About the seller

 Descriptions of molds are as follows:

Latex only molds are made without any type of backup. These must be embedded into a pile of sand, foam packaging peanuts or by creating your own backup which will allow the mold to hold it's shape while being poured. This type of mold can be used with plaster or concrete and create 100's of statues.

A latex & fiberglass mold is a latex mold that comes with a fiberglass backup which holds the shape of the latex while it is being filled. This mold works with plaster or concrete and will create 100's of statues.

A latex & plastic mold is a latex mold that comes with a lightweight plastic backup that holds the latex mold in shape while it is being poured. These molds are a great solution for those who want a quick & easy mold that works by itself but is inexpensive and very easy to use. This mold works with concrete or plaster and will create 100's of statues.

ABS PLASTIC ONLY  molds can be used all by themselves. You just pour, set and unmold! These molds are great with plaster, concrete, wax and candy. The strength of the plastic varies with the size of the mold we are creating. Plastic molds can last for years and create 100's of statues when taken care of properly.

     Please read this fact sheet carefully. It is filled with tips that will make your casting experience
a fun and exciting time. I have been casting for over 20 years so the tips on this sheet are from my
own personal experience and I hope you find them as useful as I have over the years.
     About my plastic molds. I use a variety of plastics such as abs and poly plastics that range from
030 - 1/8 th" thick. When using plastic molds you can  cast plaster, concrete, clay, wax, soap, candy  and some cool setting resins. When casting plaster or concrete I suggest using soy or motor oil. as a  release. Just lightly oil the mold getting into all the detail to prevernt chipping when you unmold .
LATEX MOLDS NEED NO RELEASE AND OIL WILL DESTROY LATEX MOLDS! You should also check  with the manufacturer or the product you are casting if it is anything other than plaster or concrete. Also if you are looking at the molds online and if a mold looks delicate it will most likely be more fragile  and create a more delicate piece so the right casting materials are important to the success of your finished piece. You can get many of your casting supplies at Home Depot or Lowes. Two of my favorites are  quickcrete underlayment or cement all rapid set for the thinner and more delicate castings., tiles, trims, etc.
For regular stepping stones  and castings over 1/2" thick regular quickcrete concrete mix will  work
nicely.  You can also use fast setting quickcrete concrete but this has a tendency to crack so keep a moist towel over the casting while drying. If it sets too quickly it will crack while in the mold.
I do supply casting recipes but it is easier to buy the premixed concrete where all you have to
do is add the water and mix to pancake batter like consistency. The mix should flow into the mold!
 When your casting is ready to take out of the mold gently go around the  sides of the mold pulling
up and then push in the center. That should allow the casting to fall out of the mold. On some molds you may have to go around a few times as castings with high points tend to stick more. Make sure to clean your molds after every use with some soap and a gentle scouring pad. This will keep your molds working like new. All molds will wear out over time and use but doing this will greatly improve the amount of castings you  will get out of your molds.
Mis 1 1 part cement 2-3 parts sand and mix with water till like pancake batter.
Mix 2 1 part cement 2-3 parts sand 2-3 parts aggregate and mix with water until like pancake batter.
Mix 3  (fast setting) 1 part cement 1 part white sand 1 part plaster and mix with water unitl it is semi fluid and will flow into the mold. This mix will set quickly so be careful not to make too much at one time.
Good luck and thank you for your greatly appreciated business!
