Zinsser Clear Shellac is an alcohol-based solution of lac, a natural resin imported mainly from India, that is available in Clear and Amber tones. Clear Shellac dries transparent with a faint, golden cast that is much lighter than oil-base varnishes, while Zinsser Amber Shellac has a warm, orange cast that gives a rich, antique-look to woodwork. Bulls Eye Shellac has many advantages over other clear finishes: it's easy to use, dries quickly, is non-toxic when dry and cleans up easily with ammonia and water or denatured alcohol. A clear coating for furniture, floors, inside drawers and food cabinets. Shellac has unusually good adhesion to hard-to-grip surfaces. Hold out is exceptional on wood, plywood, and plaster. Recommended for spot sealing knot holes, sap streaks, and refilled areas before refinishing. Can also be used as a barrier coat over a silicone contaminated area. Also seals out smoke and pet odors! Coverage is 400-600 square feet per gallon depending on wood porosity. Apply a with natural bristle brush. Packaged in friction top can. Aerosol available in clear only.
