Mixing up a batch of shellac. From left to right BT&C Blonde Shellac Flakes cheap electric coffee grinder denatured alcohol measuring cup and digital scales. One pound cut equals 8oz of alcohol and 1oz of flakes. I grind the flakes in the coffee grinder so they resolve better faster. Thanks for the tip on that @guyswoodshop #shellac #finewoodworking #woodworking #woodwork #finishing #woodfinish #woodfinishing de sl1800
Talas - Shellac Flakes Available in three grades: No.1-lemon flake shellac, the most common tone, often referred to as "orange shellac. Crystallac #1100- dewaxed natural shellac flakes of darker tone than No. 1 lemon flake, suitable for French polishing. Crystallac #500- super blond dewaxed natural shellac flake produces equally hard finish as Crystallac #1100 but does not have an orange hue.
Use canning jars for inexpensive storage containers for your wood finishes, hide glues, and shellac flakes. These are great, they are air tight, and will not break your budget.
