Stainless Steel Sheet for making molds
- February 2, 2011 at 5:16 am #9555
Hi, I have a question for you Paul, I want to make a few Stainless Steel molds but I need
to know what thickness it should be. I know some kitchen cabinet makers use it around sinks
but it could be too thick. Also, what do you use to rough it up so that the kiln wash doesn’t
run away while you are trying to coat it. I do have a dremel drill & have used it to take of kiln
wash from the back of some pendants, it does a good job. I have found though, if you soak the
glass in water for a few hours, it is much easier to take off. Hope that helps some ladies. With
the stainless steel molds, I wanted to make a couple of curvy types. I do have a very big
mandrel which I used for silversmithing (it is now powder coated as it was going rusty in the
tropics.) I think I could bend a thin piece on this as I still have my tools. I have noticed that
slumpy’s charge a lot for their s/s molds so if we made our own it would be a big saving, Also
do you have glass places that sell scrap small pieces for making the kiln formed glass. I did
try Slumpy’s but they make you do an order of $75. I was prepared to buy a mold to make up
the difference but decided to ask you first Paul about the s/s thickness. As it was 9 lbs of
glass I was kind of worrying about the shipping cost which seems to cost a lot from the USA.
Look forward to your expertise Paul. kind regards ToscaApril 7, 2018 at 9:49 am #11877
