Can You Drape and Slump at The Same Time, YES, Glass Fusing Tutorial

Of course, you can drape and slump at the same time. It all comes down to your mould. This video shows me slumping and draping a fused glass piece in and over a custom mould I made.

The mould I made and have had for many years. The piece I made in a previous video.

The video tutorial includes the design, materials, and equipment information, as well as the cutting of glass, firing, and slumping.

The Firing Schedule is in this article.

Project Information

Draping and Slumping Fused Glass

In the YouTube video, you will find links to related videos, a chapter list with time stamps, and links to more resources.

Don’t forget, the glass I normally use is Bullseye 90 COE, but in this video, it’s 96 COE. I use Thinfire fiber paper on the shelf, but when fire polishing on my shelf, and slumping in moulds, I spray with boron nitride mould release.

All relevant details are in the video.

If you have any questions please ask in the comments section for the YouTube video.

Remember, these schedules are for COE 90.
