Shellac, the last “brittle” finish?
It’s starting to be more apparent every year that we will slowly see our beloved solvent-based finishes disappear in favor of water-based finishes.
I understand the VOC concerns but I still like my Alkyd Varnish and my Acrylic Nitrocellulose Lacquer, but I can see a time in the future when I won’t be able to buy my favorites.
Shellac may be the final frontier for non-water based finishes. Dissolved in alcohol, shellac may be the last survivor of the “brittle” finishes. What do you think??
I’ll be in Denver this weekend (19-21) defending my viewpoint and I can show you three excellent ways to apply shellac. Stop by and say hi. Denver Merchandise Mart, 451 East 58th Ave.
