  •   Read the directions first!
By on
Pros : Beads are nice size (very small) for what I wanted them for, which was stringing with larger focal beads.
Cons : I did not follow directions closely and suffered the consequences. I didn't measure the frit or use only fine- and medium-sized frit, and the results were wonky-shaped beads. Also did not use either of the two recommended release products, but instead used the kiln wash product my glass teacher uses for all her molds. First time I used the mold, a few beads stuck but were popped out with a sharp tool. Teacher said I did not need to retreat with mold release before reusing molds, and on the second use, half of my tiny beads stuck firmly in mold. Managed to pop one out with a sharp tool and the post popped off too.
Other Thoughts : Delphi has free downloadable tip sheets available in their catalog, mixed in among the molds themselves. I highly recommend them--I could have avoided my grief. I have now ordered a can of MR-97 for my other molds and I'm debating investing replace this nano beads mold.

  •   Overall, compact mold makes nice small beads
By on
Pros : Love the small size of the beads. Mold is compact and can fit into a relatively small kiln. Don't need alot of glass to make the beads.
Cons : Can be difficult to coat the posts of the mold. I suggest using an extra coat of MR-97 to make sure you've coated the posts completely. Directions for the amount of glass given in grams. Wish a measurement cup in grams was included or available for purchase.
Other Thoughts : Overall, I like the mold. The first time I used it one of the square beads stuck at the post. I was able to pop it out with a small tool but the post popped out with it. The rest of the mold is still usable. Despite this, I like the mold and would recommend others to buy it if you want to make small fused glass rings.
