anyone heard of shellac going murky...thickened and frothy. This is a new batch....8 oz DA 2oz shellac? Deep Amber. I mixed 2 other batches at the same time and they are both thin and clear all stored at the same temp glass Ball jars.
My other thought is that there might just be a lot of foreign matter in the flakes. I'd give it enough time to dissolve completely (if it hasn't already), strain it through a coffee filter and see what you end up with.
Were the two other batches from the same flakes?
Was the batch that appeared murky from the bottom of the bag of flakes?
