Durable Metal Mold LF 6 is sold as a set of two molds, measuring approx. 5″ x 2 7/8″.  You can use two molds, with glass in between, to give you an unique texture on both sides of the leaf. Because of the design and thickness of the molds, it may not nest completely like the other molds but will give you the double sided effect.

Description

NatureScape MOLDS can help you create stand alone leaves or placed in the center of your glass for an impressive design feature. They are very durable metal molds and will hold up to multiple firings. They can withstand rapid kiln temperature changes without mold damage. If glass happens to stick to the mold, it can be refreshed by sandblasting the glass remains off. Uncoated sides of the mold will darken after firing, this is normal. After firing, you may notice mold texture on your glass leaves, which adds character. You can also double stack your glass and molds to make more leaves at a time. You may need to adjust your firing schedule slightly. It may be necessary to lower the temperature or shorten your hold time to prevent thinning in spots. Thinning is more likely to happen on the heavier molds (LF6, 8, & 9)

Coat the NatureScape Mold with an aerosol Boron Nitride, such as ZYP or Mo-Re. DO NOT USE Slide Spray or Lower Friction brand Boron Nitride Spray because for this application, they don’t work well. Water based mold release products, such as Primo Primer can be used on the molds if you preheat the mold to about 225 degrees. Apply the primer while the molds are hot to get a good bond.

You can also use the backside of the molds for frit mold casting and create different colors of leaves with frit.

Firing Schedule
800 /hour 950 hold 10 minutes
AFAP 1340 30 minutes

Make adjustments to the recommended firing schedule to match your kiln setup and preferences. If you have issues with the mold release sticking to your glass, try firing to a lower temperature.
