Kiln Accessories

It takes a lot of trial and error to get fusing down to a science.  Don't burn yourself up over it!
The products listed on this page will help to make your firing times execute smoothly.

ZYP Boron Nitride Mold Release ZYP Boron Nitride Mold Release

The artist helper formerly known as MR-97.
ZYP works wonderfully as a ceramic or stainless steel mold release. It's easy to use, simply spray this aerosol on your slumping or casting mold at room temperature (wear a dust mask and spray outside only for safety). Easy spray-on formula provides a uniform slick coating to produce a flawlessly smooth and easily released project.

13-ounce container will prime about 20 medium sized molds. You may need to touch up the areas where the glass touches the mold after 4 or 5 firings. It works best if you never fire it above 1350F or 730C.

Sold in 13 oz canisters.  Note: This item cannot be shipped via air or USPS.

Slide HI-TEMP 1800 MOLD RELEASE

Slide's Hi-Temp 1800 Boron Nitride Spray is an aerosol mold release primer for slumping and fusing molds. Slide 1800 is particularly good for metal molds as there is no need to pre-heat the mold before applying. Simply spray on 2 thin coats. The mold surface will be visible through the spray. If you cannot see the mold surface, you have applied too much. Slide 1800 dries instantly and is good for multiple firings below 1350° F. Perfect for "Color de Verre" and other casting molds. For firings above 1350° F, you must re-coat after each firing. Slide 1800 forms perfectly to your mold and provides a crisp, clean, smooth surface.

For best results on ceramic slumping molds, apply 4 thorough coats. Glass releases easily, and the uniform coating provides a flawlessly smooth back on your project. For firings up to 1300° F. Holds up well for multiple firings.
Sold in 10 oz canisters.  Note: This item cannot be shipped via air or USPS.

PAPYROS Kiln Shelf Paper is a ceramic-based paper specially formulated for glass fusing. When placed between the kiln shelf and the underside of a glass project, PAPYROS prevents the glass from sticking to the shelf during firing. PAPYROS is available in 20.5"x20.5" sheets or in a space-saving 20.5" wide, 82 foot long Craft Roll that comes packaged in a handy dispensing box.  Cut only what you need! Spectrum Papyros Shelf Paper
Because of its sturdy composition, PAPYROS provides excellent glass/kiln shelf separation on the first use, and may be re-used in subsequent firings, as well. How long post-fired PAPYROS retains its integrity depends on the type of glass used on the project underside (Opal vs. Transparent), the nature of the project (volume/construction), as well as the final fusing temperature (degree of glass movement in the kiln).  Clean up is simple via a studio spatula or using your favorite HEPA shop vacuum.
