I decided to try pouring the mold first, then setting the object on it to see if it would work.  That is what you had in mind???

I am the impatient type, so to speed things up, I poured ice water in a bowl.

Melted some of the leftover mold material, & poured it into a small plastic container, which I set in the ice water to help it to setup faster.

I immediately pushed the bauble to be molded onto the top of the mixture, as far in as I wanted, then held it there for about 5 minutes so It wouldn't sink in further, then put it in the frig to finish cooling.

20 minutes later, it came out of the frig, and out of the plastic container with ease, once I broke the suction around the edges.

I pulled the mold away from the edges of the beads, instead of trying to pull them out of the mold.  It released easily that way.  Then the gumpaste went in.

Here you have the end result.  This was using the mold material that has been re-melted for the third time.  Still feels very flexible, like the original.  Hope this helped to answer a few more questions.

Thank you!

As you can see in the last picture, I did not have the pin quite flush in the mold mix.  So the detail on half of the petals holding the pearls is not as defined as the other half.  So keep that in mind.  As flush & even as possible.  I am ALWAYS impatient, so can not keep still-lol.

Have fun, & be sure to post those pics!!

Just remember, that if this were a one time only project, you can remelt the molds at any time, to make new molds.  Have fun, and thanks again for the update

And Merry Christmas!

Thanks yes actually I goofed up the first one when one of my studs slid and turned sideways (i didn't realize till it was set) so I melted it back down and tried again it was perfect!! And I'm already planning to melt them down for a friends frozen themed cake in a few weeks, I'm thinking icicles and snowflakes!!

Thanks so much for posting this, I wanted to buy a number of different lace molds but they were so expensive I haven't been able to justify the cost for a one off cake.  I have been doing some research on the internet and found this post, should have known to come here first!  My Mum also has some beautiful brooches that I know she will let me borrow to practice.  I love the idea of making different designs other than the ones that are all over the internet that anybody can buy.  Thanks for your hard work you have just saved me a lot of time.

810whitechoc,

 

Certainly hope you can use it.  I just purchased a few small pieces of lace, nothing fancy, still cannot find the thickly patterned kind I am looking for, but hope to soon have time to practice with them. 

Please keep me posted on any lace molds that you do, and any techniques that you come up with that helps the procedure along, and a few pics would be nice too.  Thanks!

 

Merry Christmas!

Happy New Year everyone!!

I have had time to play!  And now I am praying that we do not get hit with the predicted snowfall, and high tides, that I am hearing about on the tele.  So on to more mundane things...

I found a fairly decent piece of ribbon type applique, it has a nice depth & design.  This piece is 6 1/2 inches long without stretching or distorting it any, showing 3 complete & equal sections of the design. 

100_8887.JPG?width=750

I wanted it thick, so I glued the applique to a piece of cardboard, with a lot of easy release rubber cement, under the applique piece to hold it down & on top to help stiffen & protect it.  Then I taped the cardboard to the bottom of the container.   I coated the lace & the cardboard with a thick coat of coconut oil to help it release better before pouring in the mold mix, and as you can see, it worked well.  The lace is not damaged.  And if needed, it should wash up nicely.  Black was the only color I could find.

The gumpaste lace applique with the thickness of the cardboard showing.  Can be used as is if desired.

 

100_8896.JPG?width=750

  Here the cardboard boarder has been cut away, leaving a nice thick piece of gumpaste applique.

I think I got it a little too thick. lol   But at least now I have a way of getting the depth or thickness that I want. 

 
 
100_8906.JPG?width=750
Three 6 1/2" sections fitted together.  It worked!  This would look nice on a cake.
 
I am getting the hang on how to work with these pieces finally.  I have a larger piece of actual lace to do it with, now that I have worked out a satisfactory way to do it, & enough nerve to try it.  I am really quite pleased with how this project turned out.
