Product Description

exclusive An Excellent Way to Use Up Scrap Glass
Stack your fusible scrap glass into this exclusive pot melt mold to create dramatic one-of-a-kind marbled glass. Place the mold on top of kiln posts and dams inside the kiln. Once hot, the glass will flow out of this mold and onto a kiln shelf that you place below. Durable ceramic molds measures 6-1/2" wide by 2-1/2" deep. Includes Delphi Tips and instruction sheet. To learn more about setting up your Pot Melt Mold, watch the video "How to Set Up a Pot Melt", or find other valuable fusing tips on Art Glass TV.  A Delphi Exclusive.
 

Step-By-Step: How to Make a Pot Melt
1. On a level, kiln washed shelf, elevate the Pot Melt Mold on a combination of kiln posts and dams, making sure the hole(s) in the mold are unobstructed. 2. Fill your mold with compatible fusible glass. 3. Fuse, making sure that your glass reaches the maximum temperature to enable the molten glass to flow out of the mold leaving behind as little glass as possible helping to prevent the mold from thermal shocking. 4. Display your one-of-a-kind pot melt creation, or continue creating by slumping, cold-working, or cutting up your pot melt to use in other fused projects.

For complete instructions and tips view the User Manual shown with the additional images.

Tips on Using Pot Melt Molds
  • Make sure the kiln shelf you use is pre-washed, completely dry and level in your kiln.
  • Experiment using different slumping molds instead of kiln shelves to melt glass onto. The glass will take the shape and texture of the mold you choose.
  • There is no way to get all of the glass out of the mold. However if you layer clear in the bottom first with your colors on top you'll have less mixing of colors when you do a new project.
  • Not intended for use in table top kilns.

  •   Another great item!

Pros : Love that the holes are big enough to allow the glass to flow. Holds 3 lbs of glass without problems!
Cons :
Other Thoughts : My kiln is 6" deep. This pot would fit better if it were slightly shorter and bigger around, but that's a personal preference, not a "con". It fit ok, but it was nervously close to the elements by the time I got it propped on the stilts and the support. Just made sure my pieces were cut short enough that they didn't poke out of the top. Overall, awesome product, and I still gave it 5 stars!

When and how did you get started in stained glass? Ive been interested in stained glass for as long as I can remember. As a child, I would sit in churches and watch the (often) biblical depictions come to life when a stray ray of sunlight cast its illumination our way. Sun shadows dancing. I dabbled in many media over the years, trying to find an outlet for some of the visions careening inside, but none of them took. Drawing, painting - even watercolours - no amount of professional training could guide my hand in a satisfactory way. But then there was the glass. I lived abroad for a few years, and wound my way through Europe on my way back to the States when I finished my Peace Corps Service. My last international destination was Paris, where one of my closest friends lives as an organist. Two beautiful autumn

Chances are, right now, in reading this blog post, youre avoiding an overdue task. I too was avoiding a laundry list of work-related tasks in writing this. Procrastination is a part of life, and its certainly always been a part of mine. As a teenager, my parents would accuse me of putting off everything from piano practice to math homework. Id vehemently deny their charges hissing back, I work better under pressure. The truth was, I often felt overwhelmed, under-productive and anxious. Over the years, Ive been able to combat my avoidance issues using 4 tools. The trick is constantly reminding myself of these actions, because they do not come naturally to me. 1. Just Say No. I say yes to everything. Need someone to head up that event? Sure. Want me to design 12 posters for the Car Wash? No problem. Take your kid to daycare? Of course.
