Product Description

exclusive Try All 3 Pot Melt Molds
Stack your fusible scrap glass into an exclusive pot melt mold to create dramatic one-of-a-kind marbled glass. Once hot, the glass flows out of the mold and onto the 1/8" fiber paper protecting your kiln shelf. The custom 7" x 14" durable ceramic support perfectly fits pot melt molds. Included 2" kiln posts are the ideal height for use in the Delphi EZ-Pro 15-6 kiln or larger studio kilns. Durable ceramic pot melt molds measures 6-1/2" wide by 2-1/2" deep, you get all four styles shown below. Also includes Delphi Tips and instruction sheet. Click on "View Product Video" to learn more about setting up your pot melt. A Delphi Exclusive.

See how it works (images below):
1. Place 1/8" fiber paper on level kiln shelf. Elevate pot melt support with kiln posts. Place pot melt mold in support.
2. Fill your mold with compatible fusible glass.
3. Fuse, making sure that your glass reaches the maximum temperature to enable the molten glass to flow out of the mold leaving behind as little glass as possible helping to prevent the mold from thermal shocking.
4. Display your one-of-a-kind pot melt creation, or continue creating by slumping, cold-working, or cutting up your pot melt to use in other fused projects.

Tips on Using Pot Melt Molds

  • Work on a level kiln shelf.
  • Do NOT kiln wash pot melt molds.
  • Experiment using different slumping molds instead of kiln shelves to melt glass onto. The glass will take the shape and texture of the mold you choose.
  • There is no way to get all of the glass out of the mold. However if you layer clear in the bottom first with your colors on top you'll have less mixing of colors when you do a new project.
  • Not intended for use in table top kilns.

  •   happy to be able to do pot melts in small kiln
By on
Pros : The biggest advantage of this kit is that it´s sized to fit in a smaller kiln, one to which I have an equivalent. there´s not enough height in it to rig the pot melt with ordinary pots
Cons : I do agree with others that the pots are very expensive
Other Thoughts : My single hole pot broke too, but I used it anyway since the construction with pot stand allowed me to just piece it all together again. Used it several times since, no problems. With such a small kiln as I have, don´t expect those mega cool mega swirly pot melts. You will get some very pretty and unique art glass though :) . If using bullseye glass - read the charts concerning which glasses might react to another and you can avoid swamp colored glass if you don´t want it.

  •   Waste of Money
By on
Pros : Works well, once.
Cons : After the first use, and removing from kiln all was well. 12 hours later picked up the pot to do another melt and the bottom broke completely off the pot. Total waste of money!
Other Thoughts : This had not been removed from the kiln prior to reaching room temp; one contained about 2 lbs of glass for the first melt. I am extremely upset with the fact that a pot can only be used for one melt. I would not recommend anyone purchasing this item. No stars would have been my choice here.

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.
