We have 3 people
use Best Mix in a casting environment with
Details - All molds
were kiln washed. Lowest temp 1,350. Highest
temp 1,500 degrees
have been experimenting with casting. Here is
what I have done:
used scrap Bullseye broken into smaller pieces
with a hammer. (Only the high tech here) I then
piled the glass into a Best Mix mold and placed
it into the kiln from 1,300 for two hours up to
1,700 for two hours. The mold held up through
all of the temperatures. The only issue is at
1,700 degrees for two hours (I wanted the
"boiling action) the glass leaked through the
kiln wash and picked up a little of the mold
surface. At al other temperatures the mold
survived just fine.
We have made on 24"
square shelf with good results. We are currently
in the hunt for a 2 ft x 6 ft piece of float
glass to cast a large shelf on. We will get back
to you with our results.
