Repairing an AMP mold

Have you ever cast a mold with Amazing Mold Putty only to realize that you pressed your image down too hard and you have small tear? Well this is an easy way to repair it!

Mix a small amount of part A and B together
Then smooth it over the back side of the tear. You will also want to press the mold back down (repaired side down) on the table making it even, so that when you add your resin the mold will sit level. 

After repair

If it is not as smooth on the inside of the mold as a you like, then you can add more mold mixture to the inside. Smooth it out well and I even place my item back in the mold to repair the cast. 

Now it is as good as new and ready to cast a mold!

I have had to do this several times and as long as you blend the putty out thin it will work well on the inside too. As long as you aren't trying to repair a detailed design.
