Well things are moving along quite well with my restoration/duplication project. I have decided on Tried and True Oil Varnish for one camera and Shellac for the other.

There are a few areas such as the inside of the back, and around where the bellows will be attached that need to be painted flat black.

Should I prime these areas with shellac before I apply the paint?

Any thoughts on what kind/brand of flat black paint I should use?
