Q: I love your bottle molds! I have a wooden plaque with a metal medallion on it. I want to make a mold of the medallion and then slump bottle bottoms.

Can you believe how fast time flies? Already Monday again. Today I’m answering questions about trying to cut bottles when Amazon doesn’t ship to your country, where to buy brass chain, fusing glass gems and some mica questions. These are all actual reader questions, I’ve removed any personal details for privacy. If you have a question, send it on over!
