    Shellac: Where it comes from and how it is made

    Here's a short documentary showing where and how shellac is made. Interesting process.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Interesting, and quite different to what I thought the process was. Thanks for sharing.
    Cheers,

    I prefer flakes. It breaks down faster. Garnet for an a darker more aged look.

    it is cool! Love working with shellac, and Dave's right the flakes imo are the best way to work with it.
