Make shellac less shiny
I recently carved a small coffee scoop, and since it won't be routinely sumberged in hot water, I decided to finish it with spray on shellac (yes, shellac, not lacquer). It's non-toxic, and I figured it'd be easy. But the problem I am having with it is that is really really shiny! To me the scoop went from a cool hand carved walnut scoop to a cheap mass produced one with that shiny spray on lacquer that they seem to put on everything. I don't think I like it.
Has anybody had experience with making shellac a little duller/matte? I am thinking about maybe trying to sand it with some 500 grit wet/dry sandpaper with a little water, but since I left a lot of the tool marks in the bowl of the spoon, I'm concerned that I won't be able to get the shellac uniformly scuffed.
Might just end up wiping all the shellac off with some denatured alcohol, and doing my usual mineral oil and beeswax finish instead...
