Denatured Alcohol licence
Hi all .. I am just coming up to the finishing stages of buiding a guitar and I have decided to apply french polish as a finish.
Now I am told that methylated spirit as we know it in England is not suitable as a solvent because the purple dye in it will stain spruce tops. So I have no choice but to use industrial denatured alcohol (IDA) which is clear and 95% ethanol and 5% naphtha.
I know I need to obtain a licence to buy IDA and I know I get that licence from HMRC but in the usual 'lets make this as hard as humanly possible' tradition I cannot find the form needed to apply for this licence.
Question: are there any french polishers on here who can direct me to the form please. PLEASE!
