Polyurethane over shellac?


Would I run into trouble applying either oil or latex based polyurethane over shellac?

Thanks... Chuck

It depends if it is a de-waxed shellac or not.
De-waxed would provide a good base for polyurethane.
Regular shellac will most likely cause adhesion problems.

the shellac is only acting as a sealer. It could be water or oil based. Best to use oil with oil and water with water.
