I gave up on Zinnser’s canned shellacs a few years ago after a few attempts to use them. It didn’t adhere well. So, I switched to mixing my own shellac.
Off and on, I’ve tried their spray cans of clear shellac. I just tried using the spray shellac again on one of Paul’s little “curved in both direction” planes thinking it would be quick and easy. What a mess. It didn’t atomize well and left a heavily pebbled surface. I’ve played with different distances for spraying and played with making the application lighter and heavier, but it just won’t lay out. This has been true of all of the 4 or so cans I’ve every played with.
So, I’m wondering: Has anyone had a positive experience with ANY Zinnser shellac products? I might have had one good outcome with their Sealcoat, but that’s not a top coat. I’ve also used their BIN primer in a couple of extreme house-painting circumstances and had a good outcome. But for getting a finish coat of shellac on wood…..it’s stunk every single time.
