query on how to do threading?

Dear friends,


I would like to build some ship paper models from "Los barcos de papel" website. Before start the build, I want to know how to do the threading like what the author did in his pages. Do you know where can I find some tutorial pages for this?

Thanks and wish you all a Merry Christmas!!

I know two ways.

Using the appropriate thickness of black thread, cover it in PVA then cut it to length. Another is thin black elastic cut to length.

In both cases use a small dot of glue to hold them in place

What Mike said, only I coat mine and then hang them with a little weight on the end while they dry. Otherwise I end up with a curve in the thread
