About Your Cold-Molds
When first made, silicone rubber molds exhibit natural release characteristics. Over time, this characteristic may diminish and your clay may begin to stick. If this occurs, apply a release agent such as CoolSlip or Modeler’s Silicone Mold Release to help ensure a clean release.
Please Note: The Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for this product should be read before use.
To use Cold Mold™ with Metal Clay, first knead together the two parts of the Cold-Mold compound until color is uniform.
Make a mold of a textured item you want to recreate (buttons, conchos, etc.) by pressing your pattern into the compound, then allow the mold to cure.
Once the mold is set you can remove the object.
Roll the metal clay to the desired thickness, press firmly and evenly into the mold. Peel the clay away from the mold; the details of the mold will be captured in the clay.
Trim away any excess clay; dry, sand, fire and finish your piece like you would any other metal clay piece.
After firing, your pure silver piece reflects the pattern you created! Keep the mold to use again and again.
