Product Description

Create beautiful bouquets and show stopping garden accents! Net Leaf Vein Mold forms a lovely leaf pattern on glass when it is fired. Ceramic molds can be fired many times. Must be kiln washed before use. Measures 8-3/4" x 8-3/4".

To add even more depth to your leaves try the following techniques:

  • Use iridized glass, place the iridized coating side down on the mold (as shown in the first picture below).
  • Sprinkle powdered frit into the veins of the mold (the glass will pick up the frit during the fusing process).
  • Or as an additional firing, use glass paint to add contrast. You can even add a splash of glitz with Gold Firing Pen #5175G.
For tips on getting the most out of your texture molds and for firing schedules view "Creating with Texture Molds" project guide shown with additional images.

Pros : This mold gives a very deep and detailed impression in the glass. You can flip and fill the main stem and veins with powered glass for even more detail
Cons : It would have been nice to have some undulation for more natural looking leaves with having to slump into shape in a second firing

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.
