Thanks Kristin and Laura. Yes, Kristin, come to the dark side... Good luck with the oxycon! Hope you can fix it.

Pretty beads, Laura! How cool to use a frit named after your biz. I need to get out more and check on some of her frit.

KA, I agree with Susan. Fusion/FPI is awesome. Only super heat where your footprint will go, otherwise the part that was heated and then cooled will sometimes crack when you marver or use a roller.

I have exactly this problem also! I have many beads that I cannot get off the mandrel either.

Thanks but I bought this a few years ago and everyone raved about it. Specifically designed for boro so I came to the conclusion I am more of a pendant type guy.

I've tried (since starting in 200:

Dirty Louies
BOM (Bucket of Mud ... no longer produced)
Super Blue Sludge (no longer produced)
ABR release
FosterFire Smooth and Tuff
Tuffy's (which everyone was raving about)
Super Blue Ultra (replaced the previous version ... one ingredient became unavailable)
And final Fusion that Susan gifted me.

The original Super Blue was the best for me for Boro. Ultra is designed to release easy once cool and I end up with anything silver glass that you need to cool and strike or cool and reduce ... the darn release lets loose.

Fusion has been the best ... though still not perfect for beads.
