Still have questions about how it works? This two minute video shows the mold putty in action:
As other reviewers have indicated, this product does cure very quickly and tends to leave a rough surface (depending on the surface texture of the original object; I've had more success with very smooth objects but it still doesn't come out as shiny/clear as I'd like), but it's excellent for making quick, flat molds without a lot of undercuts or intricate detail. I've also used it for temporary support or to seal gaps in an object I'm trying to fill with resin (like a seashell with holes or uneven edges), because unlike clay it doesn't stick to the resin after it's cured. It does seem to get very stuck to silicone, though, so avoid putting it directly on a mold or silicone mat unless you want to spend time scraping it off later. Overall, pretty versatile and good for small projects!
I purchased and used this to make a Christmas present last year. This was my first experience making my own mold for resin! My project turned out OK for my first attempt but with practice, could’ve turned out better. This is a fast curing product- you will need to work quickly once it is mixed to mold this around your object! Plan out the best side to use as the flat side of the mold BEFORE YOU MIX! It needs to be a pretty thick amount to make a durable multi-use mold.
This was the first product I tried with mold making. It is easy to mix and use, and cures fast, but the putty doesn't hold tight to the object as it cures, so your mold isn't an exact fit. The putty also leaves a rough texture that will need sanding and polishing, if you prefer a smooth resin finish.
