A personal opinion I’m compelled to share: For the purpose of testing and reviewing Amazing Mold Putty, I used a pre-made skull from my stash — not something I sculpted. For me, molding other people’s work (as opposed to purchasing more of their work) falls on the unethical side of crafting. However, for the purpose of testing, I’m fine with it — better to test an unknown chemical compound on a mass-produced something than on a one of a kind that I spent hours sculpting. 😉
For years now, I’ve been looking at all sorts of mold-making kits. They seem complicated.
And a little scary.
So, I get intimidated and don’t buy. Until now. If you’ve ever been intimidated by mold-making products, let the intimidation end today.
A while back, two kickass friends gave me an Amazon.com gift certificate for my birthday — of course, I bought craft supplies. Including Alumilite’s Amazing Mold Putty.
I’ve been experimenting with it lately and I’m pretty excited. This stuff is super easy to use, requires no special equipment, doesn’t require you wear gloves or a dust mask, picks up great detail and tolerates temperatures up to 300°F (148°C) — meaning you can fill a mold with polymer clay and then toss the whole kit-n-kaboodle in the oven. Awesome.
Not too long from now, I’ll be posting why I’m so thrilled with this product, but for now, here is a simple explanation of how it works (and “simple” is all you need, I swear) and the results of my initial tests.
