I’ve been meaning to ask this question for some time now. Can somebody pleas tell me what dewaxed shellac is? I know, I know, it’s shellac from which the wax has been removed. But what are the characteristics of both kinds, and when does one use one instead of the other, and why.
I’ve also read that you can dewax your own shellac. If true, how is this done.
Also what does #1 cut or #2 cut mean? Would that be one pound (or two) of flakes to a gallon of alcohol?
Thanks in advance.
