Casting silicone?

Hi Paige!

Thanks for this interesting course. Curious, though; if I'm casting the silicone instead of using it as the mold-making material, which substance would you recommend for the mold?

Hi Johan,

To make a mold for silicone casting, I would recommend using silicone rubber, polyurethane rubber, or plaster. It's important to prep all three materials with a release agent prior to casting.

Happy making!
