low-fire beads and buttons

updated sun 31 aug 97

I want to make beads and buttons using raku and salt bisque, but
I am concerned about chipping and easy breakage. A friend suggested the
finished items could have a finish applied or perhaps they could be
soaked in a glue-and-water solution (Elmers?) since they are so porous.
Anyone out there with relevant experience? Any and all suggestions welcome.
