Using crushed egg shells in lacquer?


#1

Buy some of the urisol resin in Vietnam – that is what it is! it
isn’t legal to sell in the US anymore. This resin is related or the
same resin that causes poison ivy. A similar resin was once used ion
the west coast of Mexico for the same purpose. One of Charles
Codinas Lark books has a good description on how to use it (
including the eggshells)
