nifty useful japanese how-to videos

i found these and i wanted to share!

how to make a scratch card...using watercolors, a candle and glue

how to make crisp non-bleeding lines on fabric using fabric/permanent markers using hairspray
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5bejDaiI6X0&search=japan%20ito%20coffee%20urawaza

is there a specific ingredient that the hairspray needs to have? they seem to highlight something on the label and i don't read japanese.. i think any aerosol spray would work. it's just so darn clever! i need to try this.

EDIT: thanks to those who cleared it up for me.. the magic ingredient is copolymer! i think it's pretty standard, if anyone tries this let me know how it works :)

They say to look for "copolymer" in the ingredients... I don't use hairspray so I'm not sure if that's commonly used/listed in North America or not, but it makes me want to try!

I think it was listed in the comments, but, it might be http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copolymer .

Awww! I love that scratchcard idea. Especially the fish one with the fish bones.
