  • 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.

            My adhesion test with good duct tape show no problems. I really expect no problems with time. Of course I can not know how time temperature and humidity will effect. I dont think I will finish this way again. I should have just used the zinsser sealer primer.

              It means the wood could be spruce or pine or fir. They just mill whatever comes in and they don't sort by species.

                Picture frames are done and hanging on the wall. I will ask wife to post picture. Hopefuly there will be no problems.
                I could start a new topic but I will try changing this one a little.
                When painting wood projects such as puzzles or children's toys, what type and brand of paint do you like? I am not happy with anything I have used so far. Friday I went to a very large craft show and some of the vendors that did wood working had very nice painted pieces for sale, including scroll saw work. thanks

                  Did you ask them what they used?
