Hello. I want to apologize up front about not being a true painting contractor, and asking a "how to" question.
I am in the process of buying a home that had a good deal of smoke damage and will be restoring it myself.
My plan is to gut the home to the studs and baking soda blast all remaining surfaces. At that point I was going to spray a white shallac based primer/paint such as BIN.
My question, is are there any products that do not have pigment that would work equally as well as BIN to seal the mahogany trim? Would a regular clear shellac seal any remaining smoke smell?
Thanks in advance
