used for Years, May 13, 2022 5 stars

Small, simple, easy to use

6 Foot Drape Mold

Fancy made easy, February 9, 2013 5 stars
Pros
makes feet for bowls really nicely, slumps beautifully, makes elegant and fancy looking items, but easily
Cons
If you're not careful with centering, the foot can be off, with a lip on one side
Other Thoughts
I love this mold. Absolutely love it. I used it with my 6" drop ring to make candy dishes, and they turn out beautiful.
6 Plate Ring Mold

Good size, February 9, 2013 5 stars
Pros
Good size, takes kiln wash well, like the recessed edge on the inner part
Cons
opening could be larger
Other Thoughts
I use this in conjunction with the 6" foot drape mold to make candy dishes, and I love it. My only complaint is that the opening could be a little bigger, it makes for a smallish dish. Still, I like it quite a bit, and it's easy to use

Perfect Size, February 9, 2013 5 stars
Pros
Perfect size, curve is really nice
Cons
No air holes in the bottom
Other Thoughts
Wonderful small dish, perfect size. I've used it a couple times with no problems. The curve is the right shape to work with my other larger molds, so I have multiple sizes with this curve. I love iy.
9-3/4 Rectangular Sushi Plate

9-3/4" Rectangular Sushi Plate

Smaller Then Expected, November 29, 2012 4 stars
Pros
Is a nice length, and slumps beautifully.
Cons
Needs extra time in the kiln to slump fully, otherwise it rocks back and forth. Not as deep as I thought it would be.
Other Thoughts
This is a great dish, and I've made many 3 part dishes, and used it as a mold to make sauce/tea bag/jewelry holds with. You can use the two ends to make 2 dishes at once. However, I didn't realize how narrow the plate was, or how shallow the dents are. If you're going to order it, sketch out the measurements so you know how big it is, and realize it's only about a half inch deep if you're using 6mm glass.
