Varnish is something that provides an even surface and a glossy and transparent appearence, and in this case rigidity too.

Thank you guys for all your kind words. I am really looking forward to seeing your versions... Ü

Mamachka:
You just need your fingers to wind them on (in fact the hard edge you get passing throug the flame could be very useful to start it), and keeping it really tight. To get the consistency in size use the same number of ribbons in each bead and that's it.
