I don’t finish much with shellac but I use it for a seal coat under a lot of finishes. When I use Zinnsser seal coat I cut it 1 to 1 with alcohol and apply it with a pad. I do the same if I’m doing a full finish with shellac I just don’t finish anything vary big with shellac. On small areas if I get laps I let it dry and quickly wipe over it with a pad and just alcohol. You have to wipe it quickly and you don’t want the pad dripping, just moist. The pad is a lint free rag balled up and rapped by another lint free rag.
