Description
 

The brand new M35 – Starfire Drape Mold is a breakthrough in mold design. Build by Gil Reynolds, this mold allows you to make fluted shapes that resemble blown glass right in your own kiln. Made of industrial grade ceramics, the M35 is designed for a long firing life. Just coat with shelf primer or boron nitrite spray, elevate slightly off of the kiln floor with kiln posts or fiber paper for circulation, place your glass on top and you are ready to go. The mold measures 11.5" x 3.75".

Pictured is a single layer 15” diameter circle of System 96 #532-1FS Caribbean Blue decorated with piping lines made with a mixture of Fuse Master Liquid Stringer Medium (2 tbs.), Clear System 96 Powder (2 tbs.) and Fuse Master LO – 05 Black Enamel (1/4 tsp.). The piping was applied to side “A” then fired flat at 400 DPH to 1350F./ 750C. for 15 minutes. Once it was cool, more piping was applied to the edge of side “B” and the very edge itself. It was then placed with side ”A” down on the M35 mold (elevated 4”) and fired at 300 DPH to 1220F. / 660C. for 13 minutes.

Because the 15” piece of glass is larger than the mold, if you over bend it, the glass will fall under the edge and pinch the mold. If that does happen, you can turn the mold upside down and re-fire just enough for the glass to fall away from the mold slightly. If the glass starts out 12” in diameter or smaller, you don’t have to worry about over bending.
