    Next time start using regular paste wax , let it dry and wipe it off . On a new mold you might want to do this a few times .
    Use lacquer thinner or acetone on a rag to remove the wax from your blank . Dont forget to rewax it when your ready to use it again as this removes all the wax . Rick

    rick thanks for the info. I used cement for the mold and that is the reason I used paraffin wax instead of paste wax but the releases have gone well I will try your advise thanks tom
