Chance, doing them on glass is an excellent idea.  I was pressing them and wondering if there is a better solution. Thanks for the idea mate.

The closest you can get to the original paper cartridges is onionskin paper saturated in potassium nitrate. When making the cartridge and attaching it to the ball, use water glass (sodium silicate) for your glue. Regular glue will encrust your barrel and eventually ruin your gun so don't use it in making your cartridges. Use gloves too. Sodium Silicate solution is not good for your skin.

i make my combustible cartridges out of silkspan. thats a linen  based material that is sold here for model airplane covering. it comes in the grades light, medium, and heavy. i use medium . soak it in a mixture of1 tablespoon of saltpeter and 1 cup of water. glue with sodium silicate. i dip the silk span in the saltpeter mix and hang on the shower pole in the bathroom and air dry.role on a brass mandrel i had a friend machine for me . use heavy silkspan for sharps carbine cartridges. works fine. i role the cartridge wile watch t.v. can make about 5 or 6 a min. a good couple hour western and i've made quite a few for a week end shoot. kurt250

Couple more. French one good for trapper or Blockade runner contraband. Pistol one good for any relevant period.
