using wave-form (S-shaped) molds
- January 23, 2015 at 1:29 am #10232patgscParticipant
Has anyone had experience using the wave-form (or S-shaped) molds? Are they tricky to get to slump properly? Do they stand up OK on their own? Can you use a regular slumping schedule, or do you need to slow it down? Any advice for someone who has never used one? I’m trying to decide whether they are worth the price. I have some ideas for designs but don’t know whether the molds work well or not.
Thanks for any help.January 27, 2015 at 6:54 am #13482AmyinTucsonParticipant
I am not an expert (by far) but I have used the wave form SS molds and they have worked great – used regular slump schedule. The finished pieces will stand up on their own. I have a zig zag mold that I have yet to try but am planning for it!January 27, 2015 at 2:49 pm #13483patgscParticipant
Thanks a lot. I think I’ll try one. PJanuary 31, 2015 at 12:28 am #13484VernelleParticipant
How rounded were the edges of the item you slumped in the mold. Were they rounded from a full fuse?

The edges were rounded as they normally do in a full fuse.February 12, 2015 at 8:58 pm #13486christinakParticipant
I use a bullseye ceramic mold – it is easy. The pieces stand up perfectly – just make sure the edges are nice and straight when you put it in.
