1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Mold Question on: April 13, 2007 12:03:00 PM
This is my first time attempting to create ANYTHING out of class, so I wanted to ask for some advice. I am interested in creating a mold for a pendant that I wish to create. I heard that the Sculpey Bake and Bend was really nice for creating a double-sided mold, which is what I want to do. However, I couldn't find anything less than a massive kit for twenty bucks, when I only really want a couple of ounces of the clay.

So I wanted to know if creating a mold out of regular polymer clay would work just as well. And if that does work, is there any sort of tips that one might need in order to get the clay out of the unflexible mold without distorting any of the details? Is there anything that I should spray into the mold so that the clay will not stick, but pop out easier?

Any help that you might have would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
