Today I’m going to show you some really cool tips for removing polymer clay from your silicon molds.
Some brands of molds I use, include: Martha Stewart Clay Molds; Kraft Lady Art Molds from After Midnight Art Stamps; Wilton Fondant and Gumpaste Molds; Polyform Polymer Clay Molds; Amaco Clay Molds; Epoxy Jewelry Silicon Molds.
You can use silicon molds to make some really neat polymer clay embellishments like buttons, paperclips, charms, scrapbook embellishments and home decor items.
There are some tricks to using polymer clay in silicone molds… especially for getting the clay out of the molds.
Start with soft polymer clay. Soften it with Sculpey Clay Softener or baby oil if needed. Clean mold with baby wipe or softened piece of translucent polymer clay to remove any clay or lint in the mold.
Press softened clay into mold and trim off excess with a clay blade.
Stick the back of the molded clay to a shiny surface such as a glass mat, glass tile, mirror or piece of acrylic block and pull mold away from the clay. Of course this is much easier to understand if you watch the video than if you just read about it.
