Fishing line for masks and you can use ribbon to tie it like a drs mask. For single bracelets or cuffs, I used to use clear stretch cord but it is pricey for how much comes on a roll. Now I use this elastic cord I get off of consumercrafts.com. The cord is a lot stronger than the clear cord you usually see. This site is pretty awesome, I get a lot of my beads here too. This is a link to the cord: https://www.consumercrafts.com/store/details/catal... It comes in pretty big rolls of either black, red and purple.

Braclets - I use .8mm Clear Stretch Cord

Mask- I use .5mm Clear Stretch Cord or Elymers Elastic Cord

Get it all at Walmart. I find stretch magic to be expensive

Elastic cord if it needs to stretch or use fishing line if it does not need to stretch.

Depends on what it is. For a regular single or necklace you can use stretchy string. For harder things like cuffs, masks, etc. you can use elastic cord.

Normal kandi stretch magic is life! I've used alot of different types and stretch magic takes the most damage without snapping. as with straps for the masks I have made cheer

@kevaramic: yes fishing line love!!!!! saw a mask made from stretchy string...snapped and the mask was lost...but gotta have strong fishing line my Ol man got me some 6lb line (my choice not knowing)...went to tie a knot the line snapped....sucks cause it's 700 yrd I can use

best cord to use for cuffs. stretch magic works well, but the problem is that over time, the plastic can get really stretched out and snap. i stopped using stretch magic for everything but singles. hope this helps!
