@JanneRochlin I'm glass you were able to locate the Colour De Verre fill weights on our web page. That said, the Poppy molds that you purchased were made by Creative Paradise and that is why the fill weight for the large poppy isn't working for you. You can find the project guide for the Poppy molds that you purchased by clicking on the link in the product description for either one of these molds. I have e-mailed you a copy as well. Thank you being a part of!

I bought both the large and the small poppy molds. The fill weights are 19 ounces for the large and 10 ounces for the small. The small one came out just fine. But I have made two large ones with 19 ounces each and each came out with holes in them. The first with a large hole which I filled with frit, covered with a dragonfly casting and soft fused. It looks alright but I have lost some of the sharp detail. The second had a smaller hole which I covered with some small leaf casting and I am tack fusing. It will be ready tonight. Since I am following weights and the fusing schedules that came with the molds, why is this happening? What can I do to correct it?

I purchased a celtic cross mold from delphi. It did not come with fill weight. I'm new to hot glass and am the sure how to proceed. Thanks for any help anyone can give.

@Cheryl D. The freezer might be your answer! Place in there for several hours and then pound face down. Unfortunately with casting molds, sometimes the glass will find a nook or cranny not completely coated and it will grab on and wreck your mold!

I purchased some of these molds. The first try I put 5 coats of kiln wash on the mold, measured the frit and fired it with the pre set on my kiln. I'm not sure if it was exactly what was on the mold instructions, but when it was complete my glass was stuck in the mold. Can you tell me what to do to get it out without breaking my mold? I thought I might put it back into the kiln, heat it up and see if I can unmold it. Or even put it into the kiln upside down and hope the glass falls out.
