Mold Making Materials
for Glass with Gil
Reynolds March 16-19, 2018
day class is a survey covering all of the primary (and unusual) molds material
that can be used by glass artists. It
will cover the metals, refractories, ceramic fibers, sands, clays, gypsum cements
and the hybrids such as harder glass, soft bricks and Cast-o-Lot. The four ways to shape glass in a kiln will
be analyzed with lots of tips and tricks for each method. Once we know which shaping
method is optimum for a project, we can decide on the best mold material to use.
You will leave with an understanding of the techniques needed to work with each
mold material as well as their advantages and disadvantage. This class is for
all levels but, it might be too intense for beginners. The more you know
already, the more you will get out of this class. Although we will be making
glass projects during class, the emphasis is going to be on techniques rather
than finished products. This is not a good class to take if you just want to
make a pretty slumped project. We have other classes for that.
