I want to make my own mold of a Harry Potter replica coin. I aim to fill the mold with chocolate. I have access to silicone plastique ONLY. Does anyone know how I would go about this? I want the top of the mold to be even so that when I fill it with chocolate it'll be flat.

Just press it into the mixed compound. Should work great.

Thank you! I guess I just have to try and get it level when I push it in?

Lisa, once you press the coin in, place something flat like a cookie sheet over the mold and coin and press down. That should give you a flat even surface. The trick will be getting the coin out without damaging the mold. I've never made a mold before but that's the part I don't get yet.

After you make your mold with the silicone plastique, melt the chocolate, pipe (or spoon) it into the mold. Then, tap the mold on the counter to level out the melted chocolate before it sets. This should give you a flat side.

Then, you can put it in the freezer for 5 minutes to quickly set up the chocolate. It should pop right out of the mold.

Good luck!

I'm guessing (also hoping :S) that once the mould cures that the real coin will pop straight out. I'm hoping it won't damage the mould because by them it should be flexible enough to bend and pop it out. Fingers crossed...

Thanks for your help icon_smile.gif
