IOD Décor Moulds are made from food safe materials (do not use the same set
for food and crafts) and can be used to transform and create baked goods,
furniture, soaps, jewelry and more.
IOD Décor Moulds can be used with many different mediums. Every medium has its
own characteristics, challenges, and virtues. We will cover the two most common
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.
