Hi - I looked through this section but I could not find the answer. So here goes...
I have a digital image that I want to make into a mold. The back can be flat but I want the front the have the detail kind of like your dog one one Martha Stewart.
The logo is a Goblin for a high school. It is attached.
Do you have any recomendations on how to make this more of a 3D type mold?
You have two choices, you can purchase some non-toxic polymer clay and sculpt a three dimensional version of the image free hand and then bake the clay to harden it and then make a mold over that.
Your second choice is to take the digital image to a laser engraver. They can carve the image into plastic making it 3d like a stamp. Then you can make a mold over that with any of my food grade mold making products at www.MakeYourOwnMolds.com
Hope This Helps,
I didn't know there was such a thing. Can you recommend any brands?
I think you are asking about the polymer clay. There is a product in craft stores called Sculpey. Some of the varieties are non-toxic. This is basically a clay that you can sculpt and form and then bake at about 175 degrees. It hardens when backed and then can be used quite well for mold making.
Whoops! Didn't realize the "subject" line doesn't show up anywhere.
Yes, thanks, I wasn't aware that Sculpey now makes a non-toxic version. I'll check it out.
