Dominic,
do u have any tips on making on making a martini glass mold w/ the copy flex silicone? It's such an odd shape I'm not sure how to do it correctly. I'm worried about it floating in the mold. Would Anchor-dit around the edge of the glass be enough to keep it on the mat? (I'm thinking it needs to be upside down on the mat) I watched the beer bottle video (Amazing teaching video work!) and it gave me a lot of info but this is such a different shape (plus no liquid in it to keep it from floating)

Thank you!
Melanie Mc.

Hi Melanie,

I am having people over for the Superbowl. I have answers for you but am in the middle of cooking a football feast. Please watch for my response tomorrow (Monday). Will that be okay?

Hi Melanie - First of all you must fill the martini glass with Safe-D-Clay and trim it so that it is level with the top of the glass. You then apply Anchor-Dit to the entire, clay-filled top and put this side down like I did with the beer bottle in the video. Press to create a smoosh and wipe the excess away and them position an appropriately sized mold box over the entire project and fill like in the bottle mold video. The next step is to cut down one side with a sharp knife. To use this mold you will fill the empty mold and pour out the excess just like making a sugar bottle.

Hope This Helps,

This would be so much fun to try to attempt, but have a question....
How long do these molds last? Or is it "how many pours" does it last?

I know, it's all about how you take care of it, but still wondered how well they hold up. Thank you.

Hi vickymacd - all of the silicone materials that I sell are of a commercial grade and are mean't to be used over and over again. One of the great advantages that we in the food industry have over other industries is that the materials we pour or press into our molds are silicone friendly. Chocolate, Sugar, Isomalt, Fondant, Gum Paste etc. do not take a toll on the silicone. Imagine casing with concrete, plaster, urethane casting resins and melted metal. These are the materials that wear a mold out. So, if you make the mold properly, you should count on that mold serving you well throughout your career.

Wow, thanks Dominic. That's great to know! I need February to go away as I'm too busy with the kids and school right now, and want to try this out sometime. This is so exciting to try out.
Thank you again for the wonderful videos that gave I'm sure all of us confidence to try it out and expand our knowledge of this craft.

I have made the martini glass mold and will get the tapes to Dominic this week. The glasses came out perfect! It is a big expensive to do this, but you have a mold for life. I have sent him pictures of the step by step, but will get the tapes out for him to edit.

Things that I learned, be patient, do it right the first time, be patient, Dominic knows what he is talking about, make sure you mold is equal on all sides, you will pay for it if it's not.

If someone wants a martini glass, I will make it for you at cost, if you don't have the time or money to make your own.

We are also working on sphere molds, Crown Royale, and an elephant mold. Will keep everyone posted.

Hi dosenroses,

Deetmar and I have some great tutorials that we have worked on. We have an incompatibility problem that we are working out so we can share what we did. It is a problem with the video format that we have to have changed so we can edit and create a good looking tutorial. Sorry for the delay, but we will eventually get it done. Stay tuned.
