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.

With five different leaves on one side, and a slumper on the other, you can create wonderfully realistic floral projects. Mold measures 4" x 7-3/4" x 1-1/4". Leaves hold 2, 3, 4, 5, and 7 grams of frit and measure approximately 2-3/8" x 1-3/8". Delphi recommends a firing temperature of 1325°F for 96 COE and 1350°F for 90 COE. For spectacular results, use Leaves with Branches Mold #77863 and Blossoms Mold #77819 (project image shown in additional images). See size perspective of mold with quarter and dime images shown.

  •   Small leaf assortment casting & slumping mold
By on
Pros : I found these molds easy to use, and don't bother with the special mold release.
Cons : They are hard to clean
Other Thoughts : You can also just cut out leaf shapes from glass and mold the veining into the glass, which I actually prefer to casting the frit. You can get a thinner leaf, more options (like irid or dicro) and more consistent results.

  •   Another Versatile Mold
By on
Pros : Yields good leaf components to use with the other Colour de Verre flower molds. To really use these molds, you need to buy Jayne Persico's book on Glass Kiln Casting. I really only got into these molds after I took a class with Jayne, and she showed us some examples of what you can do with the molds.
Cons : You have to follow the directions carefully. Each mold has specific directions for fill weights that require a digital kitchen scale, and a specific type of primer for the mold (Hot Line Primo primer). To use the mold, you also need to have these other supplies/tools on hand and follow the firing instructions given.

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

Chances are, right now, in reading this blog post, youre avoiding an overdue task. I too was avoiding a laundry list of work-related tasks in writing this. Procrastination is a part of life, and its certainly always been a part of mine. As a teenager, my parents would accuse me of putting off everything from piano practice to math homework. Id vehemently deny their charges hissing back, I work better under pressure. The truth was, I often felt overwhelmed, under-productive and anxious. Over the years, Ive been able to combat my avoidance issues using 4 tools. The trick is constantly reminding myself of these actions, because they do not come naturally to me. 1. Just Say No. I say yes to everything. Need someone to head up that event? Sure. Want me to design 12 posters for the Car Wash? No problem. Take your kid to daycare? Of course.
