I've run out of pine pitch so I decided to make a quick batch for a few projects
The ingredients are simple. firstly melt down some pine resin, do it slowly! Whenever I try this over a campfire it normally bursts into flame so keep the temperature down
The other ingredients are a little charcoal finely crushed and some beeswax, some people add a fiber to help bind it like powdered rabbit droppings but to be honest in all the time I've been making it I've never found it to be that much more adventageous
Once the resin has fully melted then remove any impurities like bits of bark or pine needles, I like to use chop sticks to do this as they have a dual purpose as we will see shortly
Add all the ingredients and heat slowly until everything has disolved and mixed together
Then using your chopsticks dip them in the pitch to form a blob on the end, this can then be heated or lit and the pitch dropped on whatever you need it for, I also like to keep a small tin of pitch as I find it's easier to heat and use that way, and there you have it Caveman Hot Melt glue!
