  • Question for Rolf

    Rolf,

    A few years ago you told me about using Zinser seal coat and denatured alcohol. You said you mixed the two 50/50 and then dipped the project into this mixture. I found the Zinser seal coat yesterday at our new Ace Hardware here in town. What type of container do you use to put this mixture in? After you've dipped it then what? Do you hang it up to dry? Do you let it drip back into what ever container you used to hold the mixture? How do you store the 50/50 mix when you're done?

    I use plastic mixing containers with a lid. The alcohol mixture absorbs water and will cause the can to rust out over time. I pour the mix into a plastic food tray, like what you get with chinese food. Dip my pieces and then shake off the excess by tapping it on a piece of cardboard. Hang to dry. It does raise the grain a bit so I gently hit it with a 240 MAC mop.

      Not sure why but I can't start a new post or private message so I'm going to try and make contact this way. I need to make three candy dishes for Christmas. I am making the one that Steve Good had on his site a few weeks ago. I've started dipping everything like mentioned above. If I let this dry for a few days and then spray with Shellac will this be food safe? and if so how long will it take to dry and cure? Dan

        Shellac is actually used in some candy. Once cured it is food safe. Here are a few other suggestions:

          Like Scott said, Shellac is food safe.
