homemade silicone mold #1: tutorial
two brands of food safe FDA approved silicone mold I use . I buy this two from Michael’s using 40-50% coupons.
The box comes with two different colored component.
varieties of knick knacks one may use to make a silicone mold impression :)
hunt around your house for a “dish” deep enough to hold the mold you’re planning to make. It doesn’t have to be fancy, even a disposable container cover will do :)
take equal amount of each silicone component, knead together until mixture is of uniform color, place mixture in a “dish”
press the object to be molded face down into the silicone mixture
let “cure” for 25 minutes or per package direction
to remove cured silicone mold from the “dish”, run a thin knife along the edges, it should freely fall off the dish, if this doesn’t happen, gently tug at the edges of the cured silicone mold and pull it off the dish. To remove molded object off the silicone mold, bend the cured mold backwards, the molded object will gently “pop” off the silicone mold,..and voila,..you now have a homemade silicone mold :)
