And that most tragic cry, “Help, my glass is stuck it the mold!” Casting is different from other forms of working with warm glass, with its own tricks and techniques.

  •   Craft time too short
By on
Pros : Great instruction. Learned a LOT about how to care for and properly coat molds prior to using. Get to keep mold after piece completed.
Cons : 1 1/2hr talking and only 1/2 hr working on project. Truly it didn't take long after we started, but the "fun" part was over before I knew it.
Other Thoughts : I love my pendant, but would have liked more craft time. In future recommend maybe allow two pieces per person.
