Have you noticed an item in your home that you thought would make a unique candle and/or soap mold? Did you then realize that making the mold was a difficult and costly endeavor? This was truly the case until Miracle Mold Material (M3) came along.
We have selected a flower to use for this project, but you can use any similar object. The best project to get started with should be simple, until you learn how to work with the material.
The first step is to take equal part of the material (again, starting with something small and only using a small portion of the material). One is an ivory color and the other is yellow. Mix them together thoroughly by hand. You will know they are mixed together thoroughly when the material is a consistent yellow with no streaks. You will have to work fast because the material will start to set in about 5 minutes.
The next step is to take the material and form it around the flower. Make sure you apply pressure throughout the object and that there is some level of thickness to the material around the object. Depending on what the object is, leave the bottom of the object open so you can pour the wax/soap base into the complete mold. The thicker the molding material is, the more durable the mold will be in the future.
Once you have the material uniformly covered (leaving the bottom open), take the bottom of the mold/top of the candle and gently flatten it out so the mold will rest flat.
Let the product set, which generally takes 30-40 minutes, and then remove your object from the material. You now have your finished mold, and you can take the wax and pour it into the mold.
- Make your own custom candle and soap molds that are great for weddings, baby showers and other special events.
- Make your own embeds.
- Easy to mix by hand.
- No waste of materials - only mold to the level of the desired thickness of the mold.
- Very fast set-up time; no need to wait overnight to use.
- Can be used with wax or soap.
