OK, so I'm taking everyone's advice and collecting more than I'll need. So far this season, including the first haul I have 32 sticks.

Great looking bunch of sticks!  You won't regret having extra.

As you can see I used some old paint to seal the ends but I promise the pink will come off when I finish them LOL. some of the later ones I used white glue thinking it would drip less than paint but it's about the same. But I just dunk them then let them dry. Do you brush off the excess or just let it dry thick?

Mostly what I've used is shellac-more because it was handy than any other reason. I just wipe it on and leave it. I don't think thick or thin matters as much as just having something there to slow drying down.

Same here. An old spray can of shellac the gf had kicking around. A couple of coats does the trick.
