1) Mix by weight
– 8 parts shellac flakes (get ‘em here)
– 1 part rosin (available at any music shop)
– 1 part carnauba wax (online)
– 1 drop clove essential oil (find it in the health and beauty section at your local grocery store)
– 99% rubbing alcohol to preferred cut (any pharmacy)

2) French polish then buff to a shine going from 2F pumice to 4F pumice powder and finally rottenstone

In the works: Just shellac, borax and water using shellac flakes. The number of coats will depend on the cut. I found a recipe at this website
