As I mentioned, this month my blogs will focus on Creative Paradise Inc (CPI) Molds. I wrote my first two blogs were on CPI fused glass jewelry molds and my 3rd blog was was on CPI fused glass button molds. For this blog I’m going to focus on textured molds by CPI. First let me freely admit I love CPI textured molds. I’ve done several including the tree of life, greenman, lady in the woods, dolphins, sailboats, dragonflies, peacock, – so many amazing textures!
So this blog is going to show off a couple more beautiful textured pieces. I love textures because they can be done so many ways. Like the tulips and the snowflake you can use it with clear or with opaque and get a completely different look. After fusing them they can be used as art sculptures like above fused glass pieces or make them into art bowls by slumping into a bowl mold.
Additionally textures can be done so many different ways you can add frit like the 2 new ones above or you can just use iridized and no frit like the lady in the woods, tree of life, and dolphins. I also used various glass backgrounds for the butterfly, fish, and peacock – the only difference is I used pebeo paint on the butterfly and fish and just used a special background for the peacock. I also did something similar with my koi i.e., I used special glass and I added frit. As you can see textured fused glass pieces can be changed so many ways including color!
As you can see there are so many beautiful ways to make amazing beautiful textured fused glass!
