This mold measures 36 mm in diameter. The starfish itself measures about 22 mm. No tracing or cutting out of starfish required as the mold will give your piece a textured sand-like background unless you want to cut it out like the examples shown in the photo. If you would like a different shape background...or larger mold...or in silicone rubber, please contact me. The examples beside the mold are made from polymer clay, but ceramic or other types of clay can also be used.
You can create your own tiles with an imitative bone finish
Stamping with this mold is easy. Just brush on a little bit of water and you're good to go as it is a natural mold release compound and doesn't react with the mold. I give these molds a background so you don't have to trim around the seahorse which make molding much easier. Premo clay work best with this type of mold, but if you do use Fimo, then use cornstarch for release by dusting the Fimo with it, rather than the mold. Don't use water with Fimo as it will make the clay sticky. You can also use Armorall Original Automotive Vinyl Protectant Spray as a release agent.
Please allow 1 to 2 days for the creation of your piece.
Samples of beads are not included
