I'm wondering if anyone could help me in regards to mold-making for chocolates and jellied sweets. 

I am looking for a cost-effective way to create relativity detailed molds from 3d printed models. Silicone molding seems to be the most commonly suggested process, however at this stage it is somewhat out of my price range. Would it be possible to create useable molds using recipes that make use of gelatin as a setting agent? Or are there any other lower cost but still food-safe options? 



Any help is much appreciated, Cheers.

Thanks a lot for replying. I did come across that recipe actually, it was what brought me to this site, however i was unsure of whether a mold made from gelatin would be able to withstand the higher temperatures required for some sweets.

No they wouldn't but the youtube video on silicone molds would help.
