RE: [GreenYes] Fw: BOUNCE greenyes@grrn.org: Non-member submission from ["Gavin Coulson" <meta@acenet.co.za>]
Hi Chris, Nicholas and all,

	I would suggest the use of tapioca, wheat, rice or some vegetable
matter with longer fibers (pumpkin perhaps) that would act as a binder to
link the potato starch together. Shredded wheat cereal may work. The fibers
would act much the same way as fiberglass strands that are used to
strengthen polyester or polypropylene  in satellite dishes and fiberglass
car parts. 

Best wishes,
Tom Rhodes

I've been going through non-member bounces and found this.

While it would be appropriate to send to Nicholas directly, 
feel free to copy links, suggestions, recipes to GreenYes as well.

His address is: meta@acenet.co.za

Cheers,

Chris
