You have a lot more color options if you go the flake route. I’m a big fan of pre-mixed amber, but that is a personal choice. You may actually need two types of shellac. If you use non-de-waxed shellac for color, you should consider using a coat of de-waxed before the poly to assure good adhesion. I’ve never tried water based poly over non-de-waxed shellac so I’d be a little concerned about adhesion. Perhaps someone else will add their experience.
