Light-Shellac 2.0 Varnish is a carbon treated and micro filtered shellac varnish with a slower drying solvent system.

Benefits of Light-Shellac 2.0

  • A longer open time for pouring, draining and blotting.  This eliminates the common far edge drying to a matte finish
  • Allows for the plate to be placed flat for a minute before heating.  This lets the varnish level and eliminates edge rollback lines.
  • Uniform high gloss finish 
  • Safe solvents - Safer than the base 95% pure ethanol
  • Can be used at room temperature without heating the plate before pouring
  • Less sensitive to heat and humidity variations
  • Easier to get good results verses a traditional all ethanol varnish 
  • Lighter than plain shellac
  • Dries faster and harder than sandarac


 Used for Tintypes, Ambrotypes, and Glass Negatives.
