As I mentioned, this month my blogs will focus on Creative Paradise Inc (CPI) fused glass Molds. So far I’ve written mostly about CPI fused glass molds casting and textures. I written my blogs on CPI fused glass jewelry molds, button molds, textured molds, and casting molds all by CPI. For my last blog I discussed CPI fussed glass draping molds so of course this time I want to discuss slumping molds. Slumping is when the glass goes on top of a mold but slumps into the mold to take the mold’s shape.
CPI has several slumping molds. It really depends on what you want a smooth bottom or a textured bottom. Plus it doesn’t have to just be round.
Even though slumping looks easy but sometimes it under fires, here is an example of underfiring. The glass hasn’t reached the bottom of the mold. When this happens I fire again until it does hit the bottom.
Sometimes it’s too much I draped this one so much it cracked.
