Fabio, this reply is from the Zinsser Company - the largest distributor of Shellac in North America (I have a local contact, so I forwarded your question.)

"> This is to confirm my earlier email regarding a method for raising the melting point of shellac. The addition of another alcohol soluble resin may accomplish this, depending upon the melting point of that resin. We have not done any significant or quantifiable research here on that issue, so I can only speak in generalities. There are a number of natural alcohol soluble resins such as copol, rosin, sandarac and mastic. There are also a number of synthetic resins that will dissolve in alcohol, including certain acrylic resins. The compatibility of each of these resins with shellac as well as the melting point and hardness of the dry film are issues that the customer must explore in the course of his own experimentation. We wish him luck.>"

Again, this reply is straight from the International Product Manager over shellac based products from Zinsser.
