Sticky wax, an inert white dental hygienic wax that has passed an
independent Oddy test, is available from Benchmark, a provider of
mountmaking, display and museum exhibition supplies at:

    Cane Farm Building 7
    PO Box 214
    Rosemont, NJ 08556
    Fax: 609-397-1159

We are always glad to provide samples so you can try it out first.
