Every month I’ve been writing blogs about my myriad of fused glass molds. Recently I watch a video on how to use a mold that connects a fused glass drop vase to a base. I like fused glass drop vases and have tried several. Some I’ve cut the rim off and I love the fused glass vases without the rim but out of the 7 I’ve created I broke all but two. I like the rim on as well but it can appear as a little unbalanced.
So this mold is actually 3 parts. I created a foot then I made the blank for the top. After both are completed I put the blank on top and the foot in the bottom and fused them together.
The key is to watch the drop until it connects with the foot, for example it took me 3 times to get it to drop far enough to touch the base. Kind of a pain but, I have to say it’s beautiful and I can’t wait to make another one. I hope you like it as much as I do. I love fused glass, there is so much that can be created with fused glass.
