Just a tip some may not know. If you're out of krystal flash, thinner versions of flashabou can be stretched in to krystal.

I tested it with 4 different kinds of flashabou. The thick stuff broke, thin stuff worked perfect, can't tell the difference between the stretched flashabou and store bought krystal.
