I'm wanting a bit more color to a neck I used danish oil, so I got some Zinser amber shellac and preval spray bottle. But, I was hoping to rub it in, over using the spray. Some say the cloth is easy and some say spraying is easier. How hard is it to just use a folded cloth? I read do long swipes and it's fine. It's a maple neck so I'll be doing the fretboard too. Also, I guess I need to mix with denatured alcohol, could I use this paint thinner instead? Most everyone seems to use the denat. alcohol, kind've worries me as it's got so much toxins in it. I don't want that on my hands when I'm playing the neck.
