Shellac is like Dr. Frankenstein...giving life to your pointe shoes. Yeah, it makes pointes extremly ugly--But hey, it's saving
you a boatload of money for shoes that you'd wear out in a heartbeat anyway. So wihtout further a'do, let's Shellac 'em!.
1.Get a bottle of 99% isopropy alcohol. Pour 1/4 of it into another bottle.
2. Place a medium-sized piece of rock rosin in a durable plastic bag and using a rubber mallet, cruch it into fine powder.
3. Add the rosin powder to the original container of alcohol until it turns a deep amber colour. The deeper the colour,
the stronger the shellac.
4. Pour the shellac into a leak-proof sqeaze bottle.
5. Save the left over alcohol for your next batch of shellac.
WARNNING: Alcohol IS flamable so becareful were you store your shoes!
