Flatten the silicone putty into a pancake-like shape. Gently press your object onto the putty, ensuring that it captures all the details. Carefully wrap the putty around the object, forming a mold.
Step 4: Smooth and Shape
Smooth out any seams or imperfections in the silicone putty mold. Shape the mold to your liking, ensuring that it is stable and won't deform during the casting process.
Step 5: Let It Set
Allow the silicone putty to set according to the manufacturer's instructions. This usually takes a short amount of time, making it a quick and efficient option for mold-making.
Step 6: Remove Object
Once the silicone putty has fully set, carefully remove the original object from the mold. You'll now have a flexible and detailed silicone mold ready for casting.
Step 7: Get Creative with Casting
