    I think you can get Modge Podge for about six dollars at any craft store... That's shellac, right? ...

    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.

    For pure curiosity do you have any idea of how many insect-excretions it takes per bowl? L

    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.
