Product Description

Versatile vermiculite board can be cut and sanded just like wood. The board is extremely heat resistant (up to 2012° F) and has many applications.

  • Use to build a reusable mold box for casting.
  • Use as kiln shelving. Delphi Tip: support the board well with short kiln posts and use fiber paper on top of the board to prevent sticking.
  • Use to create custom molds like drop rings. Delphi Tip: cover with fiber paper before slumping.
  • Use for back up kiln insulation. The combination of rigidity and resistance to heat makes vermiculite board excellent for this application.

  •   Great for drop-outs
By on
Pros : Easy to cut and shape, sands down well, holds up well after firing, and won't stick to the glass. I used this product to make a drop-out mold for use with a thick pot melt disk. It holds weight and leaves a clean surface. I was able to bevel the sides of the hole I cut in the board and sand them smooth for a nice finish. Quick and easy.
Cons : As expected, upon firing the board produces quite an odor. Ventilation is a must for safety.
Other Thoughts : This is a great product for making custom shapes without a lot of fuss.

How and when did you get started in glass art? I saw an article about Kristin Frantzen-Orr along with a step by step example of how to do one of her famous floral beads. I talked about it so much my husband bought me a beginning torch set for the following Christmas. Once I got the kiln and the duel fuel torch, I just kept experimenting and growing from there. Kristin is still my idol and I keep telling myself that one day I will do nice, clean floral beads like hers. Your jewelry, vases, plates etc. are all beautiful. I especially love the geologic nature of your Copper Reactive dish, its so unique. Can you tell us a little about how you achieved that look? The base glass is Bullseye Steel Blue Opal (000146) and it reacts all on its own. I used clear stringers and broke up chunks

We tell ourselves not to judge a book by its cover, but the simple truth is, we are attracted to whats attractive. On a recent hunt for a birthday present for my mother, I came across several beautiful handbags in several different boutiques. What ultimately influenced my final purchase decision was the complimentary gift-wrapping offered by one of the storeowners. The handbag itself wasnt any prettier or better quality than the others I was considering, but the packaging was beautiful. Brightly colored tissue, a big sturdy box, quality wrapping paper and an oversized hand-tied bow. No, it wasnt sealed with a kiss, rather a large gold embossed sticker with the boutique name and logo (theres nothing wrong with a little discreet self-promotion). Here are a few tips for better packaging-it might just buy you your next customer. 1. Show your customers what theyll get. The boutique I mentioned earlier had

Delphi merchandiser Kayleigh McGrath recently shared some photos from her early days at Delphi. She was playing around with different colors and textures of glass and learning the hard way that there are limits to what you can do (and cant do) in fusing. The first image shows what happened when Kayleigh layered dichroic glass, coating to coating. The base is 90 COE dichroic rainbow pixi stix on black, (Delphi item 921714) and the top is an old texture we dont carry any more (cyan red radium on clear.) The second image is of a piece Kayleigh loved so much she impatiently removed it from the kiln when it was still too hot (havent we all done this. ) As you can see, it suffered thermal shock. This was made with the same 90 COE pixi stix on black for the base and capped with Delphi item U630090 90 COE
