Sofia the First Chocolate Cake Topper Clover Disney




Sofia the First Cake Topper

 
First secure Clover to the bottom of a plastic cup using hot glue. Melt and pour the ComposiMold until it fills at least a quarter inch above Clovers head. Allow the ComposiMold to cool until it becomes rubber like. Remove the mold from the cup and pull Clover out of the mold.
One of the nice things about ComposiMold is that it is flexible making it easy to removing object from the mold, plus its transparent so if you need the cut the mold you can see were the cuts line up.  I chose to cut the mold down the center of clovers tail; the tail is the most fragile part of the mold so cutting down its center will allow me to remove the chocolates easily without the risk of losing the tail.
Next heat and pour the chocolate. Heat the chocolate no hotter than 100 degrees Fahrenheit, add Paraffin wax if you want a nice, glossy finish. Wait for the chocolate to cool, and then remove it from the mold. The chocolates will cool faster if you place the mold in the fridge or freezer.
Now paint! I used gel food coloring but you can also use colored chocolates as your paint or just add food coloring to white chocolate to make your own colored chocolate.

ComposiMold's Soy Wax Product Demo (Make a Custom Olaf Birthday Cake Candle and More!)


Now you can make a custom prize candle, diamond candle, birthday candles, led candles, man candles, and other homemade candles.

ComposiMold’s Soy Wax is a great casting material; it looks nice and works great with ComposiMold molds. ComposiMold’s soy wax has one of the lowest melting points of all available waxes with a melting temperature of just 120 Fahrenheit, plus its plant based.


 
Once you are ready to create a unique candle, place the soy wax flakes in a microwave safe container and heat it at 1 minute intervals until completely melted. Wait for the wax to cool below 130 Fahrenheit before pouring it into your mold. In the meantime go ahead and prepare the wick, poke a hole in the mold were you want the wick to go then force the wick through the hole. Pull the wick all the way through the mold and secure it so that it will end up in the center of the candle, then tape up all the seams/cuts in the mold. Once the wick is prepped and if your wax is cool enough you can pour it into the mold.
You will have to wait a couple hours before removing the candle from the mold, then all you need to do is trim the wicks and you have yourself a unique custom candle.
It’s as easy as that, Place it on a cake and light it up!

Make Your Own Mood Ring or Necklace, Color Changing Plastic Heart

Thermo-chromatic ink is awesome! We've added it, in powder form, to our Clear Casting Plastic and made our own "mood necklace" that changes color when activated by heat.


ComposiMold-Original was used as the mold making material and our favorite epoxy resin, Clear Casting Plastic, was the casting material. You can easily add powder colorants and even 3-dimensional items like foam hearts to the mixture before it cures.

Stan is thinking this would be a great anniversary gift for his wife. What do you think, ladies?

Mould and Cast Silicone Objects in ComposiMold. Make Dog Toys, Pet Toys, Bouncy Balls, Rubber Toys and More!

Yes, you can use silicone in a ComposiMold mold.
We frequently get asked if silicone can be used in ComposiMold, Here is a video that specifically shows how it is done from mixing the silicone to de-molding.
I looked in the toy box and found a bear that we have used for past projects.  I decided to mold it and create a rubber bear! It’s so much fun to throw around and the dogs love it!

ComposiMold Preparing and Taping GreenLight Maine Television Show

Watch as the ComposiMold team prepares for the taping of our episode of Greenlight Maine. You'll see that we spend a lot of time preparing our presentation with 4 of us speaking. Go big or go home, right?! However, once we arrived at the Husson University recording and production studios, we learn that only two of us will fit in the frame properly. Time to practice the entire script! Yikes!





Thanks to the entire production staff of Greenlight Maine and some quick thinking on Stan's part, we think we pulled it off!

Stay tuned for more information on the air date of our show. We know it's in September and we think we can wait until then to learn if we have moved on to the next round, again!

Concrete, Dogs, Gardens and Moulds; Duplicate and Create a Concrete Poodle, German Shepherd, or French Bulldog using ComposiMold!

This video will teach you how to make and duplicate a large concrete Poodle, German Shepher, French Bulldog and other types of garden statues.
 

