A clear easily sanded sealer, containing a high proportion of shellac. Slower drying than cellulose it is easier to apply to large areas, not such a problem to keep a wet edge. More suited to cabinetmaking, it also has special additives to prevent the shellac forming a hard lump in the bottom of the bottle. Use to seal prior to French polishing or applying fine paste wax.

Good but beware shelf lifeExcellent, versatile, easy-to-use product when fresh but has a limited shelf-life which is not specified. Neither is there a manufacturing date or lot number on the container - Chestnut/Axminster please note! I've had a pot which lasted three years and one which went off in 9 months. Best advice is, don't buy more than you need for immediate use (easier said than done).
