D20 Icosahedron MOLD for Stained Glass Making - Stained Glass Jig - Twenty Sided Shape Mold - Stained Glass Tools
Our jig makes soldering a D20 much easier by creating perfect angles. Accommodates different size equilateral triangles to create different sized D20s(for the 4” you may need an extra set of hand since it gets too heavy). I’m using a 2” triangle for the completed piece shown. Pattern for 2”, 3” and 4” triangles included(Link to download will be in the box). * You can use this jig to make 5 petal flowers/succulents but we recommend our layered succulent jigs to create a better finish here.

Add on precut glass for an additional fee. Perfectly cut waterjet equilateral triangles 2” sides. Leave a note at checkout with glass choice and we’ll send options that are in stock.
Made with PLA filament. **PLEASE NOTE** This mold is made with plastic which WILL MELT with direct contact from your soldering iron. Only use to tack this pieces together, don’t solder seams on the mold.(You’ll get better lines soldering off the jig anyway where you can hold the seam level.) I have made DOZENS of these with my mold with MINIMAL burns, none of which effect the usage. Used properly this jig will last for years. Can be slightly sanded if you do make it uneven(have never had to do this personally). Please be aware of this before purchase. I will not accept refunds or exchanges on this item.

For best results: Cut and grind triangles as perfectly as possible, make sure you solder on a lower temp, use flux sparingly and take patience to prevent burning your mold. You can add an additional layer of foil once its tacked together for large seams. Build your outer seams slowly by putting a base layer down, allow to cool, then create your top layer. Or use 50/50 solder for your inside seams, 60/40 for your outer seams.
