Good use of the 30 seconds. How easy / expensive is it to get shellac these days? L
I think you can get Modge Podge for about six dollars at any craft store... That's shellac, right? ...
No, I don't believe Modge Podge is shellac. L

Mod Podge is not shellac...but it could really work for this project...it's water-based, and they have an "outdoor" variety that's supposed to be water resistant. Apply in several thin coats...

It was shellac specifically that I was interested in, as it's not that easy to find and rather old-fashioned.

just go to your neighborhood micheals (art supply store) and your looking at around 5-15 dollars
I'm not living in your geographical location but how much do you get for 5-15$? L
oceanblue824 (author)  lemonie4 years ago
enough for allot of project it will probably last for about like 20 of the magazine bowls
For pure curiosity do you have any idea of how many insect-excretions it takes per bowl? L

no i dont sorry
Shellac(alcohol with the shellac flakes), not so common as it used to be, however... Varnish(linseed oil with the shellac flakes) is a suitable substitute. Is cheap, and available almost anywhere. Polyurethane and lacquer are, in every way I can think of, a better finish. Most home stores, any woodworking store, many hardware stores, will all cary them. Couple dollars for a gallon.
Thanks, it was shellac specifically that I was interested in (w/ref to the alternatives you mentioned) L
