Forum Title: Spraying pigmented shellac: safety required?
From an explosion/fire concern what does one need to do? I read the can, the tds and the few posts on here referencing it. Wanna spray it for some trim only and not for fire restoration nor to lock down wall smells. Is it as simple as no pilot lights and a fan in the window or is more needed? Is the danger as high as spraying nitro lacquer or less?

No pilots (check water heater, stove, and I'd turn the thermostat off and check the furnace)....i don't spray much of it personally but yes, use the same precautions as you would with lacquer. I'd be over zealous and be careful with the fan also as it could be a source of ignition in a small space. I'd open windows or?? (Mask with the intention of cutting a slit down the middle of the window, assuming there are windows) when you're done For a few then bring the fan in... again, I don't spray it (or use it for that matter) much so I'd definitely err on the side of caution though some may see it as silly....i don't like things that go boom....especially if it's me!
