Use Organic Objects From Nature to Make Your Mold

There are plenty of objects to make molds of in the natural world. In this video you will see Stan make a mold and cast of a flower bud. We have also used tree bark, acorns, pinecones, leaves, rocks, and more.






An important lesson you will learn in this video is that anchoring your natural found object to the bottom of your mold box is very important. If the object is very light it will float to the top of your melted ComposiMold. You can easily fish it out and start over, but taking the time in the beginning will save you time and frustration in the end!

Despicable Me Minion Duplicating With ComposiMold.
 
Today we used concrete to create a Minion garden statue. Several months back, we created a yellow chocolate Minion cake topper for an Ises cake show. I recently found the left over minion mold laying around and decided to use it to create a concrete minion.

Turn Your Logo into a Chocolate Cake Topper

We turned the Startup and Create logo into a white chocolate cupcake topper! You can do this too by printing out a logo as line art, placing the paper over a piece of polymer clay, and tracing and cutting the logo out of the clay.

We then put the clay logo shape into a heat safe mold box and poured ComposiMold-FC over  the top.

Once the ComposiMold-FC cools, you can remove the clay and pour melted chocolate into it. The chocolate hardens fairly quickly and even quicker in the freezer. Simply bend the mold away from the chocolate logo, once the chocolate has hardened, and use the chocolate casting to decorate cakes or cupcakes.

Don't forget, once you are done making your cake toppers in this mold, re-melt the mold to make over 35 different logos with one container of ComposiMold-FC.

How to Use a Wallpaper Scrap to Make a Fondant Cake Wrap Texture

Easily transfer interesting textures onto the side of your cake with a ComposiMold mold. In this example, we used a scrap piece of textured wall paper to make our mold. 

 
1. Glue the entire back side of the paper to a perfectly flat heat safe mold box. (You can make any shape and depth mold box with tin foil.) Be sure the surface you are resting the mold on is level and perfectly flat.

2. Coat the textured paper and inside of the mold box with Food Contact Safe Mold Release. Wipe away any excess. 

3. Melt ComposiMold-FC (food contact) per instructions on the lid. Do not let it boil, as this will introduce too many bubbles.

4. Pour the ComposiMold-FC into your mold box to cover the paper by at least 1/2".


5. Let the mold cool and solidify on the flat surface.

6. Pull the mold away from the tin foil and then remove the wallpaper from the mold. 


 
7. Trim any rough edges of the mold with a clean knife or kitchen scissors. 

8. Soften your fondant and press it into the mold. Using a rolling pin eliminates the added heat of your fingers which may warp your fondant casting. 

 
9. Trim the edges of your fondant cake wrap and apply to the cake. 

10. You can also pick up details in the mold to decorate the top and sides of the cake.

 The possibilities are endless. You can find textures to mold everywhere you look. If you are not able to put the texture you want to duplicate into a mold box due to it's location, you can use a different method called: the Brush On Method. This allows you to brush melted ComposiMold onto a texture in place. One example is an instance where we wanted to duplicate a flower detail on the back of a lawn chair. After washing the plastic chair with soap and hot water we followed the steps to create a mold with this technique. Then we were able to make white chocolate castings in this mold. See how the possibilities are endless?!

Custom Table Decorations for Weddings Using ComposiMold

Instead of buying generic decorations for the next wedding you help plan, use ComposiMold and make one-of-a-kind decorations that the special couple will love!

In this example, we used clay to make the initial circle bead. Then we pressed small letters, that we bought from the craft store, into the center of each of them. We also pressed a peace sign bead into one of the clay circles. Peace and love was the theme of this wedding. 

Remember, the package of letters we bought can be reused to mark different initials over and over again.


Proceed by applying Mold Release and Bubble Buster to the initialed clay pieces and then pour the melted ComposiMold over them to cover by at least 1/2".

Let the ComposiMold solidify back to its rubbery consistency and then remove the clay.

NOTE: ComposiMold-FC, Original, Flex, and Firm are all food contact safe, so if it's never been used with non-food items, you could cast these shapes in chocolate or fondant now. 

I will be using urethane resin to make the table decorations.

Mix your resin per instructions on the label and then fill the mold cavities with an appropriate Mold Release. I can then pour my urethane resin into my mold, let cure, remove, and paint.


Everyone loves handmade items. Wow all the guests at the wedding with this cool project. Choose the shape of clay you want, the image on the third clay "bead", and the color scheme to paint them. They can be used to wrap the linens around the silverware, as place holders, or fun giveaway on a string.

Olympia Turns a Squinkie into a White Chocolate Ring Pop

What would we do without our most creative mold makers around? Our kids make the coolest things!

Olympia, the founder of ComposiMold's daughter, wanted to make a toy she could actually eat, just like babies chew on their toys. Who wouldn't want that, right?!

She explains the ComposiMold process as well as any of her adult counterparts and turns her little Squinkie toy into white chocolate. By pressing an empty Ring Pop ring into the bottom of the still melted chocolate, she was able to turn her creation into a functional AND EDIBLE work of art!

