Best Clay Molds

Smooth-On Silicone Mold Making, Liquid Rubber OOMOO 30, Easy to Use - Trial Size 2.8 lb
Use this silicone mold making rubber for making perfect reproductions that capture intricate detail of original models. OOMOO 30 is easy to use silicone rubber compounds that feature convenient one-to-one by volume mix ratios (no scale necessary). OOMOO30 is suitable for a variety of art-related and industrial applications including making molds for sculpture and prototype reproduction, casting plaster, resins and wax. MIX RATIO: 1A:1B BY VOLUME - Easy to use silicone rubber compound features a convenient one-to-one by volume mix ratio, no scale is necessary.
"The major problem I had with this product is that it has a very limited shelf life. Shelf life aside, it works well and does create good molds."
"Still captures all the details and textures of the master, and makes for really sturdy durable block molds."
"This stuff works just as well for the simple one part molds as it does for the more complex two part molds."
"I understand that shelf life is an issue for these products (they will harden in the bottles over time) but it would be more convenient if the product could be purchased in larger sizes for making larger molds. I had to order two trial sizes to make one not very large mold."
"I am sure for larger pieces (these are 2 letters with total size of about 1.5" x 1.5" ) where an air bubble or 2 would not hurt this would be perfect."
"My next buy will be some stronger, platinum-cure silicone since it seems to be the best for high temperatures, strength, and a quick cure."
"I couldn't figure out how to make a two piece mold so I just taped a model into a plastic cottage cheese container, head down, and poured the mixed product into the cup. I had pre-determined how much of the product needed by putting the model's head in the cup, filling with water to the depth that was needed, then using two clear plastic cups to divide it in half. I put one of the liquids in one cup, up to the line, and the other liquid in the other cup."
"The OOMOO is from the Tin line and Dragon skin is from the Platinum line."

Best Clays & Doughs

Polyform Sculpey Original Polymer Clay, 1.75-Pound, White
Perfect for everything from molded items to free form jewelry pieces; figurines; ornaments and scrapbooking embellishments. Shape; bake and once cool can be sanded; drilled; carved; glues; inked; painted with water based acrylics or Sculpey Brand Glaze. Sculpey clay is soft and pliable and won't dry out when exposed to air.
"Sculpey makes the clay in dozens of fun colors, I like the white for projects I intend to paint. Acrylic craft paint works just fine after the clay has been baked but you can also use stain like I did on my fairy house pictured."
"It's soft enough to work with after you knead/roll it, but once you let it sit and work on another area, it's no longer that soft (not that it hardens, but it's just not a smooth kind of soft...if that makes sense)."
"I made a sculpey model, baked it as suggested then put it in water for a few weeks without any fish. you have to bake it to the point just before it turns to a brown color to make sure the pores in the material are completely closed. Basically apply the paint, let it dry then bake the item in the oven like you do normal sculpey. I don't know if the things I made will last forever in the water, but some of them are 5+ years old and no sign of damage being submerged, removed and wiped off from algae or dirt and put right back in the tank."
"My sister wanted succulent planters in the shape of animals for her birthday and I didn't want to spend a million dollars, so I decided to make them for her instead!"
"I havent worked with clay much, but i needed to sculpt some horns for my familys halloween costume."
"It was tough at first, but after working it a little (as the instructions specify) it became very malleable and my 9-year old niece was having a great time making Christmas Ornaments for her mom!"
"Great for beginners to use without worrying about wasting more expensive and higher quality materials. As your hands warm it, it becomes much softer and potentially harder to work with, depending on what you're doing."
"I used this to make ornaments with my daughters hand print for Christmas."
