Will this mould fit in my kiln?

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.

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:

Filling a glass casting mould

Warm Glass TipWe recommend a fill weight of 45g, fine frit. The heart in the image was made using Red Transparent Fine Frit 1122.01, but other colours such as Erbium Pink Tint (1821.01) and Aqua Blue Tint (1808.01) would also work very nicely.

Firing Schedule:

This schedule is a guideline and you should adjust it to suit your particular kiln, or for different thicknesses of glass. By lowering the temperature to 720°C the piece will shrink less and have a rougher ‘Sugary’ look:

Segment Rate (C/hr) Temp. Hold
1 222C 677C :60
2 333C 804C :10
3 999 482C 1:20/2:00
4 18C 427C :00
5 35C 377C :00

Similar frit casting moulds to try are Heart Mould 8003, Beach Shells Mould and Blossom Mould.?

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.
