Paw Print Casting Mold

Paw Print Casting Mold

Great Print, April 18, 2015 5 stars
Pros
This is a nice paw print for an accent or even a pendant.
Cons
These molds need careful application of kiln wash or B/N spray. I have had much more success using kiln wash.
Other Thoughts
Brush kiln wash out after 2 uses and reapply. This is a critical step. Also, be sure to make a bit of a well around the frit: mound the frit into the center of the mold. This will help prevent sticking to the mold.

Love this color!, April 18, 2015 5 stars
Pros
This frit gives a nice mottled effect when fused. It gives the effect of being a two toned frit.
Cons
None!
Other Thoughts
The plum striker sheet glass is a solid plum color, but this frit gives the appearance of being two toned.

Perfect Sunflower color, May 29, 2014 5 stars
Pros
I used this glass in a stained glass panel for a sunflower. Perfect color for my project. It is an opal, so it does not let light through, but was perfect for my intended purpose.
Cons

Beautiful Glass!, May 29, 2014 5 stars
Pros
This glass is just beautiful! I had used the regular Woodland Brown, Ivory, Black Streaky before, but was looking for something with more texture. This was perfect to use as the center of a sunflower. I'm anxious to find other uses, but think it would be perfect for 'hiking trails' and other woodsy/ground cover uses in panels. I don't know how this fuses or slumps yet, but will be experimenting soon.
