Create beautiful jewellery with this excellent mould. The design is strong enough to stand on its own as a broach or pin or strung together to make a bracelet. This single mould forms six blossoms in three sizes.
They can also be fused or attached to plates, platters, bowls or other castings.
Dimensions are 3/4”, 1” and 1-1/4”.
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.
Fill weight: 6, 8 and 10 grams.
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:
Suggested firing schedule (Bullseye Glass):
Seg 1 195?C/hour to 677?F, Hold 10 min
Seg 2 AFAP to 770-780?C, Hold 10-20 min
Seg 3 AFAP to 482?C (no venting), Hold 30-60 min
Seg 4 (for thicker designs, 1” or more) 33?C/ hour to 370?C, End, Cool kiln no venting
Outer dimensions of mould: 173mm x 130mm (approx.).
Why not also try the small leaf mould in this range?
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.
