Don’t make me blush

Q: I need to finish a reproduction 17th Century Chester County Spice box. How much trouble will I have if I take the box into the unheated garage long enough to spray shellac with an HVLP and, then take it right back into the house? Will I end up with blushing?
A: Not likely. However, if you do, simply spray it again and the blush will go away. The truth is that you probably will have no problems whatsoever.
