Easily create resin bases for paperweights and suncatchers with this oval reusable silicone mold. The flexible silicone creates resin castings approximately 9 cm by 6 cm by 0.5 cm deep.
To use the mold, mix and pour your resin according to manufacturer 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. 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.
The oval mold is a great size for using up my left over resin. I am making sample of color and glitter with it. Easy to release from the mold.
This is a nice mold. I knew it would be large, so I haven't really had a good use for it yet. It would make a great Easter egg themed item due to it's shape and size. Nice mold, especially for the price.
