@ Colour de Verre has a very helpful tip sheet for creating their snowflakes. If you are following along with their firing schedules but still getting sharp burrs,there are a few possible culprits. Most commonly, they are caused by the firing temperature being a bit too high - not all kilns heat the same and evenly, so you may need to reduce the top temperature to work in your kiln. Additionally, some artists find they get the best results by trying to fill the molds so that it is heaped in the center. To do this, you can fill the mold evenly, then gently use a brush to move the frit at the edges of the design, piling it into the center of each area. Hopefully these tips help, the Colour de Verre project guide can be found at https://images.delphiglass.com/assets/Snowflake PDF-219720.pdf
Does anyone have an answer for this? I have destroyed 3 molds, have glass stuck in two more. I followed all the directions using the recommended primer.
