    I sanded the frame of my Sidkit Mal pistol. I'd like to leave it with a bare metal look on the grip frame. Can I use shellac to seal it?

    Thanks,

    Ted.

    Shellac will give it a yellow/orange tint, that tint will shift to more orange over time...

    Best to coat bare metals with clear lacquer, if you don't want a color shift... Or one of the new clear acrylics...
