A new glass casting mold arrived today. It's from Colour de Verre - my favorite source of molds. The new mold is shaped like a kiwi leaf. It will make great dessert or salad plates. It could also be a soap dish or candle holder. My first leaf is in the kiln now. I used shades of green and clear frit. I won't get to see my first leaf til morning. This is the hard part of casting - the waiting. Once the leaf is done, I'll slump it into another mold to give it nice sloping sides. I'll post a photo of the finished product soon.
