Creative Ceramics Moulds for Fusing, Slumping & Casting

The purpose of this mould is to create a clean and sharp texture in your glass. Ideal for serial work of tiles etc. If you like the fish texture to appear on a slumped bowl, use this texture mould for your first firing cycles, at or close to a fusing temperature. Then slump the glass in a subsequent firing on a shallow slumper, e.g. Flat Slumper - Medium - 28x28x2.5cm - Fusing Mould 958.372.

By cutting the glass smaller than the mould size, you can select specific areas of the mould for a series of slightly varying results. Instead of cutting the glass square try a circular piece instead. Pre-fuse a layer of a light transparent glass onto clear to obtain a colour shading as a result of the varying thickness produced by the texture.

 

Recommended Firing Chart

Please Read: This firing recommendation has been calculated for use with Bullseye glass. Whereas the most typical casting glasses are frit and billets, you can have great results using sheet glass, stringers, rods as well as prefabricated components.

The chart shown below is also based on the assumption that you are using a top fired kiln, e.g. Paragon GL22, GL24, BVD Flat bed kilns etc.

Following this recommended firing chart will lead to a smooth piece of glass with a glossy surface. The finished piece will shrink somewhat, depending on the amount of glass used. Some coldworking on the edges with a diamond pad may be necessary. By lowering the temperature to a sinter firing (approx. 720°C) the piece will shrink less and have a 'sugary' look similar to pâte-de-verre.
