Default Dicer Extract on beADS

I was given 3 jars of dichro extract to try out. I thought I would see if anyone has experience with it since it's super expensive and I don't want to waste it. Thanks

Less is more. It can be encased or left on the surface.

Those are tasty!


I assume this is the stuff that will burn off in the flame if it even gets looked at funny and comes in these micro miniature tiny thimble sized containers.

I can't answer on specific colors but you can buy it from most of your regular dichro or fusing retailers. Just search "Extract". I own Cyan/Copper for gold sparkle only so far. It's made by CBS so it is the best of the best.

I's ungodly expensive ($35 for an 1/8 of a sheet's worth) but it is da bomb and as Mina said ... it does handle heat pretty well. Better than some of the "cheaper" dichro manufactures that turn to ash if you look at them straight on.
