Fusing with Bottle Bottom Molds

Fusing with bottle bottom molds is easy and surprisingly versatile. To start, you need a bottle bottom mold. We have a lovely variety in our online store, with new designs being issued regularly. Here is one of my favorites:

Kilnwash your mold, or coat it with whatever your favorite mold release is.

Then add a 750mL bottle bottom (also available in our online store if you don’t feel like wrangling with a saw). For best results, you should try and cut the bottle as close to the bottom as possible.
