Painting MDF: Shellac

This week we’re showing you the test results from using four different kinds of paint along with our MDF terrain!

Our first choice was shellac, normally used to protect wood. MDF is known to be susceptible to moisture, so this seemed the natural choice.

It is not! On the bright side, the shellac adds some nice texture to the building. Furthermore, it is easy to use paint and glue along with the shellac.

The problem: Every layer of paint makes it more difficult to assemble and dissamble the building again. The shellac coats easily gets very thick! We’ll give shellac a 2/5 rating. If you were going to glue the buildings anyway, you might not have a problem with the disadvantages, though.
