Anybody know how many mils thick a coat of 2lb cut shellac is? I have a situation where I need to build up finish on top of an inlay which is held together with tape that’s 1.9 mils thick. Once in place, the tape will be removed, leaving the inlay 1.9 mils below the surrounding surface. I don’t want to sand the surrounding area because it’s been stained. I’m trying to figure out if I can make up the difference by putting extra coats on the inlay before shellacing the rest.
