i have made hair gel in the past with it. a teaspoon boiled in a mugful of water makes a lovely gel, to be kept in the fridge though as it does go off. from leaving the seeds in the teastrainer i knew it set fast, so i just used less water to make a thicker gel for glue. well if you consider linseed is the stuff for window putty. don't know how long the paper will stay stuck mind but atm it is doing the job on the xmas cards.
