I know I saw a site somewhere that had all kinds of pictures of where
shellac comes from. Lac beetles, harvesting, what raw shellac looks like
with all the bug parts in it, etc. I've spent an hour googling, and I've
turned up bupkis. I usually don't bookmark things, because I have
gradually just grown dependent on remembering enough keywords to re-google
something at will. Not this time.
Any ideas? Did I maybe read it in a book somewhere? I don't think any of
my WW books have color photographs though, and this was color. I don't
read WW magazines.
I'm trying to find this to satisfy my children's curiosity about the bag of
weird looking orange bug doodoo I have on my desk, and to assure them that
it's not made at the expense of using up some unrenewable endangered
I have also just assured them that it's not really bug crap, but actually
something more like solidified aphid honeydew. Is that actually accurate,
or is it really more of a fecal material?
