  •   Butterfly Texture Mold

Pros : Fused glass using high fire Boron Nitride. Details were perfect. Glass lifted off mold easily.
Cons : The glass removed from the mold easily, however, the deeper parts of the design brought with it some plaster from the mold. I could not remove all of it.
Other Thoughts : I had read somewhere that Boron Nitride was good for texture molds because it allows for better detail on the glass. I don't know if my problem was using BN or just weak pieces of plaster. I did not pre-fire the mold.

  •   Beautiful detail

Pros : Beautiful detail, smooth surface, nice size. Works well with Hotline Primo Primer, and all details stay crisp.
Cons : none
Other Thoughts : Butterfly and grass details can be highlighted after firing the glass with Pebeo paints, and still be food-safe.

Dimensional or 3-D relief in glass art is making a very strong comeback for Fall 2010, and we predict it to be even stronger in 2011.

Once fired and cleaned, castings can be foiled and soldered into panels, lamps and lanterns, added to mosaics, or fired into fused art. Your finished project will have a sculptural look and will showcase your glass art abilities. The deer trophy stained glass panel by artist Teresa Batten is a wonderful example of 3-D castings. Each pinecone has a rich textured surface and adds realistic interpretation to the finished panel. The unique design not only captures the spirit of the piece but also invites the viewer to examine the work from
