I think a better option would be to use a Watco finish already tinted, or you could just dye (no shellac needed. The use of shellac is to seal the dye from coming in contact with something that will re-dissolve it….the Antique Finish shouldn’t do that. It’s mostly a waterborne finish issue. But to me te best approach would be to go with what you have, after all it will darken over time….and probably get darker than you want (no way around that).
