Hi. I tried to make some tealight holders draped over circular shelf posts but they were a disaster! Either they didn’t drape uniformly or they stuck onto the posts. Any help on how to do this successfully would be appreciated.
did you put thin fire under the glass? You need to put a piece of thinfire shelf paper over your mold,and center the glass over that. That will keeps the glass from sticking to the mold, or post in this case. It also gives you the texture in your drape.
I have used little Stainless Steel 4oz sauce cups to drape tealight holders over. They work great and cost about $2 each. Find in any Kitchen store. Put on a cookie sheet, heat in your oven to about 500 degrees and apply kiln wash. This takes awhile as you need to keep reheating and applying to get a nice coat of kiln wash to stick, but I have great success. Made 24 drape molds this way and a batch of votive holders. You can get about 2-3 drape firings out of 1 coating of kiln wash. Good luck
