Hi Everyone
I am very new here. So please forgive me if I am asking this question in the wrong section this forum.

Can I use Shellac to seal a wooden panel (Birch, MDF, Hardboard) before I Gesso it?

Thanks

I don't know if I would do that personally.. I am not sure the oil paint would adhere well to Varnish or Polyurethane

Thank you.
I have been using Golden GAC 100 to seal my wood panels before applying Gesso. But never used Shellac before. I was just wondering if anyone used it.
Thank you again.
