    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.

    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!

    How rounded were the edges of the item you slumped in the mold.  Were they rounded from a full fuse?

     

    Thanks

    The edges were rounded as they normally do in a full fuse.

    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.
