1) Begin by selecting a simple object to make a mold of — making certain that it is dry and clean.
2) Amazing Mold Putty comes in two parts, measure out equal parts of both — enough to cover \your selected object. Set your timer for one minute and knead the two parts of the putty together until they create one uniform color with no streaks or striations.
3) Next set your timer for two minutes. Roll your putty into a ball and gently press it down onto the underside of your object. Roll the putty up the side of your object to capture all of the detail, doing your best to achieve a uniform thickness all the way around.
4) Allow the mold to sit for 15 to 20 minutes — during this time the mold cures into a flexible rubber. Afterwards, gently flex the sides away from your object and remove it.
5) Cast a custom molded soap by cutting glycerin soap base into small pieces and placing it in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave the pieces on high for 30 seconds, remove and stir. If there are any solid pieces remaining, microwave for additional 10 second intervals until the base is completely melted.
6) If desired, stir in soap colorant and fragrance.
7) Pour the melted soap mixture into your mold and allow it to sit for 40 minutes to an hour. When the soap is set and solid, gently flex the sides of the mold away from the soap and remove it.
• If you’re creating a mold from a rounded object, make certain to press your putty down on a flat surface before it sets, creating a base that allows it to sit upright.
• You can also use molds created from Amazing Mold Putty to cast objects in resin, plaster, wax, polymer clay and more!
• This putty is food-safe and can be used to cast chocolate, ice, gelatin and candy shapes OR bake with it up to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Just be certain that molds used for food — are just for food — don’t use them to cast other materials as well.
