Do you know of anyone that can make custom silicone molds?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

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.

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

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.

Of course we all have our limits, but how can you possibly find your boundaries unless you explore as far and as wide as you possibly can? I would rather fail in an attempt at something new and uncharted than safely succeed in a repeat of something

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.
