Wave sizes
« on: February 22, 2014, 01:51:10 PM »
So I have a nice new wave mold, which is screaming out at me to be put to good use! My problem is what size should my glass piece be? The mold is 13.5 cm long (measured across the flat bottom length), but does my piece need to be slightly longer to allow for it to slump to the shape?

Incase I am making no sense, this is the mold in question!

I never make my glass any longer, it bothers me that it might go over he edge

I've gone for just a tad smaller and will see what the results are, might need a few tests to get the size just right! Just my brain was looking at it like that's never going to be big enough and making me question myself  ::)