 
·         First create your mold box.
o   For best results use wood that has been sealed
o   Spray with a heavy coat of mold release.
§  The pieces that I used were not sealed so it made it challenging to remove the pieces from the mold.
o   The mold box is 12”X18”X29” We made sure the mold was at least 1inch thick around the entire statue.
o   Fill in all the cracks where your liquid mold making material ComposiMold could escape.
§  I used silicone caulking to too fill in the gaps and cracks. If you want to guarantee the ComposiMold wont escape, fill the mold box with water and see if it can hold without any problems.
·         Prepare your master.
o   Make sure your master is sealed.
o   Coat it with mold release.
o   Place it in the mold box and spray it with a heavy coat of bubble buster.
§  Bubble Buster is a great way to prevent bubbles from sticking to your part by breaking surface tension and allowing the bubbles to rise to the surface.
·         Create your mold
o   Melt the ComposiMold in a 55 gallon drum or a double boiler
§  Use heat belts that have a maximum temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
§  We used about 250Lbs of ComposiMold for this project.
·         Demold
o   For large projects like this wait 24 hours before removing the mold box.
§  If it still feels soft it has not finished cooling.
o   We chose to pour the mold in one part which means that we had to cut the mold in order to get the original statue out.
§  This process does work, however I would highly recommend creating a parting line ahead of time by inserting a plastic sheet where you want the mold to come apart before pouring the ComposiMold. This will make demolding a lot easier and a nicer looking mold.
o   Once you do get the original out of the mold coat it with mold release then put the two halves back together in the mold box and prepare it for the cement.
 
·         Create your duplicate
o   Use Pro Finnish 5000 concrete mix made by Quickcrete (or similar) which can be found at most hardware store.
§  Pro Finnish 5000 works great with ComposiMold and only takes 14 hours to cure.
o   Mix 80 pounds of cement with 1 gallon of water.
o    Pour the concrete into the mold one section at a time making sure all the areas of the dog filled especially its nose.
§  A hammer drill works great for vibrating the mold allowing the cement to flow throughout the mold.
o   The cement should be removed from the mold after 14 hours to allow it to finish curing.
o   Gently remove the duplicate from the mold to prevent cracking and damage.
o   Admire your creation then create more or re-melt the mold and make a new mold.

ComposiMold as Rubber Casting Material for Biodegradable Fishing Lures

I think we've got a bite! 

video


You can use ComposiMold as a biodegradable rubber casting material to use as a fishing lure! We simply added 3 Tablespoons of cornmeal and some food coloring to the melted ComposiMold and poured it into our ReMold Putty mold.

Now we can add a hook and we've got ourselves a winning fishing lure that will slowly dissolve in water. This means, you will not be harming the environment if your lure gets away...just like the last "big one" did...

Cut Block Mold Making Technique for Complicated and Fragile Parts

Once again ComposiMold proves its user friendliness...

Not only can you see through the material to be sure you are liking how your molds and casts are coming out, but you can also work with fragile and complicated parts by cutting the mold with a sharp clean knife.



In this example of the "cut block" technique you will see how we made a cut down a center parting line of our master object to be able to remove it from the cooled mold. We left a large portion of the mold intact so it will line back up with we make our casting.

We wanted to be sure that we casted the tail of this little lion and that it didn't break when we removed the fragile chocolate version. It was a success!

Don't be afraid to cut the mold, tape it back together if needed, and make your casts. We don't call ComposiMold user friendly for nothing!

Make A Fairy garden!
 
Today we made a fairy garden! We used ComposiMold, a mould making material that is similar to silicone. However, unlike silicone molds ComposiMold can be re-used / re-melted. I was given the Fairy to mould a year ago but never got around to moulding it. Now that the flowers are out the Tooth Fairy sculpture seemed like the perfect project! It doesn’t get much cooler than mushrooms, Fairies, and flower gardens.

Make unique one-of-a-kind Concrete statuaries, stepping stones, rock walls, sculptures, and water baths. Your mold sizes can range from a couple of cubic inches to the size of a bird bath.

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!
