Steel rods in high fire kiln?

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I make glass beads and also make pottery.  For the glass bead making we use stainless steel rods coated with bead release when forming the beads with a torch.

What I am wondering is-- if I coat the steel rods with bead release can I use them for firing beads in a cone 6 electric  kiln?

I see that people talk about using Kathal wire but I am wanting something that will be thicker and bend less.

Any advice you can give regarding glazing beads in cone 6 environment would be welcome.
