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.

Reusable mold casts 4 shells from 1-3/8" to 1-1/2" in one firing, for the ultimate in convenience. The fill weights are starfish, 8 grams; scallop, 18 grams; clam, 10 grams; and whelk, 7 grams. The mold measures 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" x 1-1/4". See size perspective of mold with quarter and dime images shown.

We suggest a cooler than usual firing temperature of about 1290-1310ºF (700-710ºC) for COE 96 and 25ºF (10ºC) hotter for COE 90. Click on the User Manual pdf  to download a free, helpful technique sheet.

St. Pete Beach, on the west coast of Florida, has long been recognized for its beautiful beaches and stunning sunsets. Now it will have a new claim to fame - an 8 tall by 20 wide glass mosaic mural created entirely by volunteers from the surrounding communities.

Cheerily nicknamed Momma Mosaics, Charity creates brightly colored art that is whimsical and playful. She has mastered the art of using paper under glass, and repurposing found objects. We caught up with her to ask her a few questions about her signature style. How did you get started in glass? I discovered the joy of glass at the age of 12, when I was introduced to stained glass art by my grandmother. She inspired me to explore my creative side as we worked side-by-side in her tiny basement studio, cutting and grinding pieces for a large window panel. Those lessons in creativity launched my interest in glass art and eventually led me to classes in fusing and mosaics. Why mosaics? Have
