Shellac

Since some finishing procedures are common between wood and metals, this forum is created for just that. Includes preparation, painting, finishing, etc.

Saan makakabili ng shellac, yung ready to use na at hindi yung flakes? Ano pa ibang pangalan nito? Para kasing wala akong nakikita sa mga usual hardware eh.

Many of us have tried looking for that but could not find any locally. There are, sometimes, old stock, but very rare.

I got flakes from Amazon and had them shipped here.

I asked a hardware store for shellac, pero binigay sa akin shellac varnish na nasa bote tulad nung mumurahing plastic varnish. Ganon ba yung shellac?

Maybe you can pose a picture for us to see.

That is probably not real shellac.

BTW, why do you want shellac? Shellac is very difficult to properly apply. But once done, very rewarding.

Na-curious lang naman ako. Sa pag-repair din kasi ng plaster statuettes, pinapahiran ng shellac yung damaged part bago patungan ng wet plaster.

I never worked with plaster. What is the shellac for? To improve structural strength of the statuette? Wouldn't polyurethane, which is more easily available, also work?

The shellac application I was talking about earlier is by rubbing using alcohol and oil in many layers. A very laborious process.

The shellac just works as a barrier to prevent the water from the new plaster from seeping into the old plaster in the statuette. I used sanding sealer instead.
