  2. foster fire

    Foster FireHeavy Duty bead release is now in the shop.  There are 8oz and 16oz jars in Heavy Duty, which is great for soft and boro glass.  The 8oz jar is £12.60 and the 16oz jar is £24.00.  

    These items are quite heavy, the 8oz is about 500g and the 16oz is about 1000g; I have given the option of choosing second class postage to keep the cost down.  Second class postage for packages only goes up to 1000g; therefore, anything ordered over this weight would have to go as a first class package.  I am looking into using a courier service for heavy orders.
