Product Description

Colour de Verre molds are the simple way to cast glass. Merge the age-old art of pate de verre glass casting with modern technology and contemporary design! Create pieces that are beautiful enough to stand alone or to incorporate into larger projects. The open, hollow design promotes even heating and cooling. Molds can be filled with glass frit, powder, or sheet glass.

Create life-like twigs to incorporate with floral art castings into a larger design. Branches combined with flowers and leaves or pine cones and needles look incredible (see project images below). On the back of the mold is a slumper that makes the castings three-dimensional, just like real twigs. Mold measures 5" x 8-3/4" x 1-1/4". Twig designs hold 7, 23, and 32 grams of frit. Longer branches measure 5-1/2" long, the shorter branch measures 3" long. Delphi recommends a firing temperature of 1350ºF for 96 COE and 1375ºF for 90 COE. See size perspective of mold with quarter and dime images shown.

Pros : Love this mold. From branches (brown) use blue for waterways, flower colors to create fields of flowers. Great accent mold to fuse in with your favorite pieces!
Cons : Wish there was a bigger one of these so you can make more at one time. Guess I will just order another for now!

When and how did you get started in stained glass? Ive been interested in stained glass for as long as I can remember. As a child, I would sit in churches and watch the (often) biblical depictions come to life when a stray ray of sunlight cast its illumination our way. Sun shadows dancing. I dabbled in many media over the years, trying to find an outlet for some of the visions careening inside, but none of them took. Drawing, painting - even watercolours - no amount of professional training could guide my hand in a satisfactory way. But then there was the glass. I lived abroad for a few years, and wound my way through Europe on my way back to the States when I finished my Peace Corps Service. My last international destination was Paris, where one of my closest friends lives as an organist. Two beautiful autumn
