Silicone Molds From The Bargain Rollback Company

Fun With Silicon Molds - Polymer Clay TutorVideo #711: Although these molds are not made specifically for polymer clay, I was still able to find some creative uses for them.

In today’s demo, I am going to show you some silicone molds from BagainRollback… they were kind enough to send me some samples to demo for you.

I show samples of several Silicone Molds (Heat Safe), as well as Silicone and Rubber Molds (Not Heat Safe).

Direct links to the the specific products are listed below the video on this page.

The Bargain Rollback company also carries Silicone and Plastic Molds that are not heat safe… more suited for use as (very fun) Ice Trays.

In this video I discuss the differences between the different silicone molds and some ideas for using them with polymer clay (liquid and solid), resin, ice, and chocolate.

In the video, I forgot to mention that these moulds can also be used for plaster, soap, ice cream, candy and probably a ton of other things if you put your mind to it.

Do you have any suggestions for videos on tips, techniques or products you would like to learn more about? Let me know in the comments section below!

My goal is to help you to learn quicker and easier ways to bring up the professionalism in your polymer clay art.

    Good demo Cindy, of the different silicon molds and clever ways to use them.
    I mostly make my own after discovering the magic of silicon a few years ago. I find if I put the filled molds in the freezer for about ten mins to firm them up it is easy to pop them out for baking. I have to support them by placing on a tray or stiff piece of cardboard and also let them dry first before putting them in the oven.
    My last Christmas market is this Saturday. It is being held in the new Woodland centre in support of British Wildlife. I have been very busy for the last three Saturdays but this is the last one until the New Year.
    I have been making miniature Christmas trees, about 5 inches tall, also using my pyrography machine to personalise my wooden items. Then I will have to concentrate on getting my place clean and put the decoration up. My visitors arrive on the 19th so I will have to box up all my tools and polymer clay and find a place to store it all.
    I wish everyone a wonderful holiday and a Happy New Year and look foreward to seeing what you have in store for us……..cheers xx……..

    Merry Christmas Elaine and a Happy New Year to you too! Have a wonderful time with your company. Don’t let your clay supplies be stored for too long… they will miss you if you do! :)

    Cindy, thanks for the very thorough review of silicone molds.

    Wonder if you would do another video on molds that would help producing identical shapes using polymer clay, like tiles, squares, rectangles, etc. Plenty of cabochon stuff out there, but I’m looking for molds that will reproduce many shapes at once, so they can be further laminated.

    If anyone out there has suggestions or sources, would surely appreciate your sharing some links.

    Think I just answered my own question, Wendy at Shades of Clay has the perfect types:

    If anyone knows of sources with similar types of molds, sure appreciate a link,

    Can You tap or lightly drop the mold after you put the liquid clay in like you would a cake to help with the bubble problem? I haven’t worked with the liquid so I was just wondering.

  6. Cindy Lietz, 16 December, 2015

    Hi Patricia, you can try that, but the liquid polymer clay is pretty thick and gluey… I found when I dropped or banged the mold on the table the bubbles didn’t really come to the surface that well…. not like they do if you’re molding chocolate. But it probably helps to at least draw them away from the front surface of your piece a little more.

  7. Paula Pope, 11 December, 2015

    When using the silicon mold and liquid clay, and we’ll use the snowmen for an example, do you need to put the cold scarf and hat and such in and bake that BEFORE pouring in the white for the body or can the white body be poured in on top of the colored scarf and then baked together? Will the colors run if different colored liquid clays come together?

  8. Cindy Lietz, 16 December, 2015

    I haven’t tried multiple colors in the same mold yet Paula, but I would imagine the colors would bleed or mix into each other if you tried to do more than one color at the same time. I would bake them (even if only a few minutes) in between adding each new color. Do let us know if you try it out yourself. I would be curious as to how well it turned out.

  9. Emily H, 15 February, 2017

    I use a lot of liquid polymer clay and silicone molds. Every time I bake the molds I keep getting bubbles. Is there anyway not to get bubbles?

  10. Cindy Lietz, 19 February, 2017

    Bang the mold on the table before baking to help get the bubbles to rise to the surface. That will help.

  11. Jocelyn C, 20 February, 2017

    Another hint Emily, do you have something at home that gently vibrates? If so popping the mold on it for a little bit will bring up lots and lots of bubbles……

    Hi Cindy I was wondering if u knew of a way to thicken liquid silicon for more moldable form I need it to stay translucent and food grade . I bought a food grade liquid two part but it’s too thin it says u can heat it to cure in 45 instand of 8 hours but I want something I can mold to form the object. Thank u in advance

  13. Cindy Lietz, 24 September, 2021

    Hi Sharon, I haven’t tried shaping a thin liquid silicon. You might be able to start letting it set and try molding it then, but I think you could run into issues with that. The better product for what you want to do would be a silicon molding putty, like Amazing Mold Putty. That material is designed to be molded and shaped, so you should have no problems using that. Save the liquid for molds you want to pour instead.
