Colour de Verre has a wide variety of designs inspired by the sea.

This mould makes three realistic sea shells - a conch, spiral whelk and scallop - each about 6.35 cm long. The finished shells look great by themselves, but even better when used in combination with Colour de Verre's other sea life-inspired moulds, such as the Seahorse and Starfish, Small Beach Shells, Tropical Fish and Starfish. 

The mould measures approximately 19.05 cm x 12.06 cm x 3.17 cm. 

The fill weight for the conch is 18 grams; the spiral whelk, 10 grams; and scallop, 32 grams - this is the amount of glass required to fill the moulds properly.

For best effect, Colour de Verre recommends the use of frit, at least 50% of which should be clear (otherwise the castings will be very dark).  To see our range of fine frits, click here.

IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT FOR BEST EFFECT, COLOUR DE VERRE SPECIFICALLY RECOMMENDS THE USE  OF PARTICULAR PRODUCTS - SUCH AS HOTLINE PRIMO PRIMER (OR MR-97, WHICH IS NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE IN AUSTRALIA). 

Give the mould 3-4 thin, even coats of Primo Primer kiln wash, using a soft artist's brush to apply the Primer (Colour de Verre recommends that you do NOT use a haik brush, as this will not pick up the necessary fine detail).  Use a hair dryer to completely dry each coat before applying the next.

Colour de Verre suggests a cooler than usual firing temperature of about 1290-1310ºF (700-710ºC) for COE 96 and 25ºF (10ºC) hotter for COE 90.  The lower temperatures of this firing schedule will preserve the design's delicate edge detail and keep the glass from balling.
