Make a small bowl or vase that can be used as a candle holder or small planter. The silicone is very flexible allowing you to reuse the mold dozens of times.
Resin castings from this mold will measure 6 cm wide by 3.5 cm deep (outer dimensions). The center opening is 4 cm wide by 2.5 cm deep. Castings will have a matte finish.
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 and pressing from the bottom. 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.
