How to remove an opal off a dop stick

Episode 6 - How to remove an opal of a dop stick

Extra tips and key points:

- Place dop stick and opal into freezer for 5-10 minutes, which makes the wax go brittle.

- Gently with a sharp, thin, Stanley knife, cut in between in the wax and opal and the opal should pop off with minimal wax.

- If cutting the back of the opal, use the same dob stick, as it will have the right amount of wax and generally in the shape you require. Redop as per our dopping video, which can be found here, 'How to dop up an opal ready to be cut'.
