Dear Ganoksin Members,
First I wanted to thank everyone who answered my pre-set diamond in
platinum question–it was amazing of you to take the time and it
really helped me out!
Another weird question:
When I lived in Germany and we were doing bead stringing, when you
were done with the knotting and had an end cap that had a ball with a
hole in it–we would melt a bit of a brown stick called, “Kitt”
(which I think was like Shellac) on the end of the string, then heat
the end cap and stick it in. It would solidify and hold the string
I cannot find this Kitt-shellac stuff in the beading section of the
catalogues I have. Does anyone have a suggestion of what might be an
equivalent here? Where to find it?
For my current project I will be setting horsehair into an end-cap
and thought shellac would be good. Does anyone else have experience
with this and possibly a better or different suggestion?
