Product Description

This unique mold makes it easy to create pattern bars and thick fused glass. Simply layer glass slightly higher than the mold (glass will compress when firing) and fuse. Coat with casting primer before use. Durable ceramic molds from Creative Paradise can be used many times. Interior measures 6" x 2-1/2" x 1" deep.

Step-By-Step: Pattern Bar Necklace
Step 1. Cut up small pieces of your favorite glass or use scrap glass to create a base layer.
Step 2. Use long strips of fiber felt (item#4824) to create the channels. Fill around the fiber with scrap glass.
Step 3. Fuse in kiln. Use a tool like the Super Slicer (item#57108) to cut the glass into pattern bars.
Step 4. Fire polish in kiln. Thread a necklace through the exposed channel. Wear your creation proudly!

Pros : A smaller mold is good as I can't use all the product of many larger molds.
Cons : You must use Fiber Paper - 1/4 inch and bended around corners or the glass will be extremely difficult to get out.
Other Thoughts : I also have had problems getting thin enough slices. I use a tile saw for most patterns because the Taurus 'balks' and these slices are pretty thick..

Pros : Well made mold. I own two and fire them frequently. No problems. I use regular HotLine shelf separator because the large flat surfaces don't merit using boron nitrate.
Cons : Wash can get scratched off if you're not careful loading the mold. It can be difficult to determine the fill amount if you're not used to this style of fusing.
Other Thoughts : If loading with scrap in particular I suggest small L-shaped pieces of fiber paper in the corners or along the edges.

Pros : The mold is easy to use however, it takes some practice to get the complete full fuse on a piece.
Cons : Determining how much to add to without making a piece too heavy to wear when cut into slices. Can get costly when adding dichroic glass to it.
