Easily make lookalike faceted gemstone charms in record time with these clear silicone resin jewelry molds. Great for making your own resin lookalike natural gemstones in any color you choose!
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.
Choose from the following sizes:
Large Single drop mold: Castings will be approximately 1 3/4 inches long by 7/8 inches wide (widest point) by 3/8 inches deep.
Double charm mold: This mold will make two castings approximately 7/8 inches long by 1/2 inch wide by 1/2 inch deep.
The flexible silicone rubber allows you to use the mold dozens of time.
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. 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 bought this mold a while back and I liked it so much I bought another so I can make 2 at one time - I’m not good at mixing the exact same colors.
