Manufacturer and Builder ?, 1893

The ordinary lacquer of commerce is composed of spirits of wine and clear shellac in the proportion of 1 ounce of shellac to 1 pint of spirit. Heat should not be applied, but the ingredients placed in a glass-stoppered bottle and shaken from time to time until the shellac is thoroughly dissolved or combined with the spirit. Various tints may be given the lacquer by adding small quantities of aniline colors.
