Sugar beer bottle mold using Silicone Plastique??? - Page 2

post #16 of 24
LOL thanks... Every name I tried was used and I kept getting the "This name is in use" message...

I still think I need a couple more coats on my mold for it to hold up under use. So it will probably be around 12 coats total by the time it's done. Hubby said he thinks it's ready to peel off the bottle *now*, but I am not that confident yet...

The very first coat I let dry for about 3 or 4 hours. I could tell that it was really good and dry. It wasn't squishy or sticky at all, so I felt ok with putting the second coat on. Then I went to bed and let it dry overnight.

The mold builder turns kinda like a clear yellowish color when it's dry. When I see that, I kinda touch it to make sure it feels dry, then apply the next coat. I have a little space heater that I sat on the table next to the mold to help it dry. I'm probably just wasting electricity though because it really doesn't take very long for it to dry at all. You'll be able to tell when it's ok for the next coat.

In my picture, the mold is dry, so you can see what color it turns once it is built up with layers of the mold builder.

The product I am using is actually called "Mold Builder, and it's made by Castin' Craft. It's in a while lil' tub with a purple label. I bought it at Michael's and it was $12.99. There is a picture of it that someone on CC posted of it, either in this thread or the other sugar bottle thread.

Thank you 'ThisNameInUse' icon_smile.gif I think is the same stuff I saw at Michaels...I think I will buy it. I was thinking on ordering other molding stuff on-line, but it's very expensive. If this works that's what I'll use.
Your mold is coming out perfect, congratulations!!

BTW, did you buy a especial brush to apply it?
Ok, thank you!!!

Click that, Rosie2!

No special brush...it was maybe an inch wide, came in an economy pack of lil craft brushes...nylon brush maybe? It was easy to wash out.

Thanks for showing how you made the mold. I don't think that's the same stuff i bought at michaels. My silicone stuff was pink, like bubblegum. I certainly don't think i could've brushed it on,as it dried way to quick.

haha thanks...I dunno about pro, but I am getting better with each bottle. I cannot believe how easy it is. I made 3 in a matter of a couple hours this evening.

I can't believe that something so awesome was so simple....that never happens.

Everyone who is even thinking about wanting to do this but is afraid to, JUST TRY IT! You will be so surprised at how easy it is, and you'll be so proud of yourself and your very cool bottles!

Hi! Thanks so much for showing your painted mold using mold builder. I am trying this right now and I think I am doing it right, but who knows...
How many coats did you actually end up with? And...once you make the sugar form..how do you store the sugar bottle? My cake needs to be completed by Saturday. Thanks so much!
