If you pull your own murini, you can leave it as cane, heat the spot on the bead where you want it, poke the cane into the hot spot, wait, and break or cut off as close to the bead surface as you can. A small dollop or clear glass over the murini will protect it as you melt it smooth. Another trick that I learned from Michael Barley is to have your murini on a warmer, melt the tip of a clear thin rod or thick stringer, warm the spot on the bead, pick up the murini with the hot glass, place/press it onto the bead and burn off the clear. Instant encasement.
