Original Mermaid Tail mold from my hand-sculpted design.
Measurement: 25mm (1 inch) tall, 28mm (1 -1/8th inches) wide
Make pendants, beads, use as cabochons for bead embroidery...let your guide you. When casting polymer clay, condition the clay well. Once your clay has been pushed completely into the mold, the casting may deform during the removal from the mold. Putting the mold with the clay into a freezer for a short period (3 to 5 minutes) may make distortion less likely.
However, you can also cure your item in the mold as the mold is oven safe up to 400F or 204C. This method creates the most original casting.
These molds can be used with all brands of polymer clay, but also work well for precious metal clay, porcelain, resin, paper clay, ceramic clay and even in soap making. If you intend on using it for edible products such as chocolate or ice cubes, please do so solely for that purpose and don't cast resin etc and then use it for food products. Of course it's fine that once you receive the mold to use it for making chocolates and once you no longer intend on doing so, then using it to cast with clay, resin etc.
Inspiration / Story behind this Product:
I live by the seashore and can't help collect little bits and pieces of nature. I've created many beads, pendants and pieces of jewelry with these wonders of nature, but polymer clay is such a great material to recreate these materials, especially if you don't live anywhere near a beach.
Thanks for stopping by. I'm away until Aug 18th...
