I usually use shellac in methyl alcohol ...For me, lacquer causes far less paper warping than shellac does.  I use Minwax clear brushing lacquer, usually gloss since it seems to give a harder finish and makes it easier to see coverage. For shellac it is Zinsser clear. Both in quart cans.
I know from the 1:1 scale wooden boat crowd that dry shellac resin flakes can be bought in bulk and mixed to desired thickness from watery to pasty.

See y'all later, Forrest.
