Spinifex resin refers to the gum traditionally made by Australian Aborigines by burning the Spinifex plant and extracting its resin. The spinifex is threshed until the resin particles fall free. These particles are heated until they fuse together to form a moldable black tar which is worked while warm. When set, this gum is quite strong. Most hunting and working implements benefited from the use of spinifex gum, or resin. Spinifex resin was a crucial ingredient in spear-making, as the head was often fastened onto the shaft using this resin. The traditional Aboriginal axe also made strong use of spinifex resin.
