I'm working on a picture frame and having problems trying to brush
schellac. I'm using waxy bullseye clear (dated April 2006). I cut it
down to less than 2 lbs.
Previously I padded my shellac and had good results. I thought I had
this shellac stuff figured out, now I feel like a knucklehead.
This time I rubbed out and was not happy with the results, so
reapplied and rubbed out again, still not happy, had dull spots, etc.
In frustration, I stripped all of it off with an alchohol soaked rag.
I think I just put too many coats on too thick, and too fast. Anyone
ever had this happen during thier first attempts?
I just reapplied the first coat, and tried to put it on as thin as
How soon should I wait until the next coat? And after how many coats
should I stop?
