    Yeah, like Ed said, don’t freak out when your shellac flakes are a big sticky lump in the bottom of your jar. You didn’t screw up. I about threw away the first batch of shellac flakes I ever made because I thought I did something wrong. Just break it up and stir it a bit, makes it easier for the clumps to dissolve.

    Shellac flakes normally contain wax,which will not dissolve in alcohol. It must be filtered out.
