  4. Caro Syrup , I , from another hemishpere, use "golden Syrup, which describes its colour. but the ingreient is cane sugar based, and have used, ex brit, sugar beet based Golden syrup, so in Poland I am sure you will have access to beet syrup, what is used to make toffee, biscuits etc. Thick golden stuff. Provides stick factor. Callie, I had a jar of Spooze made up so just used it, but I would not recommend mending handles on functional ware with anything.

  12. well Pres and Marcia, it's maybe a given that your responses will be liked! I do use paper, latex and wax resists and I guess texture.so only the high bits get caught by new colour application never used shellac, what's involved with that? I do resist getting drawn into the is it art or craft debate..
