This cropped up when I was looking for BIN, thought I would give it a try. Same spec as BIN - pigmented shellac but slightly off-white

It is thinner and has a longer open time than BIN so goes on a lot easier and a much smoother finish. Overcoat in 55 minutes, so only 10 minutes longer than BIN and the best bit is its only £20/2.5L opposed to £40 plus. Used it on two different jobs with excellent results.

On the subject, brushes for BIN have been mentioned numerous times. I have found that putting the brush in plastic bag works a treat, just change the bag every time its used. My current BIN brush has not been cleaned in meths for at least 6 months and still comes out ready to go every time. Consequently I use a Purdy, why compromise on the finish using than a chuck & throw?

By far the best adhesion shellac primer on the market is Blockade made by Smith and Rodgers and can be purchased from Topdec.
Goes on easier and has a lot less smell.

Thanks but it's actually £25 one you add delivery. Unless I can buy it locally but then it will probably be more expensive.

Is that the Fossa adhesion primer from decorating direct - it is a good price and you have used it twice with no problems might have to order some tins in
Thanks for the heads up
