Just dry them as you would dry any other mushroom; i.e. in a warm, well-ventilated place. Shellac sounds like a good way to bring out the colors once dried; I'd recommend drying them out completely and then treat with shellac as soon as possible to prevent degradation. I suspect that UV light is detrimental to the colors, so keep them out of direct sunlight as much as possible.
As I understand, turkey tail tea should taste a tad bitter and fungal, but I haven't tried it personally. There's a few other people around here, some of them actually enjoy the taste. It's an acquired one, in any case.
Btw, consider using a . or a , once in a while. It really improves the readability of your posts.
