Default Finishing a basket.

I have made a picnic basket and have sprayed it with shellac in a rattle can. I like the way it made the wood grain pop but what I don't like is it being so glossy, so can I spray satin lacquer over shellac?

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

rub the glossy out w/ extra fine non-woven pad..

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Sorry, Stick I meant to include a picture. The weaving would be the problem.

Don; i can't speak for shellac, but to the best of my knowledge, in other finishes I use, the only real difference between High gloss and Satin is the addition of 'flatteners' to the formula.

Try a small test piece first but I'd bet the products are identical, except for the addition of the flattener (matting agent).

If it was dewaxed shellac, you can put anything you want without issue.


In woodworking there is always more then one way to accomplish something.

Thanks, Terry it is dewaxed shellac. It's Bullseye Shellac in a can.
