You will also want to get some ethanol, which acts as a solvent. Denatured alcohol is also readily available at most home centers, but be ware that this product is ethanol that usually has had methanol added to it to prevent people from ingesting it. Methanol is highly toxic, even in small quantities. There are other versions of denatured alcohol that use agents besides methanol. Check the label to be sure. You can also use 190 proof Everclear as a solvent for shellac as well. This is more expensive than denatured alcohol, but you don't have to worry about toxic ingestions.
