* candy molds for resin

Posted on January 24th, 2009 by maitreya. Filed under Resin, Wants.

I’ve used candy molds before for resin (scroll down to the dogwood flower with plastic embed).  In that test, it did work, but it destroyed the mold in the process.  Luckily, a whole sheet of candy molds is only like $2.  Different plastics are also likely to react differently, so even if it melts into a puddle of plastic goo, $2 per experiment is also not too bad.  Anyway, this is all just my half-hearted justification of buying some molds from Bake It Pretty.

I’ve wanted to try to make buttons ever since I started with resin, so the button molds were the “have to have it” item. I mean look at them.  (Picture from Bake It Pretty’s candy button tutorial)

I got the button lollipop molds too, which are on the larger side and are also more heat-resistant plastic.  Annnd, I got some owl lollipop molds.  I’m thinking owl necklaces for everyone.

And I might have also bought Blythe a cupcake-topper phone. :)

    Those buttons are awesome!

    Maybe we could set up a trade for an owl when you get around to making them? Anything futuregirl-y you’re interested in?

    Hey, thanks so much for the mention! And please let me know how the resin-experiment works out! I have heard that you can use these molds for plaster, but resin sounds way cool! Good luck!

    I am lucky enough to have a store that carried LOADS of these molds. I got the button molds there, it is nice to not pay shipping once in awhile. Those buttons are the cutest. Got the glassine bags at WalMart. Martha Stewart had them in her Cookie book with a large cookie in them for gifts. So, that gave me a huge box of them to use.

    Ooops, I liked, this is Martha used CD envelopes, I love them, and you get quite a few in the box.
