Glue and Needles

When I was young natural products were the thing, however, synthetic products have their place too

Whilst working with c-lon and experimenting with macramé I used superglue to  stiffen the ends of thread making it easier to thread seed beads on.  I prefer it for sealing ends of paracord and beading cord also.  Not wanting to set fire to myself.

I have also made beading needles with very thin beading wire folded in half and twisted and snipped off at the end

Cold procelaine is a mixture of cornflour and wood/school glue (pva) which makes a very nice material when varnished
