Only way I can think of to do it is use a heavy wax around a form with a release agent.

thanks. i have played with a heavy stock paper and rolled it and using non toxic white glue i glued it to stay after rolling it. then i melted par. wax and dipped the paper in it and let dry. worked pretty well after clipping ends even.looked better with no wax so i used that method
i am not using these straws to drink just for props in photos.i didn't want to buy a lot just for props

thanks for taking the time to answer. Smiley
