12-1/4 x 8 Wave Platter Mold

12-1/4" x 8" Wave Platter Mold

Item# 7461
Solid and Unique, August 9, 2012 4 stars
Pros
Slumps well, curves stay true, perfect size for party trays. I like how well defined the borders are.
Cons
Sensitive to Slump temp changes. I wouldn't recommend this mold to a beginner- the deepest part is difficult to slump into fully.
Other Thoughts
Must put on stilts. This piece is nearly solid underneath.

Unusual Glass!, August 9, 2012 5 stars
Pros
lots of different color combos, quality glass, really eye popping pieces can be made
Cons
Don't buy multiple packs hoping for variety. My friends and I ordered several each over 3 months. We all got exactly the same pack each time. Usually has 2 that are really murky (like chocolate with slate blue swirl)
Other Thoughts
Great value and fast way to add variety to your collection. I found pieces made from this glass sold quickly.

Versatile Mold, August 9, 2012 4 stars
Pros
Really makes those folds with a solid base. I found that even small feet under it allowed enough airflow as it's hollow. Tends to leave some shine on the inside.
Cons
difficult to melt all the way to the bottom- your pieces will not be as large as the mold without stilts under it.
Other Thoughts
Use lots of kiln wash. Varying the temp of your slump radically changes how it drapes. I find that a total plus!

Great for Small Projects, August 9, 2012 4 stars
Pros
A lot of paper for the price, all bullseye, stays clean in resealable bag.
Cons
not perfectly cut, was cut by hand. Not all sheets exactly 10". Mine got folded in shipping and every piece had a tear at the center- I think that was unusual though.

No Variety and Badly Chipped, August 1, 2011 2 stars
Pros
Had 2 pieces of specialty glass.
Cons
Both were chipped as they apparently moved around in the vacuum pack. 3 of the pieces were the same color.
