Help me find this mold? Please?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I came across this photo online and like the bride in the post, I fell in love with the chocolate topper. The problem is I can't find a mold, or one similar, online ANYWHERE. I've looked and looked. I've seen several bride and groom chocolate molds and one of those will do if I have to use it, but I absolutely love the french touch this one has. Can anyone offer any suggestions? Thanks so very much!

I'd venture that that's a custom made mold done from some antique French, German, or Japanese figurines like these:

I could see modifying the mold so that a heart could be placed and then the entire scene set on a single base.

I really doubt that you'll find the mold pre-made.

Anyone making custom molds would charge a good bit of $ to make one of these.

I was thinking I might try making one out of silicon since I'm coming to the same conclusion you've mentioned.

Yep, I think that's the way to go.

I'd contact Dominic in the Make Your Own Molds forum on here. He'll have a good idea of all of the supplies you'll need.

Please post pics of the process & the finished product.

Good Luck!

you might want to contact laduree in paris and see if they sell that topper. It's on their website. I'm sure it's a custom topper but you never know. Might be worth an email.

Thanks for the fantastic suggestions. I've been looking on ebay for figures I might like to mold. I'll let you know how it turns out!

If you get the piece, go to Michaels and buy some "Amazing Mold Putty" and you can make our own. It's about $20 for the pkg., and with a coupon you'll save a ton. It's easy as can be to use. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDtCBEAWSvE

cownsj, thanks for the tip. I was just wondering if Michael's had that kind of thing.

It's by their clay modeling stuff. At least in our Michaels.

I am a huge fan of Amazing Mold Putty, and use it all the time. For this, however; unless you can roll out a big piece and cover it with one piece, you will get lines or seams. For something like this, I too recommend Make Your Own Mold, and Dominic will help you with the process, if you need it.

I use Amazing Mold Putty all the time for simple items. It's easy to run out and get in an emergency or to just keep on hand,

but Dominic really is " 'da man" when it comes to making molds for complicated, finely detailed 3-D items. His input--for both materials and technique-- would be invaluable for something so important.
