I use that HF hand vacuum pump on a round thick sided glass pickle jar.
What do you use to stabilize your rocks, friend?

Hey sealdaddy, how does the cactus juice weather? Does it dry glass clear, and do you know if it yellows with age?
I have a bunch of copper rock material that I've collected, but most of it is not hard enough to work. Would love to find something that can be used to stabilize it and look good for years.
