*This listing is for 1 jar of FosterFire Regular Formula Bead Release - 18 oz . Please contact me if you wish to order multiple jars so I can get you the cheapest shipping for your area.
FosterFire Bead Release is made in 3 formulas: Regular was designed for use with soft glass. It is the most economical choice and can work with any glass. It is recommended by the manufacturer of curved mandrels and for extra long beads. Heavy Duty was designed for boro, sculptural and hollows. If you like a more rugged bead release that stands up to more tugging then this is the one I recommend. This one is most often preferred by boro users.
Smooth & Tuff uses a different manufacturing method and was created for use with brass presses. I use this one all the time for anything and everything, but it takes longer to manufacture and so the cost is higher.
For ALL formulas: Please mix or shake well before each use. Consistency should be like tomato sauce from a can. If it ever looks rough, patchy or forms a ridge when dipping then add water and mix well.
Note on return policy: Any requests for returns must be made within 6 months of original purchase. Please see full return policy on the Shop Policies tab or send a convo if you have questions.
No refunds after 6 months. This is Etsy policy as well, the Etsy system doesn't process refunds after 6 months.
Bead release is made from materials that are mined from the earth. I use the same formula and same techniques I always have but there can be slight variations in the materials from time to time. Heat and some chemical tap water additives can destroy bead release.
I do accept returns. You ship the jar back to me at your expense for testing and I return the full amount you paid for the release which includes your original shipping cost. If the jar tests as normal then I don't refund your shipping cost to me. If there is a problem with the bead release then I refund the cost of shipping it back to me.
