Product Description

exclusive Try All 4 Pot Melt Molds
Stack your fusible scrap glass into an exclusive pot melt mold to create dramatic one-of-a-kind marbled glass. Once hot, the glass flows out of the mold and onto the 1/8" fiber paper protecting your kiln shelf. The custom 7" x 14" durable ceramic support perfectly fits pot melt molds. Included 2" kiln posts are the ideal height for use in the Delphi EZ-Pro 15-6 kiln or larger studio kilns. Durable ceramic pot melt molds measures 6-1/2" wide by 2-1/2" deep, you get all four styles shown below. Also includes Delphi Tips and instruction sheet. Click on "View Product Video" to learn more about setting up your pot melt. A Delphi Exclusive.

See how it works (images below):
1. Place 1/8" fiber paper on level kiln shelf. Elevate pot melt support with kiln posts. Place pot melt mold in support.
2. Fill your mold with compatible fusible glass.
3. Fuse, making sure that your glass reaches the maximum temperature to enable the molten glass to flow out of the mold leaving behind as little glass as possible helping to prevent the mold from thermal shocking.
4. Display your one-of-a-kind pot melt creation, or continue creating by slumping, cold-working, or cutting up your pot melt to use in other fused projects.

Tips on Using Pot Melt Molds

  • Work on a level kiln shelf.
  • Do NOT kiln wash pot melt molds.
  • Experiment using different slumping molds instead of kiln shelves to melt glass onto. The glass will take the shape and texture of the mold you choose.
  • There is no way to get all of the glass out of the mold. However if you layer clear in the bottom first with your colors on top you'll have less mixing of colors when you do a new project.
  • Not intended for use in table top kilns.

  •   happy to be able to do pot melts in small kiln
By on
Pros : The biggest advantage of this kit is that it´s sized to fit in a smaller kiln, one to which I have an equivalent. there´s not enough height in it to rig the pot melt with ordinary pots
Cons : I do agree with others that the pots are very expensive
Other Thoughts : My single hole pot broke too, but I used it anyway since the construction with pot stand allowed me to just piece it all together again. Used it several times since, no problems. With such a small kiln as I have, don´t expect those mega cool mega swirly pot melts. You will get some very pretty and unique art glass though :) . If using bullseye glass - read the charts concerning which glasses might react to another and you can avoid swamp colored glass if you don´t want it.

  •   Waste of Money
By on
Pros : Works well, once.
Cons : After the first use, and removing from kiln all was well. 12 hours later picked up the pot to do another melt and the bottom broke completely off the pot. Total waste of money!
Other Thoughts : This had not been removed from the kiln prior to reaching room temp; one contained about 2 lbs of glass for the first melt. I am extremely upset with the fact that a pot can only be used for one melt. I would not recommend anyone purchasing this item. No stars would have been my choice here.

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
