Hey all, I'm working on finishing my second pinecaster body! First one I did a solid color with auto paint, this one I'm wanting to do more of a natural/ natural amber finish. I want to do as easy/ forgiving/ non-toxic a finish as possible, and from everything I read thought shellac would be a great choice. So I picked up some spray can Bullseye clear shellac. I love the way it's making the grain "pop," but after several coats I'm getting horrible run. I'm definitely a novice at finishing and my technique certainly needs some practice, but my first project didn't give me anywhere near this amount of trouble. I've tried sanding the runs out several times, but wind up taking off a lot of the coat by the time I get it smooth. Any thoughts on how to proceed? Am I better to just take er back to square one with some DA and start again? Jump to a wipe-on approach? Ditch shellac all together? Unfortunately, I don't have the equipment or budget to spend money on quality shellac flakes, which ultimately would require me to buy an HVLP spray gun and compressor big enough to run it. Knowing there are disparities in quality between what a spray can and a HVLP gun can achieve, I hoped I'd be able to get a least a decent finish out the Bullseye spray stuff. I also don't have a good set up (or honestly strong desire) to deal with super toxic finishes like nitro. Thanks in advance for the input everyone, ya'll are the most helpful lot anywhere on the interwebz!
