Let the games begin! I’m testing molding. After lots of research, I’m actually testing! Woohoo!
- Modeling clay (doesn’t dry out)
- Something to use as a base (glossy scrap cardboard)
- Pure silicone caulk
- Corn starch
- Stir sticks (old plastic spatulas)
- Mixing container
I used the modeling clay to make something to mold against. I cut a piece, stuck it down to the glossy card stock, mixed equal parts corn starch and silicone caulk, then added xylene to get a spreadable consistency.
I then plastered the silicone mix onto the clay. Not pretty, but pretty really isnt’ necessary.
The third picture is the result after two hours. The silicone was largely set. I didn’t do a good enough job getting the silicone into the register holes. I’ll know to watch for that when starting the actual mold making.
