The molds turn out beautiful chess pieces. Make sure all bubbles are out by pouring small amounts in the piece and then squeezing to bring bubbles to the top. Most of the pieces are easy to remove once the resin is set, except the king- he’s very difficult to get out. You need a lot of patience for that one. The reason I only gave 4 stars is that the set only comes with 2 pawns. That causes some problems with making sure the color is mixed exactly the same each 4 times you mix a new batch. I have turned out a few that are a shade darker or lighter. I had to order extra pawns so that I can have consistency. Also this set does not include the chess board.

Hi Nancy, your chess set is beautiful! Not only do we love the look, but sincerely appreciate that you shared your tips with others on how to get bubble-free results. You also weren't the only one to share insight that you wanted more pawn molds. As such, we recently included a store listing to buy the molds individually. You can buy more single molds here: https://shop.resinobsession.com/collections/new/products/silicone-resin-chess-pieces-single-molds-make-chess-game-pieces
