    Cool! Wonder if adding Tapioca starch would help make it even more tough, closer to the real thing. Just C.S.E. thinking.....

    I heard one can add glycerin to it, which i have at home so I might give that a try <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">

    Nice vid mate.<br>I wonder if you could use jelly as back stop. I mean, will it hold for days? Will it degrade/stink after some days?
