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! These molds allow you to create beautiful round, resin beads that can be used for earrings, pendants, bracelets and hairpieces. The area for an approximately 2 mm wide hole will be cast into the charm, making stringing them easy peasy! The flexible silicone rubber allows you to use the mold dozens of time. Make up to 6 round beads at once!
Choose from a 12 mm or 16 mm width.
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.
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've used these a bunch of times and they work great. Easy to demold and give a really shiny finish.
What fun to be able to make your own beads! I have the square mold too, but this one is perfect with the round beads being more comfortable to wear. Endless possibilities for creativity! Great quality!
These bead molds have consistently turned out one perfect bead after another. I do not even use mold release with these and the beads pop right out every single time. There is not a lot of control possible with inclusions but works well with dyes or pouring in steps. Have bought six of these.
Wonderful product - would buy more.
I love having this mold with six cavities for beads. it's very useful and efficient.
