Look Ma! No-Gelatin!!!! It's Mold Rubber MONDAY... Make an AMAZING No-Gelatin Printing Plate
by Susan M. Brown
Welcome to another Mold Rubber Monday! Susan here to bring you a video introduction to mixing and preparing a mold using Amazing Mold Rubber... and also crossing off something on my creative "bucket list" – creating an AMAZING DIY No-Gelatin Printing Plate for monoprinting. There are loads of DIY tutorials online on how to make one of these with Knox Gelatin, but I thought I would do some experimenting and give this a try using the new Amazing Mold Rubber! Today I'm sharing my results – ENJOY :)
Amazing Mold Rubber is an easy to use, high strength liquid silicone mold making rubber that is strong, soft and flexible - great for undercut parts and cures in approx. four hours. Amazing Mold Rubber is a two-part liquid rubber used to make extremely elastic molds to produce quick and exact reproductions of your original. Replicas can then be cast in Amazing Casting Resin, Amazing Clear Cast Resin for plastic parts - or use other materials such as plaster, wax, clay or polyester... and that's just the beginning to all the fabulous uses just waiting to be discovered!
After four hours my Amazing Mold Rubber was fully cured and my AMAZING No-Gelatin Rubber Plate was ready for a joyride! This second video is a test run on my faux gelatin plate... and my FIRST TRY at Gellin'...
Isn't this totally AMAZING!!! Now I have two plates in different sizes that I can use simultaneously for double the mixed-media fun! I can totally see how this can become addictive. Here is my first three-paint layer monoprint and I can't wait to make more.
What are your creative plans using
the New Amazing Mold Rubber???
