I use a 2# cut for French polishing and 1# cut for everything else, which includes protection. I just use a pad to put it on. I don't buy the ready mixed or spray on.
To make 1 cup of a 1# cut, mix 8 ounces of alcohol (1 cup) to
1 ounce of flakes. You need to weigh the flakes. It'll take a while to melt the flakes. To melt it faster, I put the flakes in a blender and powder them. I sit down in front of the TV and I keep the alcohol/shellac mixture moving. It'll take about an hour.
I get my shellac here:
