Actually, it doesn't slide but it can goop up on one side if you don't keep it level or try to add powder twice. So be sure to heat it thoroughly the first time and get it in the powder really quickly. And heat only *just* until the powder is melted, NOT longer. Lopsided mushroom looking brads are not cute.
