The Single Centered Hole Pot Melt from Big Glass Molds is the simplest of the all the pot melt vessels. A single hole in the center allows the glass to melt through and puddle out from the center. This creates some very interesting mixes of color as they push each other to the outer edges of your mold.
Pot Melts are a great way to create unique and interesting art from all your scrap glass. Each type of pot will create a unique pattern in the finished piece. Alternate how you arrange the glass in the pot to help control the design.
You can leave the finish melt as is or cut it up into strips or shapes to use as elements in another work of art. Experiment, and don't be afraid to have fun!
5" Wide x 2" Deep
Make sure the kiln shelf you use is pre-washed, completely dry and level in your kiln.
You can use simple rings or squares for your pot melt, or you can melt directly into a mold to create interesting shapes.If you cast directly into a mold, use several layers of kiln wash prior to using the mold.
It is important to note that although the mold can be used multiple times, there will always be glass left from the last melt that cannot be removed from the pot. Stacking some clear on top will help reduce the amount of color left in the pot.
DO NOT USE KILN WASH OR PAPER IN THE POT IT WILL RUIN YOUR POT MELT.
Not intended for use in table top kilns.
1/8" Glass weighs 1.67 pounds per square foot. So if your want your finished melt to be 12 x 12 and 1/4" thick, you would need 3.34 lbs of glass for your melt. Since some of the glass will stay in the pot it is a good idea to add about 1/4 lb extra to the pot.
