I just ran across this article by Flexner. He says lacquer retarder can be used to slow the drying time for shellac. Who knew?

I use Sherwin Williams K27 retarder thinner in my lacquer. Any of their stores can order some for you, or if you have a commercial SW store, they almost always stock it. Mohawk offers it too.
