Pro Marks are usually too forward weighted for me but in all fairness I haven't checked them out in years.

epoxy and hardener. cure time depends on time and temperature, a day or two at room T. They have a 'trial kit' for $18

Not sure how you get/fashion a symmetric bead but you can maybe dip your stick tip and let it hang dry. ok...that was an awkward statement , lol
Good tip, I'll look into it.

Shrink wrap doesn't seem like it would be hard enough, but that wouldn't stop me from trying.
Sucking all the fun right out of life....
