Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ArasmusBDraggin Great Product
Excellent product. Used this product for final finish on wood or to seal difficult to stain wood species such as pine or poplar prior to staining or painting for small projects. Spray can is convenient but is not economical for large projects (interior wood trim around doors and windows as an example). Would recommend using liquid product brushed on which is sold in one gallon containers for larger projects.

Spraying shellac is a lot easier than spraying paint - no need to shake the can, there is no agitator inside. The finish comes out nice and even without the "orange peel" effect you sometimes get when using spray paint.
2 Notes: after speaking to the folks at Zinser I learned that the spray shellac is "de-waxed" so that this is the right base layer if you are going to put anything on top of the shellac. Also, the shellac on its own is a glossy finish.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cmhanger68 For a better finish, SHELLAC IT!!!
Followed some Youtube advice and had to use this product (Silicone contamination of the surface) to enable the stain to adhere evenly to the top of a a nightstand. Sprayed two coats of shellac, sanded with 0000 steel wool in between then stained. The finish came out better than the rest of the other pieces of the bedroohm set! I wish I had known this before, I would have shellacked the entire set before staining!!!

In addition to is intended use, I use it on cracked or crumbling plaster before applying a little mud and tape. I also apply a quick coat or two over a ceiling stain so there will be very little bleed-though = its faster than Zinzer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sternb I use this as a seal coat prior to staining pine or other woods prone to blotching. It is a dewaxed shellac.
This product is actually a dewaxed shellac. It is the best thing I have found for a seal coat prior to staining pine or other woods prone to blotching.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Egret Great finish in a hurry.
Needed a quick finish on a cherry stool. Shop temperature about 45 degrees. Shellac will dry at low temps. I would have brushed shellac if I had more time, it would be cheaper but more time consuming.Hit it with 0000 steel wool between coats, clean with tac rag. Paste wax top if someone will be setting a drink glass on it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CrackedPotBowls Key to finishing my bowls.
I use the Shellac from Zinsser on nearly every piece I turn on my lathe. It is an important step in the sanding and finishing process to stop tear out in the end grain sections of hard woods like this piece of Osage Orange. I also use it to close the open pores in soft woods like Holly, Pine and Aspen.
