Make a resin clock face with Arabic numerals 1 through 12. Casts with a hole in place of the center of the face to allow for mechanical hands.
The clear silicone allows you to see what you are doing while you are resin casting. Being able to see through the mold means fewer mistakes as you can exactly see where to place any additions or extra embedments.
Resin castings from this mold will measure 3 7/8 inches in diameter and 1/8 inch deep. Center hole casts 1/4 inch in diameter. Numbers cast approximately 1/16 inches tall and 3/8 to 1/2 inch in diameter.
To use the mold, mix and pour the resin according to manufacturer's instructions. Once the resin has cured, flex the silicone around the casting to release the resin. It may be helpful to pour soapy water in between the resin and the mold to release the casting and pressing from the bottom. Because the molds are small you may want to warm them slightly with a heat gun before use. For optimum life of your mold, we highly recommend using the Ultra 4 Parafilm paintable mold release to make sure your castings come out perfectly.
After a cast is made, be sure to thoroughly clean the mold (removing any casting residue or release agent) before storing. Clean your molds with dish soap and water. To remove fingerprints use rubbing alcohol. Store silicone molds flat in a clean, dry location away from direct sunlight. Be sure to read our 5 tips for keeping your silicone molds in top shape.
I very much like this mold - except for the number 4. It has a weird tag near the top that looks out of place. Would have been better as a straight line. Overall though, good mold.
