This may be of interest to some of you (also Norman S.?). It is from a booklet by the National Button Society which details what to expect when you "hot pin" test various types of plastic

That could be an addition to a preceding page or two on materials used for Netsuke, which some enterprising soul would have to make up. A useful format indeed. 8-)

Size is something.

Were cassein and cellulose acetates the only ones used for netsuke? At least I think those two were. (don't quote me on that). Very interesting, RAF.
