    Zinnser used to have de-waxed available in the can but I haven't seen it for a long time. It's not that hard to mix up your own with the flakes.

    Used sealing inside of my ukes,
    with acrylic vernish for canvas painting.
    But not the backside top.
    Love to think that sound waves rebound on sides et back to go faster to the top ...
    Don't smile.
    Think also that sealant secure gluing bars.
    And it's cool to see sealant by the sound hole ...
    Don't smile again ...

    I don't shellac the inside of any of my instruments. 2 coats of tong oil (wipe on and wipe off) is great for sealing the inside. It brings out the color of the wood and works as a great vapor barrier and protectant. But most of all it dries clean.... No shellac film. I also use it on the outside of my soft wood creations (bass wood, cypress, or butter nut) to stand up the hairs prior to the final sanding.
