As a proponent of shellac finishes, I was impressed with Royal Lac the first time I used it. It brushed well and was very easy to apply with a pad. The finish it produces is heat and alcohol resistant.
To test a Royal Lac finish I let it sit a for a few weeks, poured denatured alcohol on the surface and let it sit for a couple of minutes. When I wiped it clean, there was no discernible damage to the finish.
I’m impressed and look forward to working with it.
