Shellac
is a resin secreted by the female lac bug, on trees in the forests of India and Thailand. It is processed and sold as dry flakes (pictured at right), which are dissolved in ethanol to make liquid shellac, which is used as a brush-on colorant, food glaze and wood finish. Shellac functions as a tough natural primer, sanding sealant, tannin-blocker, odour-blocker, stain, and high-gloss varnish.
Shellac was once used in electrical applications as it possesses good insulation qualities and it seals out moisture. Phonograph (gramophone) records were also made of it during the 78-rpm recording era which ended in the west during the 1950s.From the time it replaced oil and wax finishes in the 19th century, shellac was one of the dominant wood finishes in the western world until it was largely replaced by nitrocellulose lacquer in the 1920s and 1930s.

We have over 300 colours, far more than being offered by other brands that are out there and thus as always in business you will find that people would like to draw the attention away from how good a product is rather to an arbitrary non-issue that has no bearing on the product at all.

We rather focus on the quality of our product that speaks for itself, as well as pricing which if you look at per ml, ours is R 17.50/ml and the others out there at about R 46.53/ml. This equates to nearly a third of the price.
