I posted this in the art glass section too,but wanted to post it here,just in case.
I do art jewellery and have used vintage cast glass faces when I can find them. I want to make my own,making my own molds. I did some glass casting in college but it was a long time ago and have lost my notes since then. Tried to recreate those trials ,but w/ limited success.
This is one of my pieces w/ a vintage glass face.

Beautiful art nouveau piece, I can see why you want to make your own pate de verre. I don't think I recall anyone using that technique on here, and I'm afraid it isn't something I know anything about. I'm sure there will be various websites devoted to it, and hopefully stockists of materials.

Maybe try looking at www.warmglass.com - it's a forum specifically devoted to glass. Someone there might have the answers you're looking for.
