4 Butterfly Casting Mold

4" Butterfly Casting Mold

A favorite, May 30, 2018 5 stars
Pros
Great detail, excellent size.
Cons
Need to experiment to get the right firing schedule for optimal thinness. I don't measure but mine run about 2.3 grams @ 1400 top temp.
Other Thoughts
I prefer thin butterflies with a lot of powdered frit details. Take care with metal inclusions. The wing attachment to the body is very thin. A better design is a strip of clear glass w/ little bit of fiber paper to make the hole for the hanger.

DSG Lead free solder review, October 25, 2015 5 stars
Pros
Easy to use, superior control of decorative solder, better after shine on silver, does not easily tarnish (unlike lead - can leave it covered in flux and in a humid workshop for days w/o change- can then pick right up and finish decorative solder, takes copper patina as if I were soldering with pure copper. Lead free.
Cons
Would love to see the price come down and the availability go up.

Youghiogheny Autumn Gold, Yellow, and Green Mottled

Item# YLABC
Review, August 25, 2015 4 stars
Pros
Stunning Glass, many compliments on just the glass . Looks great as is w/o back lighting - glows with just the slightest back light.
Cons
Doesn't cut as well as others by Youghiogheny. micro fractures unpredictably. Still I look forward to using it again.
Other Thoughts
Worth the effort but be prepared for "design improvements"
