I recently found that a full quart of shellac had blown its lid, and sat in the cabinet slowly evaporating. It is now about half full, and thick. I hate to just throw it away … is there any reason I can’t just add back denatured alcohol to fill the can and use it? I would think that only the alcohol evaporated, and the shellac in the can should dissolve in the new alcohol. I wonder why the top came off … as if it was under pressure.
Just wondering –
