Creative Ceramics Moulds for Fusing, Slumping & Casting
This flat casting mould will result in a decorative finished glass object or a component to be further used in fused or cast work.
The 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 rougher ‘Sugary’ look similar to pâte-de-verre.
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.
