14 Square Chips and Dip Platter

14" Square Chips and Dip Platter

Item# 810225
Stuck to Glass in Center, January 24, 2010 2 stars
Pros
Love the shape and size of this tray.
Cons
Glass stuck in the middle of the tray. I had thoroughly coated it with four coats of kiln wash. I tried for 30 minutes to get it to release my glass, but middle section of the mold broke and stuck in the indentation of my glass. I had to chisel this section of the mold off of my glass. The good news was my glass tray didn't break and it's beautiful.
Other Thoughts
I'm still perplexed as to why the glass wouldn't release from the middle section. It wasn't for lack of kiln wash, so maybe it was warped in such a way that the glass held on. I really wanted it to work because it's a great shape mold and I hate paying money for something that breaks the first time I use it.

Helpful Hints, November 24, 2008 4 stars
Pros
Potential in this medium is great. It takes quite a learning curve with firing schedules, but once you get through that, it's a lot of fun. Don't give up!
Cons
Need to copy using home laser printer. Professional copiers get too hot. Remove tissue covering you can't really see before copying. Fuse at 1300 if on glass surface; 1450 with cap.
