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.
