Subject:
first layer

David Weaver
I found a plastic container that would be good as sacrificial and put a layer in just under 1/4th inch. The amber shellac and white alumina make for bird vomit as far as looks.

I don't think shellac will be the way to do it in any reasonable period of time (it'll be a while before this wafer dries), but did order some two part epoxy finish that has a long open time and is supposed to dry with no or minimal bubbles.

I think it'll have better surface toughness than shellac, too.
