Where To Buy Dewaxed Shellac in Northern Virginia


I have looked at various paint stores and BORGs here in NoVa, and no one seems to carry dewaxed shellac, the kind to use as a spit coat before staining pine.
Anyone know of a source here?

Go back to the BORG, or got to WoodCraft and buy the Zinsser Bullseye "sanding sealer" that will be with the shellac. That is between 1# and 1 1/2# (depending on who you believe) dewaxed shellac.

Hope he has better luck than I have. No Borg carries it here. Every other Zinsser product but not this one.

Thanks. Found it at the blue BORG, which is not nearly as close as the orange ones. The orange ones in my area are really poorly stocked, unorganized, dirty picked-over merchandise. If I were a stockholder, I'd be pretty mad about how they manage those stores compared to Lowes.

Zinsser "SealCoat" is dewaxed shellac. According to Zinsser's web site it looks like "Duron Paints & Wall Coverings" would be the best bet in your area.

Don't know of a source in NoVa but in Baltimore we have a local paint store chain named Budeke's that has it. Check out Zinsser's web site or google for Bullseye Sealcoat Zinsser to find their site. I can't remember if they had a dealer locator or if I emailed them to find out who stocked it, but they will answer. In fact, when the product was first released, a company rep (IIRC he was the president or CEO or some upper manager type) even posted about it here on the rec.

Have you tried Woodcraft? (703) 912-6727 6123 Backlick Rd, Springfield
If not there, then in the same shopping center try Fischer Hardware, (703) 451-3700 HTH. - Igor

Buck,
Not sure where in NoVa you are but Woodcraft just opened in Leesburg.
