Hi, I'm trying to find someone that can make a fairly large, poured silicone mold for me. I paid an etsy seller months ago, and they have basically run off with my money. It's past my 45 day limit to file a dispute :( NEVER AGAIN! Any suggestions?

What is it of? I know costumeczar makes molds, but I am not sure if she does poured ones. She has an etsy shop, too.

http://www.makeyourownmolds.com/ is probably cheaper then getting someone to make it ( and then ship ) it to you.

 

From what I've seen in the past, they also had someone here in CC to help people using the product. http://cakecentral.com/u/725305/myom-dominic

 

Edit: Or like Anna said, if you're looking for something smaller or specific some CC members already have stuff available for sell.

If you paid with a credit card you can do a chargeback. If not you can still tell etsy about the seller so no one else will get scammed

Hi!


Did you have any luck with getting the mold?

I need a custom made mold for a Project, and struggle to find someone who can help me. I am very interested in hearing about Your excperience.

I made this small mold with stuff from @costumeczar 's etsy site:  https://www.etsy.com/listing/198410777/120-grams-silicone-mold-putty-for-making?ref=shop_home_active_3

top right is a ceramic fridge magnet that I pressed into the fresh molding material, the two left pieces are fondant pressed with the mold.  bottom left is hand painted.

I can make custom molds but it would depend on what the item to be molded is. I just made a couple for someone who (I think) was using them to make costumes of a video game character. I don't ask, I just make them...

 

If it's something that is fairly simple in shape and doesn't have a lot of undercuts it will work best with the kind of putty @MBalaska used. If it's something larger or something that needs to be three-dimensional the pourable silicone might work better, but that involves a lot more preparation and structure for the mold pouring process.
