Another AMAZING Mold Rubber Monday... Molding Tips and Tricks with Susan M. Brown {sbartist}

Welcome to another Mold Rubber Monday! Susan here to bring you some tips using Amazing Mold Rubber which is now available at Hobby Lobby Stores. I was visiting my family in central FL over the weekend and there was a brand new Hobby Lobby near my sisters' house in Winter Springs. I had to make sure to run in and go find all the Alumilite and Amazing Crafting Products


Hobby Lobby has Amazing Crafting Products located in two places; on the polymer clay aisle and also in the hobby department where you can find the Alumilite Dyes and other moldmaking kits/products.


The Amazing Mold Rubber was on the shelf and I couldn't resist taking a selfie... since my headband is on the box. YES! I shamelessly made a spectacle of myself and embarrassed my mom, too ;)

 

You can fill your Amazing Mold Putty molds with Amazing Mold Rubber to make custom stamps! This is the man in the moon mold I made for my Halloween Tag last month. I had a little Amazing Mold Rubber left over from a batch so I filled a bunch of molds I had sitting on the table.

 

PRESTO-CHANGO!!! I now have several stamps of my molded items. And my grapefruit slice... the Amazing Mold Rubber stamp detail is so much better than the stamp I made using Amazing Mold Putty pressed into my original mold.


**A TIP** Make sticky cleanup easy with Rubbing Alcohol in a mini spray bottle. This works with the Amazing Mold Rubber as well as resin, too!


I generally mix up the entire container of Amazing Mold Rubber, which makes things quick and easy. So I prepare many things to mold so the entire batch gets used. Amazing Mold Rubber can be poured in multiple layers and will seamlessly fuse together. So if you don't have enough to completely fill your mold box, you can come back later and add more later.

 

This is a tray containing five items that I started to mold about two months ago.

 

You want to be sure to tape or hot glue items down
so they don't float or flip over during curing.


I left a little breathing room around each item so that the Amazing Mold Rubber can fill in between each item and create defined mold shapes.

 

This is after first pour, which was a leftover portion of my batch. I let this cure and continued adding additional Amazing Mold Rubber to it three more times until all items were completely covered.

 

Four pours later... here is my completed mold. I had to add some tape to build up the depth of the tray so that I could pour and completely cover items by at least 1/8". The glass pieces are large and thick so I made it a little thicker for durability.

    

After a quick trim of some fringe that leaked under items... my mold is ready at last.

With a little preparation - and patience...
you can utilize every last drop of Amazing Mold Rubber 
and have a collection of fabulous molds at the ready!

 
Now a teaser... Join me Wednesday, Nov. 13th over at the Viva Las VegaStamps! Blog to see what I'm doing with this mold of a rubber stamp. YES!! You can use Amazing Mold Rubber to create a mold from rubber stamps... and without the woes of molding using Amazing Mold Putty.
