    He could always order the flacks or buttons and then mix his own as needed. Shellac has a very short shelf life. I'll look for a vender.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Larry, Dave thanks a lot.

    I think I'd rather order flakes, than prepared shellac, for the same shipping cost I will have more quantity, and preparing shellac is not so difficult.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    BTW Dave, do you think that I should order this one?
    PLATINA
    Dewaxed

    PLATINUM BLONDE SHELLAC
    Extra Light, SUPER PALE,
    CRYSTALLINE CLEAR Transparent

    Is it different from what is described a white shellac?
    Best regards,
    Toni

    what he is after jonathan is to get the wood as natural looking as possible without the amber effects of many finishes..

    Wow thanks Dave. I just learned a ton of stuff i did not know. Just shows what Home depot does not do for your education.

    I did not realize there were so many kinds and always thought shellac was clear.
    cheers
