Plasticine model?

hello! can i sculpt a model out of plasticine and make a silicone mold from it?


Hi Melissa,

You can use plasticine to sculpt your model for making a silicone mold as long as it's SULPHUR-FREE. Some brands I recommend are:

https://www.amazon.com/Chavant-2lbs-Based-Sulfur-F...

https://www.amazon.com/Sargent-Art-Plastilina-Mode...

https://www.amazon.com/Van-Aaken-Modeling-4-5Lb-Gr...

If you have a brand that you already own and love using that contains sulphur, you can still use it – just seal the surface of the clay model with Krylon's Crystal Clear Acrylic spray - several coatings are usually required.

Let me know if you have any more questions!

Happy making,
Paige
