Fast, easy sealer and finish
An old favorite finish, now in an easy aerosol. Ideal for locking in stain colors before the topcoat.
We recommend Zinsser® Bulls Eye® Shellac as a clear sealer under lacquer and most other topcoats. Shellac bonds well to unfinished or stained wood—and other finishes bond well to shellac.
For touchups and refinishing
Shellac is very compatible with other finishes, and it contains no wax. It's a great for repair and refinishing. Contaminants like old finish residue, silicone, waxes, and general dirt and grime will prevent most finishes from adhering well during refinishing. Sealing the surface with shellac will ensure that any contaminants present won't interfere with the new finish.
A complete finish
Shellac makes a good finish on its own, as both sealer and topcoat. It enhances the grain on guitars, mandolins, banjos or fiddles. It doesn't turn yellow or darken with age.
Build your finish with multiple thin coats, as you do with lacquer. In dry weather, coats are dry to the touch in as little as 15 minutes.
Nontoxic and all natural. Cleans up with alcohol or mineral spirits.
12 oz. spray can.
