Hi I am trying to replace old shades from wall lghts.
They look like a bowl shape that has been cut in half.
I have cut a 30cm circle and cut in half and made design,I am than going to fuse on full.
But cant think of a way to get shape,if I drape over round mould it will full down,if I sump it wont be deep enougth 8cm at top where bulb is a have a curve mould but it makes the bottom to wide to fit into clips.
Any sugestions thanks.July 20, 2013 at 3:54 am #13015wordanaParticipant
If I understand your request, take a look at Bulleye’s sconce drap molds:
They have several sizes.

Hi thanks for reply,unfortunatly this mould would not fit into my kiln as it is internaly only 15inc x 15inc
The only way I can think of is to slump into bowl shape and put kiln fibre inbetween pieces!
If I had thought a bit more I would have cut a complete circle and slump as bowl than cut in half with tile saw.July 21, 2013 at 12:26 pm #13017wordanaParticipant
If you look around on Bullseye’s web site, you’ll see they have a couple of different versions of their lamp bender mold, including a “mini” lamp bender:
