Back in the early 80's I taught Crafts at the HS. I had put a gallon of
shellac in a plastic jar and had it setting on a drafting table right behind
my desk. On this particular day, I had my waist length hair unbound and had
my embroidered jacket I had been stitching for ten years on the back of my
chair--one of my advanced students was working on a mural over the door and
dropped something heavy off the ladder which landed on the drafting table
causing the shellac to bounce and cascade down my back.........nothing on the
student using the shellac.......we had a 1/2 pint of thinner in the room, the
shop teachers found another 1/2 pint---took my students about 2 hours to
clean me and the room. I bought a gallon of thinner at the paint store and
soaked most of it out of my jacket, it still has stiff areas relating back to
those days. ( And I teach the niece of one of the girls who cleaned me up that
Joy at the beginning of the Erie Canal. Happy Holidays to all and RELAX.
