Default Love this bead release!

I just bought some of the Easy Bead-Off from DeVardi glass--LOVE IT! Best I've used, so far, in my 6 years at the torch!

Just my two cents.....

Wondered if you've ever used Bucket o' Mud, and if you have how does it compare? I loved Bucket o'Mud, but it's no longer available.

Me too Francesca - I'm eaking out my last half bottle and don't know what to do when it runs out. . .

Haven't used Krag. This stuff is blue when dipped, when heated turns grey, then white when ready for glass. Helps me 'cause I have a perception issue and have a hard time staying in the flame. Great for beginners.
Cleans out really nicely....no issues here!

How does it stand up to presses and mashing?

It holds up to presses and mashing wonderfully! That's all I do is press and mash, lol! I haven't had one crack yet!

It is also blue when dipped but turns white when in the flame.

Go to DeVardi Glass and check it out. All I know is is that I LOVE it, it doesn't crack and my beads slide off the mandrel! Let's hope you all have the same luck...!!!
