molds for small kiln

Postby bkfoltz » Wed Oct 29, 2003 3:35 pm

I have a small skutt kiln and I am looking for molds to make flowers.

I remember seeing molds that would work in a hotbox kiln. those are about the size I need or similar. My kiln is front loading and 9x9x9 inside.

I saw a pattern book that had slumped flowers. The author of the books said she found some items at a ceramic store to use as molds. I have searched 2 different ceramic places with no luck. Showed the book to the guy at the ceramic store and he does not have any molds that would work.

yes, I know I could make the molds but.............

Help please.
Kris

Get the catalogs from Sunshine Glassworks in NY, Ed Hoys in IL, or other stained glass distributors. They will have quite a few smaller molds to choose from.

I just looked in my Sunshine catalog. Maybe you want Sun Sculptures molds? Possibly there is a pic on their website.

Whittemore-Durgin Stained Glass has quite a few leaf, flower, etc., stainless steel molds that are very inexpensive. It's an old Co. in the north, nice people & very cool to deal with. http://www.penrose.com.

Check out the WD website, and get the catalog. It is one of the most eccentric catalogs I've seen. They're the Archie McPhee of stained glass suppliers. I keep one of their catalogs at home, and on slow evenings read excerpts from it to my long suffering family.
