Taklon fiber makes an amazing shellac brush. A little pricey but IMHO worth it.
The material flows out of the brush so evenly, it really does nice work. And I
don't consider myself very tallented with a brush.

Either works, but synthetic is better. I use cheap Taklon brushes and
keep one for each grade / colour of shellac. I don't clean them
afterwards, just wipe them off and then re-soften them in meths before
use. I have used expensive ones, but the cheapies are just as good -
synthetic bristles don't shed. 3/4" filberts are about the best size
I've not found a hake that worked with shellac. It's a nice idea, but
the bristles were too soft.
Did you use short bristle Hake? I've never owned a goat hair brush but I
noticed they have two styles, long and short.
I was getting "glass" results from squirrel using a 1 lb cut. No brush marks on
overlaps, I worked quickly. My feeling is the lighter the cut, the softer the
brush can be. I'll get some taklon wash brushes and try them.
