Solving Common Wood Finishing Problems
(Recommended reading for all finishers)
Regardless of your finish of choice, water or solvent based, both modern and
traditional coatings require many of the same considerations for application success.
• Select a recommended finish to meet the project requirements.
• Read The Directions.
Most finishes work best at around 72°F and a humidity of 4o% or less.
• Follow the manufactuers guidelines.
Finish drying and curing depend on temperature, humidity and air flow.
So far there is Not a finish material
that says it will dry faster if you are in a hurry!
Creating a Fine Finish, by brush or spray, requires attention to many factors
including environment, finish material, selection of spray or brush equipment, and more.
Read through this entire document so you can spot finish problems
before or as they arise.
This self help problem solving guide identifies the source and the fix for many issues that can prevent the achievement of a perfect finish.

Dewaxed SUPER PALE PLATINA Shellac
Extra Light toned, (lighter than Platina)
SUPER PALE, Extra Light Toned Platina Shellac,
SUPER PALE Platina (Platinum) Blonde,
is the best shellac variety
if you want to impart the least amount of tone
to woods such as Maple and Spruce.
Shelf Life & Storage of Dewaxed Flake: One Year+, Cool, Dark, Sealed from moisture.
Note: There is Limited Stock of this SPECIAL Production.
1 – Q: Shellac is an old-fashioned, outdated finish.
A: No, Shellac is all natural, organic, child safe.
Shellac has more modern features and ‘green’ benefits than any other wood finish in the world.
2 – Q: Shellac turns ugly and dark as it ages.
A: Shellac is naturally UV-resistant and does not yellow or darken with age.
The dark shellac seen in older homes is a less-refined version that was naturally dark, or was tinted by finishers when dark wood colors were popular in the early 20th century.
3 – Q: Is shellac made from bugs or bug droppings?
A: No, Shellac is a resin secreted from the tree sap by the lac insect to form a cocoon, much like a silk worm.
It takes about 100,000 lac bugs to make 1 lb. of shellac resin.
4 – Q: Does a shellac finish turn white when water touches it?
A: A properly applied shellac finish is remarkably water-resistant and, in most cases, will stay clear after hours of exposure to water, making it a great finish for most interior surfaces, including woodwork, trim, doors, cabinets, paneling, furniture, and for floors, Button Shellac (yes, floors!)
5 – Q: Is Shellac brittle or easily scratched?
A: Shellac is a tough, durable finish that is less brittle than lacquer and is not easily scratched.
The process of making Button shellac yields a tougher resin. Unlike polyurethanes, a damaged shellac finish can be easily touched up or renewed by brushing on another thin coat.
6 – Q: Is Shellac compatible with other finishes?
A: Shellac will adhere tenaciously when applied over almost any other type of clean, wax free, and oil free finish.
(To assure a clean surface, especially on older grimy surfaces, use a wood cleaner like H. Behlen’s De-Waxer 741, to avoid possible stains or damage from water based cleaners.)
To seal wood before applying polyurethane or other finishes, Bulls Eye® SealCoat™ is a shellac-based universal sanding sealer that is 100% wax-free.
For refurbishing a worn finish, a SealCoat makes an excellent transitional coating or bonding coat between an unknown coating and a new topcoat.
NOTE: (Regular shellac may not be compatible as a sealer under certain polyurethanes, as they contain small amounts of natural wax.)
7 – Q: Can I make a Shellac SealCoat?
A: Yes a ‘SealCoat’ is a DEWAXED Shellac Resin dissolved in
Behlen Behkol or a 190 Proof Denatured Alcohol.
With a wide color variety of Dewaxed Shellac Flakes, you can make your own universal sanding sealer in a range of light to deep tones to match your project.
NOT A WOOD FINISH but we are interested in preserving and protecting trees that could become beautiful furniture or wood turning timber. This is why we offer Eco-Orchard Paint used by California Certified Organic Farmer members.
Introducing new Eco-Orchard Paint!
Reflective White Natural Sun Block for Tree Trunks
Fruit growers have long seen a need to protect tree trunks from the scalding sun.
During the heat of the day, trunks can expand, and then contract overnight in the cooler air, sometimes splitting the bark and damaging the tree.
A solution to this is to paint the tree trunks white to reflect the sun.
Sounds easy enough, but organic farmers, in particular, have had a hard time finding the right product to use that will safely comply with the stringent regulations placed on them, and at the same time be durable, long lasting and not wear down when it rains.
Eco-Orchard Paint is a newly formulated,all natural milk paint coating.
Old Fashioned Milk Paint company is happy to announce our Business Partnership with CCOF- California Certified Organic Farmers.
Eco-Orchard Paint provides an effective,
ecologically safe solution for preventing sunscald, not only on organic farms, but for anyone interested in protecting their trees in the safest way possible.
Available in powder form to mix with water.
(Ships via Priority Mail, & no handling or packing fees added)
Eco-Orchard Sun Block Paint available in:
• Pints … 13.95
• Quarts … 20.95
• Gallons … 49.95

Varieties of shellac resin differ primarily in color as well as properties.
The type of tree, climate conditions, the region where harvested, and the time of year harvested all play a role
in determining the different colors and shellac varieties.
Handmade Button Shellac is produced by placing Seedlac into a long narrow cloth bag and heating with a charcoal fire.
One end of the bag is attached to a windless and is gradually twisted.
The heat from the charcoal fire melts the seedlac which is forced through the cloth by pressure.
The molten lac is scraped off and placed onto metal sheets and left to dry.
The making of Lac buttons requires considerable manual skill and long experience.
