This course teaches the art of applying and polishing shellac. Often referred to as »French polish«, it is actually more like an »English polish«. Shellac creates one of the best surfaces on wood and has many advantages:It can be applied by hand, dries quickly, can be repaired and gives the wood a beautiful finish. Using simple techniques and with a little practice, you will learn to master one of the best polishing methods with ease. Sample blockboards are used for practice.
Course content:
  • Correct preparing of the wood surface
  • What is shellac? Types and how to mix them
  • »Filling pores« - traditional methods of filling and dyeing wood pores
  • Making the polishing pad
  • Applying the shellac with brush and polishing pad
  • Fast application system for the shellac
