  • pine wood, shellac, latex paint

    for my next project, I am making picture frames of spf, spruce, pine, fir, that is what the sell at lumber yards like lowes.
    I purchased some zinssers shellac to use as a primer sealer.
    and finish with old village flat latex paint.
    Is there any problems with the finish? Should it work good? thanks for any replies dan

    That will stand up for indoor use quite fine. The shellac will seal the end grains so that they will not act like a sponge when you paint.

          I don't know anything about the paint, but using shellac as a sealer on pine is a good idea. It will help keep the pitch from bleeding through the paint.
