Good luck with that one. Silicone molds are just plain ol expensive, but worth it for the most part.
Have you checked on ebay? I have purchased several from ebay and am very happy with price and quality! One seller I buy from is http://members.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewUserPage&userid=sweetexpress but I have bought from others as well.
Good luck! icon_smile.gif

Oh yes, they are expensive. I am actually planning on selling them on the online supply store I am working on.

Yes, they sure do work with fondant and gumpaste! Just keep in mind if the candy/chocolate mold is deep your piece will be heavier so you might not want to use the full depth of the mold. If it is not a deep mold then you can fill it up, level it off and attach to buttercream or fondant....whichever you are using. icon_smile.gif

I use the plastic molds too. I've found that it's easier to get the fondant out if I use Pam spray instead of cornstarch in the mold. There are some really neat ones that are made for fondant...google "fondant baroque mold".

Try the clay aisle at Michael's, JoAnn's or Hobby Lobby. With a 40% or 50% coupon the prices are pretty reasonable. Sculpey I think is the brand name and they have a decent variety.

What about soap molds?

Soap molds are usually pretty big.

I saw silicone molds for clay at Hobby Lobby today. I've heard before that some of the clay molds aren't food safe but I'm pretty sure the silicone ones would be.

they have those "guest soap" molds that have small-er cavities - again like the candy ones you'll probably want to make that figurine "hollowed" so its not as heavy.
