Casting Silicone Moulds

Who else lives the rock and roll lifestyle? I have got to the age when Friday evening is no longer spent dressed to the nines going clubbing, but more like dressing in my PJ’s and crafting.

Hubby is out in the craft studio, yes I do share my love or art and craft with my husband and yes I am lucky! He is creating a tree branch mosaic in the shape of a motor home. Just because he can.

I, on the other hand have been preparing for Powertex workshops on Monday. I have two booked in.

The morning of Monday the 16th we are creating a mixed media canvas based on a memory or memorial with keepsakes. Then on the evening there is a fairy house workshop. For these I need to cast the silicone moulds for the doors and windows to go on the recycled coffee jar. I just wish I could get hold of more old teapots as those are fab as a fairy house.

I have used a mix of silicone moulds for my preparation. I like the Artyco large fairy door  and  castle window as it feels strong and solid like a castle door. But I also like casting the KatySueDesigns enchanted window with the extra ivy leaves and flowers.

I must admit, after trying a few silicone moulds from eBay and China, I much prefer the quality of the designs from these UK providers. The quality of the cast is exceptional and doesn’t break up on extracting.

Now it’s time for gin

Love ya bye
