There are so many different kinds of molds you can create for crafts and hobbies. Decorate your home by creating molds for candles, vases, doorknobs, statuettes, and garden décor.
Of course, your craft mold making could serve a more practical purpose, too. Use silicone to create molds for fishing lure, soap, food trays, and props for theater, film, photography, or events. Silicone is the perfect craft molding material thanks to its remarkable ease of use and durability.
AeroMarine silicone is great for craft mold making because you can reuse it multiple times. You can prevent your cured silicone mold from shrinkage and damage by storing it properly.
To properly store your cured silicone, insert a previously cast object into the mold to maintain its shape. If you’re storing a small silicone mold wrap it in a Ziplock bag and press out the air; if you’re storing a large silicone mold, wrap it in a garbage bag and press the excess air out. Then place the bag on a flat surface in a location that’s out of direct sunlight and that’s at a continuous 70-degrees Fahrenheit temperature.
If the silicone mold has cured resin left on it, you should be able to gently pop it off the mold. If the silicone mold has sticky uncured resin residue on it wash it with warm water a mild amount of liquid dish soap. Pat-dry it thoroughly and then let the mold air dry by itself. Apply a coat of petroleum based mold release to the dry mold to help condition the silicone and prevent it from becoming brittle.
Remember not to use any kind of abrasive soap, cleaner, or pad to clean your cured silicone mold, because those materials could damage it.
