I use elastic lycra thread, superglue gel and Zipkicker accelerator.
Essential tools are a sharp pair of scissors, a good set of tweezers and wooden cocktail sticks.
I cut a length of thread, just short of the length required.
I soak this in the accelerator.
I use a cocktail stick to apply a tiny dot of superglue gel.
Using the tweezers, I apply one end of the thread to the gel. The glue then sets immediately and your rigging thread is anchored.
Another dot of gel at the other end of the rigging and apply the loose end of thread to that and there you go...one rigging thread completed.
I colour mine using Mr.Metal color, but you could use a gel pen.
Seriously easy peasy and, because the finished job is elastic, it's a lot more resilient to knocks than other materials.
If you use blunt scissors, you can end up splitting the thread, which has it's own uses.