Bubble Buster Product Demo

 
Today we will be demonstrating how you can use  Bubble Buster to improve the quality of your molds.
 
Reduce Bubble Formation by Reducing Surface Tension
Bubble Buster is a PVA mixture that reduces bubble formation when making your mold. It works by reducing the surface tension so the bubbles rise up and away from the mold surface.
 


Bubble Buster product demo video for reducing bubble when mold making

To use: Liberally spray your original part with Bubble Buster after applying a mold release. Pour ComposiMold over your original part to make your mold. Bubble Buster is not intended for use in your mold for the casting process or for edible casting materials.

"Oogoo", ComposiMold-Flex, and The 3D Printer....a trifecta of endless creative possibilities! Watch our video today to see how we 3D printed a frog figurine, molded it with ComposiMold-Flex, and duplicated it in an "oogoo" silicone rubber material.

We love using ComposiMold to duplicate parts printed with a 3D Printer. Using the CAD program is not our favorite part, so we visit www.thingiverse.com to order parts designed by other creative people. Then we can get to the mold making part!



Supplies Needed for this Project:
ComposiMold-Flex, 20oz.
A 3D Printed Master Object
100% Silicone Caulking
Mineral Spirits
Odorless Mineral Spirits

In today's video we feature a mold made of a Crazy Bone. A Toy based on an ancient Greece and Rome game called Knucklebones where children used sheep's knucklebones. Crazy Bones is a game, played with characters instead of sheep’s knucklebones. The game is played by lining up your crazy bones and your opponent lining up his/hers.  The first player chooses a Crazy Bone to flick at their opponents line up to knock down as many as possible. When a players Crazy Bones have all been knocked over, that person loses the game.

The mold was made using ComposiMold, we then poured Clear Casting Plastic into the mold and placed a tiny plastic man inside the liquid Clear Casting Plastic.

Turn a Glass Swan Into a Plastic Swan with ComposiMold

In today's project we used a glass swan figurine to make our own plastic figurine by using Clear Casting Plastic and a ComposiMold mold. Clear Casting Plastic is our jewelry grade, epoxy resin, that looks just like glass when it's cured. It is super easy to use too! Simply, mix Part A and Part B in equal proportions, by weight or volume, and pour it into your ComposiMold mold.


The supplies used for this project were:
ComposiMold-Original
Vegetable Oil Mold Release
Bubble Buster
Clear Casting Plastic our awesome Epoxy Resin
and a glass figurine of a swan

Remember: Thoroughly mixing this Epoxy Resin is very important. Be sure to scrape the sides of the cup to incorporate ALL material. Pouring slowly into your mold also decreases likelihood of bubbles forming in your final piece.

Today’s video is for Steven from the Philippians, he wanted us to create a tiny action figure accessory.

We decided it would be cool to create invisible medieval weapons for Wonder Woman to use against the wicked LEGO pirate. We looked through our box of toys and found a small sword; we then decided to make the sword transparent using Clear Casting Plastic. With the power of ComposiMold and Clear Casting Plastic an invisible sword was born!

ComposiMold-Food Contact, Perfect for Unique Chocolate and Fondant Shapes

ComposiMold-FC is a 100% reusable mold making material for chocolate, fondants, gum paste castings, and more. It's a flexible, rubbery, mold making material that works by melting and pouring. Many casts can be made using the same mold. ComposiMold-FC is good for the mold maker and confectionery artist because it can be reused to make different molds without worrying about wasting mold making material.

ComposiMold-Food Contact Video!

ComposiMold-FC is what we are demonstrating in today's video. We've placed a big stamp that you can buy in a craft store into a tin foil "mold box", coated it with Food Contact Safe Mold Release, and poured our melted ComposiMold-FC to cover the stamp. After the mold making material cooled and solidified, we removed the stamp, and looked at the awesome detail we picked up!

You can see we used milk chocolate as our casting material first and then we pressed purple fondant into it next. You can keep making castings until you have as many as you need.

Once you are finished with this mold, simply remelt the material and pour it over your next object. The possibilities are endless when it comes to custom cake decorating, sweet party favors, and one-of-a-kind edible gifts!

ComposiMold-Firm, Perfect for Sculpey Push Molds

ComposiMold-Firm is a firm mold making material that is also a 100% reusable mold making material. It works by melting and pouring. ComposiMold-Firm is a flexible, rubbery, thermoplastic that is great for mold parts that require a stiffer mold making material. It is compatible with many different casting materials including clays, plaster, cement, epoxy, polyurethane, and many others. You can use ComposiMold-Firm for polymer clay push molds such as Sculpey molds or Fimo molds.

This is what we are demonstrating in today's video, Sculpey being pressed into the ComposiMold-Firm mold. Being stiff enough to handle the pressure of the push-mold technique is one of ComposiMold-Firm's best features. The delicate casting will not become warped by a too flimsy mold. See for yourself, how we make earrings and apply the same technique to many arts and craft projects!
