Hey TBers, I have been playing with some de-waxed shellac (1.5 lb cut) on a couple projects of mine (basses and general woodworking). I have been having some issues with the shellac, especially when i'm doing a 3rd coat. I used a brush for the 1st coat and a brush for the 2nd. I sanded in-between with 320, lightly, and let it sit until it was more than dry enough to put a 3rd coat on. I am wanting to use a pad for the 3rd coat so that I minimize the potential for brush strokes and little imperfections in the finish and what I'm finding is that it is very difficult to apply the 3rd coat with a pad. It is SOOO sticky and very frustrating... does anyone have a similar experience? This has happened on 3 different occasions... so something in my process must be off. Any suggestions appreciated!
