    <p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="en-gb" xml:lang="en-gb">Shellac is a resinous secretion of the lac insect and it is the only commercially used natural resin of animal origin. After the crude lac is gathered from the tree, it is crushed and graded and the largest particles are called "Seedlac". This set of small selected natural “golden gems” is simply cold washed to eliminate dust and wood residues and to keep intact the characteristics of the native resin such as the colour and the waxy component. This resin has been recently rediscovered by luthiers who want to give their alcohol varnishes rich and warm shades and at the same time soften their recipes.</span></p> <p></p>
