    Stunning Gil! I may be wrong but the finish looks about as flat and shiny as anything I've ever seen you do. I'm guessing your new shop has an even better spray booth than before.

    Thx. This color is all Shellac based.
    Great stuff for deep warm colors.

    You are wrong (-:
    Same methods and materials as always.
    Spray booth is great though. Very big to include a mixing station and about 20 instruments. The exhaust fan is so strong that is sucks the water out of the shop sinks... We have to plug them shut before it is turned on or open the back loading gate... LOL
