Priory Polishes Shellac Sanding Sealer 1 Litre is used to seal wood to provide an excellent basecoat and barrier between the first coat and the next layer of French polish. It is also used to seal wood stain on the timber. Our Shellac Sanding sealer is produced from pure shellac and alcohol with a special additive included to allow it to sand much easier and smoother than other Shellac polishes, once dry. This shellac based product has a cloudy appearance from the fine powder that is added, but it is completely transparent when applied. Priory Polishes Shellac Sanding Sealer helps to fill the grain, smoothing the surface quicker than using plain Shellac polish. Sanding sealer is applied with a special soft hair polishing brush in the same direction of the grain of the wood.
Application Priory Polishes Shellac Sanding Sealer
Ensure the wood that is going to be sealed is clean, dry and free from dust and dirt etc. You may want to fill any imperfections or small chips using our Wax Filler Sticks before use. Sand the surface to a smooth finish.
If needed, stain your timber to the suitable shade required.
Shake the Shellac Sanding Sealer well before use as the additive will settle in the bottom.
Apply in a warm dry atmosphere and always in the direction of the grain with a soft hair polishing brush. You can de-nib between coats if necessary but allow drying thoroughly between coats.
Finish using either our Shellac French Polish on darker woods or our Transparent Polish on lighter woods. If you are looking for a more satin finish just wax using our Finishing Bees Wax Furniture Polish.
