The sky is my canvas, and I have 2,113 pounds of powdered paint in the workshop.

Yep, after 2 or 3 bends on the same spot the NC seems to crack and loose it's strength. Never heard of camphor as an additive, but worth a try.
its in ping pong balls.
you could make a laquer from them but it wont dry shiny, it will be flexible, the acetone may ruin the fuse.

This is one machine I want to build eventually though I lack skill building things, I suppose if I keep trying I have to get it to work eventually, right?
NC Lacquer can also be made from smokeless powder dissolved in acetone, make sure you use a powder that is single base. I prefer Green Dot, which is a double base but it seems to add a nice SNAP to the Dragon Eggs made with it. For "run of the mill" NCL I use one of the IMR four digit powders.

If you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord" and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. (Romans 10:9-10).
This post represents my 2¢ alone.

In my undertaking of making flash cotton "nitrocellulose" I have found that once the nitrocellulose has dried and acetone is mixed the cellulose cotton will dissolve into a gel, that if left will turn into a hard white plastic.
So from nitrocellulose to nitrocellulose lacquer.
Add all your cotton in a glass bowl and slowly add acetone to the cotton until the cotton is fully dissolved.
Please please please be safe. I will add a photo graphic process later on on how I make flash cotton and also on how to turn it into nitrocellulose lacquer to use to cover visco fuse into visco safety fuse
Yep, don't bother with that last part outside of the HE section.
