Default Tumbling question

I saw somewhere your mention of waxing beads after tumbling them. I am about to begin tumbling my glass, and I wonder what sort of wax you use? I have put a bit of mineral oil on my sand blasted items, but it doesn't seem to last well.
On another subject, I agree with you about Amazon Bronze being a great frit. I have done a lot of experimenting, but I get very inconsistent results. Do you cook the heck out of it before casing? Do you cool and then reduce before casing? I am aiming for good strong variety of colors, not just a metallic look.
Thanks again for all your sharing.
