Thoughts on how to transition from the frame nuc to top-bar warre hive?  Suggestions...  Holy water?

Plunger, no.   Cut and paste.

Take a knife and cut out the comb and glue with wax or tie it up with string or use rubber bands to attact the comb to the top bar.    Like a cut out.

The traditional method, documented at least as far back as Huber's book in the late 1700s and Langstroths first book in the 1800s, is to do a cutout.
