Make Your Own Silicon Mold




Wouldn't you just love to have your own flexibility to choose the size and design of the mold for your clay projects.

I came across this really easy  way of making a silicone mold. You can quickly make casts of anything you want which is solid.

As the Silicon sets fast, you can get your mold ready in no time. 



Materials Used:-

  • Silicon Sealant
  • Baby oil
  • Object which you want to make the cast off
  • Cornflour
I got this silicon sealant from Amazon. You can check it out here.




You can also search for the product in the search bar of the Amazon link on this page on the right hand side.

This is the model I used to make the cast off.
Carefully remove the required amount of silicon.
 

The Silicon would be very sticky.So use cornflour to knead it. 
Take some cornflour and mix it with the silicon.


  
  Knead it untill it forms a smooth lump.




You can also add colour to it.I have added pink acrylic paint. 


Add little bit of baby oil to knead, so that it doesn't stick to you fingers.



Shape the silicon and slowly  press down the model.





Press firmly and see to it that all the details of the model are captured, but also take care that you don't push too deep and make the base weak.

Allow it to set  for around 15 to 20 minutes.
Once dried, remove the model.
Your mold is ready to be used.

  1. What materials can you use in the silicone mold - or how do you prep the mold - so that the materials don't stick to it?
