Thin Fire Paper Removal

I was firing a drape vase and was out of boron nitrate so I placed thin fire over the top of the drape mold, which has worked for me before. This time some of the glass folded around and trapped a tiny piece of thin fire between the layers of the fold. I can’t get all the way down in the fold with a brush and soaking it in water didn’t dissolve it. Anyone know a way to get the thin fire out? Anything that will make it dissolve?

Two things come to mind.
1. There are dental cleaning brushes that are really thin. You might see if one can get down inside, even if you have to make an extension handle for it.
2. You may have fused it between the glass permanently and nothing short of a drill will reach it.April 9, 2019 at 6:10 am #14866ryssmilesParticipant
Thank you. I’ll give it a try.June 14, 2019 at 10:54 pm #14894BindleParticipant
I have a problem, with clear dots, fused but they all have thin fire on the bottom. I’ve made many dots or frit balls, but never had this happen before! I was fusing 96coe, lowered the kiln heat & time. I’ve soaked them in white vinegar, Klear & water with Dawn dish soap added. Still white attached! Anyone with an idea how to remove Thin Fire Paper?August 19, 2020 at 9:21 am #15699
