Bead release is very personal. What makes a bead release your favorite often has a lot to do with the kind of beads you make or how you work the glass and mandrel in the flame. We have provided Fosterfire for a few reasons:
- We like how it holds up to multiple pressings.
- We like how it dissolves in water, making it easy to use with some of the Inspirational Mandrels where you can't turn the glass on the mandrel. Some bead releases require that turn in order to break the bond of the release to the glass and the mandrel. Fosterfire, especially the regular formula dissolves making that removal easier.
- We like how easy it is to clean out of the beads.
We offer Fosterfire Smooth & Tuff in two sizes, 8 oz or 18 oz, please select which you prefer from the drop down menu.
