Colour de Verre molds are the simple way to cast glass. Merge the age-old art of pate de verre glass casting with modern technology and contemporary design! Create pieces that are beautiful enough to stand alone or to incorporate into larger projects. The open, hollow design promotes even heating and cooling. Molds can be filled with glass frit, powder, or sheet glass.
Create life-like twigs to incorporate with floral art castings into a larger design. Branches combined with flowers and leaves or pine cones and needles look incredible (see project images below). On the back of the mold is a slumper that makes the castings three-dimensional, just like real twigs. Mold measures 5" x 8-3/4" x 1-1/4". Twig designs hold 7, 23, and 32 grams of frit. Longer branches measure 5-1/2" long, the shorter branch measures 3" long. Delphi recommends a firing temperature of 1350ºF for 96 COE and 1375ºF for 90 COE. See size perspective of mold with quarter and dime images shown.
