    Hah you eva tried to scrape outta coconut in 30 secs...? hahah!

     Why remove video oh  whats the point ? 

    cool idea. the instruction on the video went a little fast and a little unclear. good idea

    Can I find more instructions? Or is the video it?

    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.

    just go to your neighborhood micheals (art supply store) and your looking at around 5-15 dollars

    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.

    Thanks, it was shellac specifically that I was interested in (w/ref to the alternatives you mentioned) L

    Wow! very creative and the music was a nice touch :D
