Subject: sand collar
Dear all, anyone who's new need advice on how to preserve a moon
snail sand collar? I have a method, and I am dying to share it.
Here it is:
Take 5 average spoonfuls of Elmers glue, and 15 average spoonfuls of
Mix together. Make sure you get a watery, but not translucent, mixture.
If you get a thick mixture, add more water.
Put sand collar into mixture and let sit for 1 hour.
Remove sand collar from mixture.
Put sand collar on paper towel to dry in the sun, moving it occasionally
to prevent sticking.
Let dry for about 2 hours, then display!
This method worked great for me!
Kind Regards James
