Default what mold release wax do you use

I have a few fiber glass parts to make and I normally use Part All mold release wax. The problem is this wax is so hard to remove! I have only use part all so I don't know if there is something easier to apply/remove??? I was looking at TR Industries wax, any suggestions??
thanks chris

Hi i prefer specialityproducts Honey Wax,its very soft and works very well indeed in fact its the best ive ever tried including tr wax.It cleans off easy too.I love the way it goes on as its very soft and not dry like some other waxes.

Don't use PVA....that stuff just screws up the finish. With at least 10-15 coats of wax, you will not need it. I used to use Partall, until I realized I was wasting my time with it.

I agree 100% with that,you will end up with a dull finish using pva.Im finding on a new mould i use arround 10 coats of wax then after each part made i rewax using 3 coats and never had a part stick.
