Our silicone molds have a natural release and do not stick. Simply pour in your mixture of 2 parts resin with 1 part hardener, and mix well for 3 minutes. Pour into the mold and allow to dry overnight. Pop out your design and apply with super glue to your frame, furniture, or decorative object. The detail on our molds will be quite exquisite due to the depth in each. You can use these molds over and over again. Using the Resin recipe with only half the hardener will allow your designs to be flexible and be placed beautifully over curved surfaces.
If you prefer using air dry clay in lieu of resin, you will notice some shrinkage and cracking. Be aware that air dry clay will not give you the detail that you can get with Resin.
Amy loves using Decorative Molds for baking: adding detail to cookies, cakes, etc. We suggest keeping your food molds separate from ones that you prefer to use for painting and creating.
