Incense project, part one

Tools, and some of the ingredients.
Makko powder and guar gum.
The red powder is saffron.
And, water, to make dough.
"raw" incense, ready for forming.

Ohhh...this is exciting :)! I've always wondered what it took to make incense!

I'm curious why you used both guar gum and makko together. One or the other should work? Or are you using makko as both a base and a binder?

I've always wanted to try my hand at making incense. I can't wait to see more! Where do you get your supplies?

As soon as my internet connection calms down (it seems to have a bit of early spring fever and is NOT reliable), I will post part 2 of this project, and since there will be few pictures, answer your questions.
