How to make Amber


 Amber typically contains up to 8% succinic acid.  We can look at amber a lot like epoxy with 2 parts, a hardener and a polymer.  The hardener in the case of amber is succinic acid and the polymer is communic acid.  I can't find a source of comminic acid but all plant resin seems to contain it.  So to make amber what should work is to add succinic acid to plant resin and heat.  Also adding some bicarbonate source like baking soda may help as well.  Natural plastic or adhesive.
