Subject: [CR]Shellac life on tires

Does anyone know how long shellac is good for gluing tires on? I carefully shellacked on a tire two years ago, strictly going by Steve Snowling's book Bicycle Mechanics. It now appears to have separated at several spots. A friend suggested it should be reapplied annually. Does anyone know about this? Ted Ernst, are you still out there?
