    These versatile moulds can be used to transform furniture, home decor, baked goods, soaps, jewelry, and anything else your creative mind can conceive. The IOD Décor Moulds are crafted from materials that are safe for food use (avoid using the same set for both food and crafts). 

    VARIOUS APPLICATIONS.

    IOD Décor Molds can be created with different mediums, the two most common options being air dry clay and casting resins.  Each medium possesses its own unique characteristics, challenges, and advantages.

    1. Air dry clay or paper clay: IOD paper clay is an air-drying artist grade medium that we particularly adore. Like most paper pulp-based air dry clays, it may exhibit some shrinking, warping, and cracking as inherent qualities. We appreciate these features as they contribute to a distressed, authentically vintage appearance. To apply moulded pieces, we recommend removing them from the mould while they are still moist and securing them to the surface using the appropriate glue for a good fit. For vertical surfaces, use a piece of low tack tape to hold the piece in place and prevent sliding.

    In most cases, a release agent is unnecessary as the casting will come out of the mould without any issues. However, if you encounter sticking problems, a light dusting of simple cornstarch or arrowroot can be an excellent choice as a release agent.

    2. Casting resins: There are excellent pourable resins available that offer entirely different qualities compared to paper clay. These resins do not shrink or warp, and the castings they produce are more consistent. These characteristics can be advantageous depending on your project. If you need to shape the castings to fit a curved surface, it can be accomplished by removing them from the mould before they completely harden.

    Casting Mediums

    DIFFERENT MEDIUMS.

    IOD Moulds can be used with many different mediums. We will cover the two most common here. Every medium has its own characteristics, challenges, and virtues.

    Air dry clay, or paper clay: IOD paper clay is an air dry medium, and one of our favorites. Like most paper pulp based air dry clays, some shrinking, warping, and cracking is inherent. We like these qualities for a distressed, authentically vintage look. Our favorite way to apply moulded pieces is to remove them from the mould while still moist, and adhere to the surface with the appropriate glue so it conforms well. For vertical surfaces, use a piece of low tack tape to hold it in place so it doesn’t slide.

    Casting resins: There are some great pourable resins available. These have completely different qualities than the paper clay. There is no shrinking or warping, and the castings are more consistent. Depending on the project, these qualities can be helpful. If you need to conform them to a curved surface, this can be done if removed from the mould before it’s completely hardened.

    On releases: We find that most of the time a release is not necessary and the casting will come out without the use of a release, however, if you are having trouble with the material sticking (more common with clays than resins), a light dusting of simple cornstarch or arrowroot is a great choice.

    Cleaning

    Clean your mould with mild soap and water. Let them dry face-down on a towel. Store Flat until ready to use next time
