Make elegant centrepieces with this striking maple leaf mould from Colour De Verre.
The fired piece can be cast thicker to produce functional ware or try Colour De Verre's Wafer-Thin technique to create beautiful delicate art pieces. See the handy PDF tipsheets for full details on how to use this mould.
Fill with oranges, reds, tangerines and yellows to create autumn leaves or use greens to create new leaves of spring. Flip the mould over to discover the custom slumping surface that shapes the cast leaves into plates.
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.
Finished Pieces: 24cm x 19cm length
Fill Weight: 300g to 320g in frit.
External Mould Dimensions: 28 x 23cm
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:
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.
