Slumping considerations

You don’t say what kind of glass you are slumping, what thickness it might be, the depth or shape of the mould.

Generally you want a low temperature slump to avoid changing the carving.  Spectrum and Bullseye can be slumped at about 620C.  Float will require about 650-670.  In both cases you have to keep checking to determine when the glass has completed its slump.
