I don't think shellac is usually for outdoor use? I wonder if there is another product that would work better outdoors?

Does it crack and flake off? Do you have to do any prep before recoating (power wash, etc.)?

I'm contemplating using faux bamboo for the front of my outside bar. I don't want to create a future headache.

I wonder if tinted polyurethane or even trying to dye the pvc would be a better option.

I'm not an expert, but I was trying to find a coating that would give a nice finish and protect the paint from exposure. The shellac did protect the paint from peeling but it did fade in the direct sunlight.
