Well I broke my bead while buffing but here are some pics and info
The Bead is/was 3/4 inch in diameter
Ok So the wax dipped cotton ball worked like a charm .
the last layer of cotton ball came out in almost a sheet. it still took about 15 minutes to pick out the most of the core cotton.
all the cotton pulled away with the wax!! no fibers left behind
In the picture witn the large cracked hole the spotty white is just wax residue . im sure a hot water soak and a Q-tip would easily get it out.
I wasnt real happy with the clearness or the translucent pardo - but i used clay that had been chopped up and reconditioned so it may have worked air into it
for how thin i sanded it the bead was quite hard. Until my buffer threw it against the wallMess Up Fess Up
