    Directions require a microscope to read. It was good for my job. Application of material and quick dry does not go well together for a layman. Removing mistakes is difficult. Unforgiving.

    Oh no, we can help, Mo. Shellac products like Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye Shellac are formulated a little differently, so the clean-up will differ too. You'll need to use denatured alcohol or household ammonia and water. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5 Rustoleum

    Prepping the wood is important ( to sand away any imperfections); I used a used a 2 inch sponge brush; lightly applied 2 coats (using 4-zero steel wool in between coats); I was very happy with the restored 60yr old closet shelf! Happy shellac customer!

    Thank you for reaching out! While Rust-Oleum Zinsser Bulls Eye Shellac can be used as protective coating on bare wood surfaces, it is not intended for use on exterior surfaces or decks. This product will not hold up to this type of environment.

    This product was easy to apply. The shellac dryed quickly and it didn't have a strong smell.

    Works great but needs to be sold in smaller cans
    I needed to refinish some old dining room chairs. In the summer when the humidity was high, our clothes would stick to the wood. Did some research and found this was a common issue with shellac that has broken down. I confirmed it was shellac with a qtip in rubbing alcohol which dissolved the finish. I cleaned the chairs by scrubbing the old finish off with paper towels and denatured alcohol. Then I applied 2 coats of shellac with an old tshirt. The finish is beautiful and the chairs are no longer sticky. My only complaint was I needed maybe 3 tablespoons total of shellac and had to buy this 1 quart can. Most other stains and finishes are sold in little 8oz cans for small projects; I would have liked to have that option.
