  17. For all the pieces: Place some SC-15 Tuxedo on a palette or tile sprinkle with AC-310 Silkscreen Medium.

Mix up 5-minuet epoxy then spread a generous amount in the recess under the crust. Lay the jute into the wet epoxy, add the beads if desired, and let it cure for 24 hours before hanging, or as the directions state.
