  •   Finally something to my standards
By on
Pros : Doesn't spatter or crack when drying, release didn't crack during flameworking and all beads came off mandrels easily.
Cons : Took a very long time to mix to get even consistency
Other Thoughts : After years of testing different bead releases, this is the best I have found and I plan on sticking with this brand from now on.

Pros : It works great! It coats the mandrel evenly if mixed well and it performs wonderfully in the flame. It releases the bead afterwards vary easily. It comes in a plastic bag so if any water gets out it will not get on the rest of your order.
Cons : It's black! After it goes through the flame it will become white in the bead but the rest of it is black and it makes a mess if you are not careful. The water will separate every time you use it which I think is common for all bead release but this is a big container so you are very much aware of it. You must mix it well or you will not get a nice coat on your mandrels.
Other Thoughts : The water will evaporate over time so if it starts to flake in the flame you might need to add some more water. Once I tried to tap some of the extra water off the mandrel after coating to create a thinner layer of coating and the beads would not come off the mandrel so make sure you have enough water in the mix.

  •   great product!
By on
Pros : very reliable product: doesn't flake apart in the torch, isn't too hard to remove bead later.
Cons : The product settles and needs to be re-mixed when you first get it. Not an easy job!

When and how did you get started in stained glass? Ive been interested in stained glass for as long as I can remember. As a child, I would sit in churches and watch the (often) biblical depictions come to life when a stray ray of sunlight cast its illumination our way. Sun shadows dancing. I dabbled in many media over the years, trying to find an outlet for some of the visions careening inside, but none of them took. Drawing, painting - even watercolours - no amount of professional training could guide my hand in a satisfactory way. But then there was the glass. I lived abroad for a few years, and wound my way through Europe on my way back to the States when I finished my Peace Corps Service. My last international destination was Paris, where one of my closest friends lives as an organist. Two beautiful autumn

Chances are, right now, in reading this blog post, youre avoiding an overdue task. I too was avoiding a laundry list of work-related tasks in writing this. Procrastination is a part of life, and its certainly always been a part of mine. As a teenager, my parents would accuse me of putting off everything from piano practice to math homework. Id vehemently deny their charges hissing back, I work better under pressure. The truth was, I often felt overwhelmed, under-productive and anxious. Over the years, Ive been able to combat my avoidance issues using 4 tools. The trick is constantly reminding myself of these actions, because they do not come naturally to me. 1. Just Say No. I say yes to everything. Need someone to head up that event? Sure. Want me to design 12 posters for the Car Wash? No problem. Take your kid to daycare? Of course.
