Not sure where to post this but I'm sure that it will be put in the correct place if I'm wrong. Very Happy

I use (and sell) silcone moulding paste



Have whatever you want to make a mould of ready to hand as once mixed the silicone sets very quickly. Take equal parts of the blue and white.


Mix together quickly with your fingers - it is very soft and easy to mix but work quickly




when it has reached a uniform pale blue, cover your object and leave to set.




When set remove the object and you are left with an exact copy of your object which you can use straight away with either scenic water for jellies or fimo (see further tutorials)

Great Tut Linda very well done and you make it look so easy. Does the unmixed silicone have a shelf life, and approximatly how many moulds would you get out of your pack please.

I don't know about shelf life as I use it quite quickly when I open it but I should think it would last quite a long time as long as kept in the containers.
How many moulds would depend upon their size. I did find that I used a lot of it at first by making too much in one go and having a lot of the silicone paste around the object. You get more sparing and able to judge how much you need with practice. Each pot contains 40g so I should imagine that you can get around 8 to 10 jelly moulds out of it. You'd only get around 4 of my large moulds e.g. butterfly mould with 6 butterflies on it.

i thought this was brilliant and have been having a lot of fun searching for suitable moulds and then making the moulds

i got mine from ebay and it cost £14.95 for 100g, which i though was a bit steep so i checked hobbycraft and it was around the same price. having searched over the internet i can't find it cheaper. then on ebay today i found this one (see link below) and its cheaper and you get twice as much. it seems its just a no frills packaging. i have ordered some and will let you know if it is the same http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130397905695&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

Hi Sal

Looks like the right thing! That is very interesting to here about it when you receive it!! Can't wait!!

Here in Denmark i have to pay around 33 £ to get something like that, but there will then be 300 g in it.

i got the alternative silicon moulding paste today and used it on several things, its exactly the same. it was purple rather than blue but works in exactly the same way. so i would recommend it and will definately buy again. i find myself constantly examining things now wondering if i can make a mould from it. i even pulled apart then put back together a charm bracelet so i could mould the charms lol
