Can i apply this on too of one coat of poly on pine?

I have pine moulding, that i put one coat of poly on, can i use this on too of poly to get molding alittle darker? Just like the finish better?
Asked by: Scott
You can, Scott! Rust-Oleum Zinsser Amber Shellac can be applied over polyurethane. We do recommend lightly sanding the polyurethane with 180 or 220 grit sandpaper prior to application of the shellac. This will give you a warmer color on the surface and may be what you're looking for.

When applying multiple coats what is needed to be done between coats?

Asked by: Magicwand
You've come to the right place! Several light coats should be applied of Rust-Oleum Zinsser Shellac Finish and Sealer with a brush, pad or lint-free wiping cloth. Let the first coat dry for 1 hour before sanding with 220 grit or finer sandpaper. Allow any subsequent coats to dry at least 1 hour before sanding lightly and recoating.

1 qt. Amber Shellac Traditional Finish and Sealer is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my life!!!! I bought crown moulding and corners for my entire house. Needed to match the existing woodwork. Mixed 2 colors of stain and it wasn't right. Needed more red. Added a very light coat of red color on top of my mix. Much better but not perfect. My handy man told me to just paint it white. I held a practice piece of pine next to my woodwork and it needed some yellow of all things. I came across this and thought maybe it would be my answer. OMG!!!! This was exactly what I needed for my project. The amber colored shellac saved me. My pine boards are a very close match. I am happy that I found this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consistant quality I build reproduction colonial benches and use this to both highlight the grain, and give the deep color to the stains that give them age.. I usually apply 2 - 3 coats, buffing each down to produce a soft sheen, then finish them with mulitple coats of a quality paste wax.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Easy to apply and fast to dry, just make sure you have all of your tools (high grade brush or lint free rags) on hand and be ready to apply as this product does indeed dry quickly. I used this product to complete the wood interior of a 1958 VW bus and the finish/shade was dead on to an original piece I had on hand as a guide. Very happy with the results!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect match for the doors and trim in my 1959 home This is a great product. I am restoring my home and want the original look. It dries fast and is alcohol based so there isn't a lot of odor lingering. A word of caution do not smoke while you are applying this finish and have proper ventilation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Amber Excellent product. When refinishing old wood floors that have that aged yellow amber you love. Use Zinsser Bulls eye 1-2-3 Amber to get that look back or to match to an existing aged floor that ambered naturally over time. Hasn't failed me yet, and I'm a wood flooring installation and refinishing professional

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Matches vintage finishes. I have used this product for several antique doors that originally had a shellac finish. I started by using a scotchbrite green nylon scrubby and alcohol to clean the original finish and re-distribute the finish. Then followed up with 2 coats of fresh Amber shellac.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this product, it will ruin your furniture Do not buy this product, it will ruin your furniture, it runs leaving ugly marks, I have a good experience with min-wax and decided to give AMBER SHELLAC TRADITIONAL FINISH AND SEALER a try because of the color , The worse mistake !!!!! Do not by this product.
