These clear silicone molds allow you to see what you are doing while you are resin casting. Great for knowing exactly where to place your embedments or for removing bubbles. Being able to see through the mold means fewer mistakes!
Choose from the following diameters:
- 35 mm
- 50 mm
- 65 mm
The 35 mm cube holds approximately 45 ml (1 1/2 ounces) of resin. The 50 mm cube holds approximately 125 ml (a little over 4 ounces) of resin. The 65 mm cube holds approximately 275 ml (a little over 9 ounces) of resin.
To use the mold, mix and pour the resin according to manufacturer's instructions. Once the resin has cured, slowly peel the mold from the cast. Work around all the edges before pulling up the middle sections. 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 releaseto make sure your castings come out perfectly. Demolding can be made easier by adding soapy water between the casting and the mold.
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 have made a few night light cubes with this mold. Happy I found this, most ones you find are shipped in from overseas and take forever to arrive and I needed to make these quickly.
This cube is easy to use, releases well, and it's great that it comes in many different sizes. Will definitely be using this for several projects in the future!
I like this cube mold. It is sturdy and the casting came out easily.
