Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) is used as a glue/binder in many fused glass products.
Available in powdered form from most ceramic suppliers, CMC is inexpensive, non-toxic and burns relatively cleanly.
See “liquid stringer” for an example of one way in which CMC is used.
Thank you for your suggestion.
