Breathe new life into your furniture, walls, and more with our decor moulds. Our heat resistant moulds offer endless creativity with unique & detailed pieces. Use them with paper clay, ceramic clay, resin, candy/chocolate and more. food safe and heat resistant.
Depending on which medium you are using, you may find that a very light dusting of cornflour in the mould helps it release easier, especially with the air dry clay which tends to be a little more moist than the paper clay.
Simply press into the mould and remove all excess so it is even and only the depressed parts are covered.
If using clays, they are best attached to you piece whilst still wet, as they can be shaped to fit your surface and will dry in place. I like to put a coat of paint over mine, so that it slows the drying process and there tends to be less cracking.
I like the rustic look of a few cracks, but if you want a perfect finish, you can come back and fill in any cracks or imperfections with a little more clay and then paint again.
I like to use a flexible pva type glue that is available from Bunnings.
The new prima paper clay, picks up all the lovely detail in the moulds and is easy to use.
We now also stock Resin to use in your moulds
My new favourite air dry medium to use with this is the Darwi air dry clay. It is easy to work with and does not shrink or crack. It's fantastic.
