Just wanted to post a pic of some of the beads I've made with the samples. Unfortunately the two still on mandrels seem likely to stay that way, I've tried every trick, vinegar, freezer, pliers even a hammer with no luck at getting them off!

You go on the frit girl website under iron mountain blends and shop for the BOC samples - they will come up in the drop down for frit jar size, then just add them to your cart. They are free, you just pay the shipping, when they come you use them to make beads for BOC and then you have to mail them back to Leslie. She will photograph them and give them to BOC.

And if you look on the left hand menu, you will see some more information as well as a gallery of beads people have sent in, some of them with information on base glass, etc. (I didn't think to do that for mine, sorry to say)

I've received my frit and am looking forward to making my beads. Windy though and I have to wait for calmer days.

Dayna those are very nice!

Those beads are wonderful!!! My sister taught me a great trick for getting recalcitrant beads off mandrels: Get a riveting tool from your local hardware store and insert the mandrel in instead of the rivet. Gently start to apply pressure with the handle - it slowly either pushes the bead off of the mandrel or winds up breaking it if it was glassed-on to the steel.

Remember, any frit that contains lead (rakus...) need to be encased....

Yes, thanks for asking. It has Raku in it, which needs encasing. I'm going back & putting notices on the encasable frits. Thanks for asking Dayna!!!

Ok, gave it more thought and I will send the beads anyway, if you let Boc know they could still use them for the sibling or parents program

Thanks Dayna! Yes, please send them. You're right - even if the kids cant use them they can use them for their other programs, even fundraisers. I send them all of my frit test beads.

Sorry not to get back to you right away!
