Hi Brian, I wanted to make the Japanese wax Mitsuru-which contains
pine resin. In 2 years of diligent search, no one who would sell me
less than a 100 gallon drum of refined pine resin. Finally at a
yardsale in Maine, I found a very old box of grafting wax (used to
graft trees)- I figured it must have pine resin in it- & called the
company on the box. I don’t have the # anymore, as I bought it 6 years
ago, but here’s his address, they don’t usually sell small quantities,
but they did sell me 5 lbs for $15 including shipping. Nice folks.
Walter E. Clark IV 550 Greasy Hill Rd. Orange Hill, CT 06477
Hope this helps,
Kate Wolf in Maine where we’re overwhelmed with azaleas and tulips.
