    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.

    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.
