The term reusable mold is used as a way to describe the ability to remelt and reuse the same mold making material for many different and unique molds.
- Current mold making materials can only make one mold. That mold can be used many times, but when you are finished making duplicates of your sculpture or artwork, the mold is no longer useful.
- These one-use molds are difficult to fix if you make mistakes because the material does not stick to itself or leaves markings where the patching has occurred.
- Current mold making materials are also expensive and priced out of reach for most potential mold makers, especially beginner mold makers.
