Make your own Silicone Cabochon Molds!

You will need Easy Mold Silicon Putty.
Looks like this.  I got it at Michael's with a 40% off coupon (19.99)
So I paid about $12.  It's food safe too! 
It has 2 jars.  1 white goop, 1 purple goop.

Make sure you have your desired item to mold ready to go.
This stuff dries fast!

Now, here's the hardest part...estimating how much
clay you need to make the mold you want.
I had a bunch of things ready to go and picked one that
 I thought would work in that amount of clay.
Some of them I made, I pressed too hard and they made
 holes out the other judge carefully.
Still worked though.

Take equal parts of each and mix them together.

Mix them until totally mixed.  Make a ball...smoosh it slightly
Press your object into the silicone.
Don't rock it around when you press...just set it straight into the clay.
It will need to dry for about 25 minutes.  Then it is flexible!
You can just push your item right out of the clay!
Then you can use polymer clay, fondant, chocolate, plaster,
resin...or other make a duplicate!

 I love this vintage cameo many possibilities!

And then you might try My Little Pony blind bag toys too!

Form with clay...
(note, it's hard to get a smooth polymer clay surface
when trying to fit in a mold...this would be
better with something poured in...)
And you've got a cute copy!
Yes, they would look cute as little chocolates on a cupcake! :)
And you might use all your silicone putty in one sitting...
This should at least give you an idea of about how much 1/2 pound makes.

I tried to fill the sides of the pony molds with other things...
Like a lego head...and don't look too close...yes, my son's tooth.
He had just pulled it out, so I thought--why not?
We made polymer clay ponies, painted some cute eyes
 on them and glued magnets on the back!

I hope you loved this tutorial!
There are so many options--I need more!
Let me know if you ever try this out!

Linking up to THESE parties this week!
