Product Description

Inspired by the iconic maple tree of North America, this large northwoods maple leaf creates a finished piece measuring 7-1/2" x 9-1/2". The maple leaf has a bonus, on the mold's reverse side there is a slumping surface on which cast leaves can be turned into perfect salad plates. Or if you prefer, use the 10" Bowl Slump Form (item # 77849) to create sweet dessert bowls. Three, five, or more Maple Leaves can be grouped, tacked together, and slumped to form large, decorative platters and dramatic vessels or wall art. The mold itself measures 9" x 11". The fill weight is 300 to 320 grams.

Pros : Shape and size are perfect at approx. 9" x 7" for a finished leaf. By changing the colors you can achieve a variety of looks. Can be draped or slumped on other molds- just check visually and Skip Step when desired. Glass remains thin and does not draw in too much during firing. Veins are very detailed and natural looking. The slumping side creates a defined leaf plate, which is perfect as a dessert plate or hors d'oeuvre tray. This is one of my favorite molds.
Cons : None so far. I really love it.
Other Thoughts : The pdf file associated with the mold recommends using black powder for the veins. This is okay, but a mixture of black and brown produces more natural looking results.
