Used to make self-threading needles and seal closing knots. Water soluble, it washes off hands, tools and beads easily.
Needle-less 'needles' can be made from dipping the end of a silk thread in Gum Arabic. Allow it to dry and trim on an angle; it will be quite stiff and become an excellent beading needle for stringing beads. Gum Arabic is a water-soluble gum obtained from several species of the acacia tree and which used in the manufacture of adhesives and ink.
