This reusable plastic switch plate mold 5677 is made of durable, smooth, reusable polyethylene. It measures 2 3/4" x 4 1/2" x 1/4" deep.
How to Use Resin Molds: Remove any dust and particles from your reusable mold. Molds do not require mold release when casting with resin, however, it is strongly suggested. We recommend the use of Castin' Craft Mold Release and Conditioner. Protect your work area with freezer or wax paper. Treat mold with mold release and allow to dry. Place mold on a level surface and fill the cavities to just below the top. Once the pieces are cured, turn the tray over and press the center area of each piece while flexing to release the casting. Do not use sharp objects to demold your resin as you will scratch your mold. Be sure to also read our plastic resin mold care tips to ensure a long life for your molds.

I made a bunch of these and have them throughout my house. I tinted the resin to go with each room and added shells, sharks teeth and seaglass. The only problem was the holes didn't line up with my outlets so I had to make the holes a little bigger before I could put them up.
Remember to use something opaque on the back - I didn't think and after setting seashells in clear resin the hubby pointed out that you can see the guts of the switch LOL!
Do like this mold!
Love the way it turned out. My daughter loved the way it glows in the dark.. BUT the holes designated for the screws did not line up with the holes on the outlet...so be sure to double check before you drill them out. But all in all...loved it. I ended up using double sided tape to attach to the existing wall plate so she could trade out with the other glow in the dark switch plate.
Worked well and easy to use
