Dura Thermtm 5G

Dura Therm is a thick dark liquid which is used as a bead release on the steel mandrels used for beadmaking.  Packaged under the brand name “Choice”, it comes in a concentrated form which is easily mixed with water to the  desired consistency. It is economical and safer to prepare coming  in liquid form allowing finished beads to slide easily off the mandrel. However care needs to be taken when removing finished beads as the release will then be powdery.

Hxtal NYL-1, Part A

Hxtal NYL-1 (pronounced hextal) is a non-yellowing two part museum grade epoxy resin. It is ideal for repairing glass, porcelain and stained glass restoration. When used thinly it will penetrate cracks and make them disappear. Many glass artists use Hxtal  to glue parts together to form glass art. The glue has a long curing rate but allows for repositioning and can still be used as it thickens. For a fuller description of instructions and tips  for using Hxtal go to http://hxtal.com.au

Kiln Wash

Kiln Wash also called battwash or shelf primer is used to prevent glass sticking to the kiln shelves it is fired on. It is quite economical and a 5lb bucket of Bullseye primer will coat one hundred and fifty 129 square cm shelves.

The colour of the wash disappears on firing to let you know it has been used. For easy removal we recommend removing and re-coating shelves with every high firing.
