I have a problem with shellac that I need help with. I have built a Grandfather Clock out of Black Walnut and is finished with shellac. This is my first time using shellac and it is beautiful. I tried to fill the grain and thought it was filled with the oil and pumice method. It seemed to be filled but after 12 to 15 coats of shellac I can still see some open grain.
Is it OK to use a lacquer sanding sealer at this time and sand off well then recoating with a couple more coats of shellac?
I’m so tired of sanding and recoating.
