Henk: I got my gutta-percha from a friendly dentist.  It came in small flat
sheets.  Use a soldering iron, or anything that will heat a small piece of
it, and it will flow into the cracks of the vulcanite.  My friends at Leica
told me that they use Kodak Brushing Lacquer #4 to paint the results black.
I imagine that any shoe polish would do the trick as well, if you can't get
the Kodak item.
