Spray-on Polyurethane Over French Polish

Post by samscement »

Hi there,

Anyone know if it's possible to use a spray-on polyurethane finish over French polish? I don't just mean brushed on shellac, but an actual mirror gloss. Will the poly be able to bond to the surface, or is that wishful thinking?

I'm hoping to put something on it to protect it, as it's a coffee table, and the finish might get damaged otherwise. Is there any way to protect what's there without having to sand down the shellac first?

Thoughts?
