Silicone Moulds: Other Moulds
Durable Silicone Moulds for Resin and Polymer Clay Castings. Food grade so suitable for chocolate and fondant.
Note that our Chess Pieces mould gives half chess pieces per cast as the top surface out of each mould is obviously flat. You can create a full piece by joining two halves together. Apply a layer of resin between two halves and hold them tightly together with elastic bands as the resin cures. Alternatively you can take a finished first half and place it onto the semi cure second half that is still in the mould (you need to get you timing right so that it does not sink into the half that is still curing).

Casting resin into your silicone mould
It is easy to drill a hole through the cured resin, after it has been removed from the mould, for use in jewellery.
Increasing the gloss of you finished resin creation
- Apply a coat of our XTC-3D Brush-On Coating. This gets mixed like a resin and then applied with a brush. It levels out with no brush marks to create a glossy finish.
- You can "paint on" a thin layer of a Shallow Casting Epoxy Resin. Problems with this approach are that the resin may tend to pool in crevices and thin layers of resin take much longer to cure (especially in a cold environment)..
- You can apply a number of stages of sanding and polishing. You can see many examples of the sanding and polishing of resin on YouTube.
