klayer on Nov 30, 2015

Can you use this on wood spoons that will be used to cook?
A shopper on Aug 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: yes, just be sure the shellac is completely cured. shellac dries on the surface almost immmediately, but the curing process can take weeks depending on local humidity conditions. no finish is completely impervious to moisture penetration, especially with high heat, so dont leave the spoon in the cooking pot.
Is shellac waterproof?
A shopper on Apr 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No. Not at all. Water resistant would be the Highest rating it could possibly receive.
Is this a primer?
I've been seeing videos on refinishing furniture. I saw one where they used a Shellac spray as primer before staining, but without stripping away old wood finishand sanding first. Will this product do that?
Esperanza on Jan 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Staining wood requires stripping of all previous finish so the wood is open for staining. Shellac can be used to help control the evenness of staining sometimes.
Could this be used over paint for tables that food are to be served on?
Melody M on Aug 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Shellac is considered a food safe finish. I use shellac as a sealer and a finish coat on many of my projects. Be advised that it is not as durable as many top coats
Can I use it on a wood piece that has previously been waxed? What would be the result?
Lisa C on Apr 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, it will puddle and not adhere. Remove the wax first.
