Butterfly Fritter Garden Stake
or Night Lite

FusedButterflyFrit04

Materials:

Fritter or Dam Mold
Glass Separator - Primo Primer is best! - Other glass separators may leave a residue on glass.
Clear Coarse Frit
Colored Medium Frit
Black Fine Frit - optional

Prior to placing glass in molds: Brush on 4 thin coats, letting dry in between coats, premixed glass separator.
Set on kiln shelf and fire at medium speed (250 per hour) until kiln reaches 300 degrees.

Once firing complete, turn off kiln. Molds may be removed at 150 degrees.

Sprinkle small amounts of colored medium or fine frits into mold layering as you go.
Use a brush to move colored frits if they spill onto unwanted areas.
Sprinkle clear coarse frit to lightly but evenly cover all of colored frit. Put extra clear coarse frit into middle of mold in a small dome shape.
Quantity of Frit: You will want the frit to reach about   way up in frit mold.
With a small brush, brush frit AWAY from the edges all the way around the mold creating a small ‘trench’ between the mold and the frit.

Set mold on kiln shelf. Kiln shelves should be 8” from bottom of a ceramic kiln.
These can be fired to cone 015 on medium speed in a traditional kiln because of their relatively small size.
Do not take cones out or prop lid during annealing between 1100 and 700 degrees.
Do not unload until 150 degrees or less. Room temperature is best.
Invert mold to release.
Wash mold with soap and water to remove glass separator.

Attach Copper Tube to make into a Garden Stake or glue a night lite onto back.

*These do not need to be flashed.
