Shellac with Polyurethane Top Coat

Recommended Posts

I've used shellac a bit in the past with good results but after a bit of research I've found that these are the downsides of it.

1) Alcohol messes it up

2) It's not water proof

3) It can scratch easily

Assuming this is true could I get round it by spraying a few coats of polyurethane (from a can) on top? Would this make it alcohol and water resistant and a bit more hard wearing? Are there any downsides of this?
