Glass Casting – the good, the bad, and the great Posted on January 28, 2019January 28, 2019 by GramaTortoise These are the lovelies that evolved after the long process of casting from the clay originals in my previous post. Three of these are my best pieces, and for each of them is another version of the same in a box somewhere, with damage from some part of the process. If you look closely at the yellow figure on the upper right, you’ll see the mold split and glass poured thru during the casting. And while I have ground it off, the mold shifted so much that the forehead sits about a half inch out from where it should be. Much of the hair got broken in removing the mold. And there was a never more than one casting from that original, so sadly, that broken piece is all I have for all that work.
