ColorTone Shellac

Traditional instrument sealer/finish. ColorTone® shellac is a super pale platinum blonde supplied in dewaxed flakes for sealing, finishing and touchups.

It's compatible with most finishes and rubs out easily.

Dissolve shellac in Behkol solvent or denatured alcohol, in the amount you need for the job—no wasted finish or shelf life problems.

ColorTone® Shellac makes an excellent sealer over stains and under lacquer (helps keep fisheye-causing contaminates out of topcoats, too) and is useful for finish repairs and touchups. When the dry flakes are dissolved in alcohol the resulting shellac can be brushed, wiped on, French polished (using mineral oil as a lubricant), or sprayed in thin coats. Shellac has good clarity and compatibility with most finishes, is easy to rub out, and easy to repair with additional shellac.

Flakes dissolve well and go on smoothly and very clear so does not distort or change the colours of the inlays. Will use more.
