Product Description

exclusive An Excellent Way to Use Up Scrap Glass
Stack your fusible scrap glass into this exclusive pot melt mold to create dramatic one-of-a-kind marbled glass. Place the mold on top of kiln posts and dams inside the kiln. Once hot, the glass will flow out of this mold and onto a kiln shelf that you place below. Durable ceramic molds measures 6-1/2" wide by 2-1/2" deep. Includes Delphi Tips and instruction sheet. To learn more about setting up your Pot Melt Mold, watch the video "How to Set Up a Pot Melt", or find other valuable fusing tips on Art Glass TV.  A Delphi Exclusive.
 

Step-By-Step: How to Make a Pot Melt

 
step 1
1. On a level, kiln washed shelf, elevate the Pot Melt Mold on a combination of kiln posts and dams, making sure the hole(s) in the mold are unobstructed.
 

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
  • Make sure the kiln shelf you use is pre-washed, completely dry and level in your kiln.
  • 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.

  •   Wasn't sure, but this is great!
By on
Pros : The single hole is deceiving, I initially thought I would get a muddy color in my glass, quite the reverse, I have a beautiful swirled effect in a beautiful sheet that I can slump or a perfect circle. This is a handy tool to have in any glass makers tool box.
Cons : I have not found any yet. One practice and I got it perfectly right. My products look professional are orignal and I cannot find anything to call a con.

Pros : Have had some amazing results. No cracking problems
Cons : None Yet!
Other Thoughts : Have followed directions (side fire) explicitly. Could be top firing cause breakage?

  •   Very disappointed
By on
Pros : This looked like a great way to use up scrap glass and get a cool one of a kind piece of art. It does do that.
Cons : Like the others, my mold cracked, and though I can probably use it again, it is going to have the dark purple glass mixed in with it, so I pretty much have to use that color in some way. The directions are rather poor. They do not mention the "stem" you get that connects the mold to the puddle of glass. I had to fuse three times to get the stem thin enough to cut. I was worried about breaking the mold, but later noticed it had cracked anyhow.
Other Thoughts : I agree using a flowerpot makes a lot more economic sense. I like the glass, but the mold isn't practical. I have the other two and will likely return them for something more useful.
