How to Fuse with Texture Molds
- July 2, 2010 at 1:16 pm #9438glassyParticipant
I have a square flat texture mold. In order to do a project with it must I fuse my glass separately and then place the fired piece on top of the texture mold and fuse the glass again or do I just begin my project by laying the un-fired glass on top of the mold in order to do my initial fuse. Can I tack fuse with this type of mold?
This is my plan:
1. Fuse with the texture mold
2. Slump the piece in to a square mold

I would lay your glass on the textured mold for initial fuse–full fuse so that the glass really sinks into the texture.

I found with my texture molds that the texture only really showed up after a full fuse.February 18, 2011 at 5:53 pm #11664artattackParticipant
Thanks for the advice. My idea was to fire some flower petals, and then use them in a later project, but I am thinking at a full – fuse, they may be mis shapen? what I seem to be reading is that you need the full fuse to get the texture. any ideas?
