Has anyone figured out how to make a latex mold for beads? I've seen them for sale online, but most of those molds are only 6" long. And I am wondering if making a mold would be that much of a headache.

I thought if we could make a beer bottle mold, we might be able to put our collective brains together to make a bead mold!

Thanks!!

That would be great for making face molds too!

That looks awesome! I got the 6oz trial pack. Have you used it before Jamie? Any suggestions?

I have seen this stuff sold for making "anatomically correct personal" (don't ask me where I saw this) molds before.....Hahhahah

You could make a RylanTy statue and dress it up like one of your kitchen chef statues ... Hahhaahah

I found a product called Elastack at the ABC Cake Shop in Phoenix my last visit there. http://www.sculpt.com/catalog_98/RUBBERS/Elastack.php This stuff is reusable....you melt it down to use it, make your mold, change your mind, remelt it and make a different mold unlike the Silicone Plastique from http://www.culinart.net/silicone.html . I now have both, some for a one use mold and one for the molds I want to keep and reuse for other projects. Came in a 3/4 lb package and ran about $15.

I had seen this stuff discussed on one of the Yahoo cake boards, but they said it couldn't find it here in the U.S. And, yes it is food safe http://www.sculpt.com/technotes/Tech_Sheets/TECH_SHEET_Elastack.pdf

Would this require batteries by any chance? icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Thank goodness there are people like bisbqueenb who are able to see past our silliness and actually help the OP. icon_biggrin.gif

love it can't wait till my check comes, you can do your face in plaster of paris, you have to grease up your face, and put straws in your nose or something you can breath out of, and of course do it with someone you trust lol, his came out cool kind of errie thought. i was thinking of asking my dentist for some algenate but the working time is short longer if you use warm water, it's what they take impressions with, i worked for him he'll probably give me some, but i really want to try this to, good thing i scrolled down and found the food safe one to use

This brought back memories from one of my art classes in High School. We molded our faces with plaster of paris and then painted them to make cool masks...........we had a very cool teacher!
