Default Slight curved mandrel

Just found Swamper's thread with how to tut!! Thanks!!!!



I am updating a family piece wedding cake topper...this will be 4th generation used. Pretty excited. I want to do a small garland on an arch that goes over figures. Creating the curved mandrel is easy peasy....but how do you get the curved portion OUT of the glass???? All help needed and appreciated!

Shawnette has the method! It takes a little practice but it does work quite well.

You are welcome. I don't curve the mandrel until after the bead is shaped and the wire is thin enough that it will pull right out.
