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.

I purchased the Zinsser Amber Shellac for a project. I made a hand rail from Black Walnut for my wife. I sprayed several layers of Shellac. It came out great.

First time using shellac. Good stuff will buy again. Product seemed to be within date as it dried quickly. I heard that you need to be careful because shellac can go bad and will remain sticky and not dry properly. Happy with the amber tint which was not available at other retailers.

    Been using this product for years. It always performs just fine. Clean up with denatured alcohol or ammonia and water. Can even just use a good industrial-strength soap. Dilute with alcohol. Rub out with 220 or even 320 between coats. Works especially well on resided or weathered lumber.

    Good product and works well. I would definitely buy it again. Only downside is drips and over lapping coats at times cause’s darker and lighter areas that need some sanding and reapplying to match. Be patient!

    I was disappointed at the coverage with this. I used it on a bandsaw box about 10X15 inches, and it took almost the entire can before I had an adequate finish on the outside and drawers. (I thinned it and sprayed coats with an HVLP sprayer.) In particular, I was shocked at the extremely high price for just a quart, and for the amount of money it cost me to finish this one small project with it.

    Let's talk about this, Todd! Each quart of Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye Shellac Finish and Sealer has a recommended coverage of 100-150 square feet with a single coat. If the surface is more porous, this will affect the coverage rate. Applying with a sprayer also tends to reduce the coverage rate due to the potential over spray from application.

    We've used this a lot on unfinished oak kitchen cabinets - it protects the wood very well and gives it a beautiful color.
