Hello! Today we will be going through the steps to create a resin mold and making replicas of your favorite toys, trinkets, or anything you can imagine. Happy Crafting!
What we need:
1. Art 'N Glow Resin
2. Oomoo silicone rubber
3. Plastic disposable container
4. Figurine, toy, etc.
5. Add ins (EX: pigment, beads, dried/fake flowers, etc.)
6. Plastic cups and wooded popsicle sticks
Step 1:Making the Mold
The most important thing is to plan out what you want to do first. I chose to replicate this bear I modeled with clay. Feel free to use anything else! Once you have a plan, get a disposable container you're willing to cut (sour cream container/cheap tupperware) that will cover your object completely with about 1 inch between the object and the container on all sides. Glue your object to the bottom.
Mix parts A and B of the Oomoo silicone rubber compound in a plastic cup (1A: 1B ratio), and pour into the container, covering your object completely. Try to get it about 1 inch above your object. The silicone should take 6 hours to cure and after the 6 hours, carefully take your object out of the mold. You may have to cut the mold to get it out, but try to cut it in a wave pattern (pictured above).
