Create texture and interest in your work with this versatile mould. The mould contains five different leaves.
Use the built in slumper on the mould’s reverse side to make the leaves really lifelike. The leaves can then be incorporated into your piece to give an added dimension.
The leaves hold 2, 3, 4, 5, and 7 grams of frit.
When filling the mould, pile the frit in a pyramid or dome shape so the centre of the mould is filled higher than the edges. This helps the correct flow of glass during firing, lowering the risk of the glass 'grabbing' the mould sides as it fires:

The mould is 10.5cm x 20cm x 3.25cm (4” x 7.75” x 1.25”).
We strongly recommend using ZYP Boron Nitride Spray with our casting moulds for the very best results. Primo Primer can also be used. Standard shelf primer is not suitable.
Please note that all our moulds are hand-made and therefore the dimensions may vary slightly from those shown. Mould manufacturers allow a tolerance of up to 2cm.
All our moulds are designed for multiple use and with care should last for many firings.
