I bought one of those small round caboshon molds, it has 6 depressions in it. I am really a newbie with fusing, and am confused as how I use this. First I’ll tell you what I know, the mold has to be coated with release. Now for what I don’t know, how much larger do I need to cut the glass for it to slump into the mold? Can I use 2 layers? Will the bottom of the mold be the top of the cab? Thanks for your help. Pam
I use frit with a mold like that; I haven’t tried putting in layers of glass circles to slump or larger scrap to melt together. With the frit, the bottom of the mold is the bottom of the cab. I fill the depressions with frit and sometimes add smaller scraps of dichroic, stringer, etc to the top of the “pile” and the cab rounds over pretty nicely during the fusing.
