The temperature is in the low 60s. Humidity is even lower. And it may be that timing is everything because I need to apply a few coats of shellac on a Mission desk I’m completing. And to beat all, my Zinsser shellac was as fresh as I’ve been able to wrap my hands around in a long time, so dry times were short. Ah! The heavens above are smiling on me.
It took me all of 1 hour and 5 minutes to complete three layers of shellac on the desk base and top. That included changing my spraying setup, too.
Bad With The Good
The bad news is that now that I have the shop work done, I get to spend the rest of the day in front of my computer knocking out the text and tweaking photos. At least the windows are open.
