Painting with shellac

Can you use Zinsser's bull eye shellac on rusting non-galvanized screws on latex painted outside hinges to stop them from "bleeding" a rusty color?

Painting with shellac

Yes, but I think an oil primer might be better- not as brittle outside, and Shellac does transfer moisture - just a little- .
Try Cover Stain.

Painting with shellac

Unless you remove all the old paint and rust, shellac won't last long. As Brush said, you'll do better with an oil. Better yet would be a rust conversion product. of all, remove the screws and replace with brass, galv, or coated exterior screws.
