    To participate hands-on in this fun Make-and-Take, an RSVP with a $5 payment is mandatory because the product is limited.   

    Note- You can still come to the meeting and learn about this fascinating new product for free! 

    SilkeMat™ Is a NON-CARCINOGENIC refractory fiber blanket that can be cut, molded, rigidized and formed. It can be used with and without rigidizing.  There is no “shot” in this product and most firings are clean, leaving only the texture of the fiber on the glass. A respirator is NOT needed to cut or work with SilkeMat™.  SilkeMat™ Rigidizer is NON-FLAMMABLE and formulated for molding SilkeMat™ into rigid reusable molds of the highest quality in performance. Easy to use, our Rigidizer cures at 1450F for pot melts and vitrigraph molds, and can even be used to solidify just the outer shell of the SilkeMat mold to retain a soft, release-free interior for slumping any glass. Properly prepared and fired, all SilkeMat™ molds are usually reusable.

    If you are participating in the SilkeMat make-and-take, please bring a small object to make a casting mold from.  This object should be small enough to fit into a six inch square.
