Shellac Sanding Sealer
This product is manufactured from Pure Shellac and Alcohol with a special additive included to facilitate sanding when dry. It should be used for sealing wood prior to waxing, but is often used as a finish in its own right, as it dries to a hard, clear film. Sanding Sealer should also be used to seal penetrating Wood Dyes to prevent them bleeding when varnishes containing white spirit are applied.
Shake well before use. Apply in a warm, dry atmosphere. The wood should be clean and smooth and stained, if necessary, before application with Rustins Wood Dyes. Apply liberally with a soft brush or pad and allow to dry. The drying time will be between 1-1½hours, depending upon temperature and humidity.
Rub down lightly with fine glasspaper before applying a second coat. When used as a finish, rub with 00 or 000 steel wool and wax polish, finishing with a soft cloth or yellow duster.
Clean brushes with Methylated Spirits.
