Firing Schedule:

Please Read: This firing recommendation has been calculated using Bullseye Glass with a thickness of 6 mm in a Paragon GL24 kiln, and is courtesy of Bullseye Glass Co. 

Segment Rate (C/hr) Temp. Hold
1 167C 649C :30
2 999 482C 1:00
3 56C 371C :00
4 999 21C :00

Troubleshooting

  • Small kilns may require the process temperature reducing. In the Hobbyfuser and HotStart Pro, reduce the top temperature from 649C to 626C. In the Firebox 14, reduce the top temperature from 649C to 606C. All kilns vary, as does glass viscosity. Testing is necessary.
  • Remove the shelf when slumping in small kilns.
  • Side firing kilns may require more time in the first ramp than top firing kilns.
  • Bubbles in slumping are caused by firing too high or holding too long at process temperature.
  • Cracked moulds or cracked glass is caused by firing too fast in the first ramp or cooling too fast.
  • Devitrification on the outside of a slumped piece is caused by firing too high or holding too long at process temperature.

All our moulds are designed for multiple use and with care should last for many firings.

This is a lovely little mould. It's simple to use and gives good results. I've just bought my second one of these so that I can slump 2 at the same time but the new one is about 1cm smaller all round. Warm Glass have explained why but it could still cause problems for me which is unfortunate. Just be aware of that!
