I just used my silicone mold (not the pme people mold) and was having trouble pulling it without distorting it. So what I did was let it sit in the mold for half an hour or a bit more long enough for it to semi-harden> I then was able to carefully pull it out without distorting it. I am doing a second one and I wll leave it in longer for better result. I hope this helps.

I have found these People Moulds such an amazing product to use, I ordered one from www.sugarshack.co.uk and delivery was quick and have great feedback.

I have just purchased the pme people moulds today and was told to put wire in arms and legs so you have movement plus cocktail stick or spaghetti for neck/torso. I was also told to add edible clue to front and back to stick together while moulds are held together then sort off roll model dough out rathere than pull. anyone else tried this and does it work?

I don't own these so can't help, found the thread to be interesting.  But from my other molds I do freeze them.  But waiting 24 hrs to remove??? which of us can or wants to do this?  Sheesh...

 

But can I ask, Where did you purchase them from?

Sadly freezing won't work for me as I want to position legs arms etc not have them straight. But as I say just purchased will let you no how I get on next week once I've had a go.

I got the set from Amazon. It was $49 or so. I think they are too large for what I wanted. They are for sale. Used once, all parts included.... I was thinking $35 plus shipping...

I've used mine several times with no problems.  I use straight gum paste tinted to the skin tone desired, and wet one side of the filled mold then squeeze together for about a minute.  When unmolded, one side will pop off (usually the back), trim the excess while the piece is still in the mold.  Let it sit for a bit to firm up, put in any necessary supports (I do the head/torso support while it is still being pressed together to avoid distortion) then unmold and pose.  I let the peices completely dry independently then use gum glue to put together and dress.

 

I made all of these using the child mold.   The hardest part is cleaning the seam, still working on perfecting that.

 

The black haired one used a different gumpaste that wouldn't set well, so she looks a little squished.

@ HEREKITTY, someone mentioned on another thread that, she normally waits till the molds are completely dried, then uses a fine sandpaper on them. I have the molds but havent been able to try her technique yet.

I need to make a topper for a wedding but plan on making it out of Sculpy so that it will last forever and I too plan on greasing the molds first - for easier release.
