AKA Chocolate breasts!
Searching for that perfect, unique, one-of-a-kind gift?
Give yourself -- in chocolate!
Using body-safe silicone and chocolate, you can reproduce whatever strikes your fancy for your loved one to nibble on anytime. It's a work of art that's meant to be enjoyed!

The mold you make with this method can be used to cast any variety of materials.

This would also be a great way to commemorate an expecting mother's pregnant belly!

*** WARNING: This Instructable may contain material considered offensive or objectionable to some readers. Viewer discretion is advised. ***

Step 1: Materials

For this project I used:

  • Two trustworthy assistants - one to smear and one to photograph. You may decide you only want the one.
  • 2 qt. Dermasil - SR1100 Silicone RTV material that can be brushed directly onto the skin

This silicone is only rated as body-safe. It has not been FDA tested to be food grade.
I promise to report if I poison anyone with the chocolate from this mold.

  • Petroleum jelly
  • Plaster bandages
  • Chip brushes
  • Disposable mixing cups in two different sizes
  • Stirrers
  • Chocolate - best to use baking chocolate, rather than chocolate chips. After some testing, I discovered the taste and texture of remelt baker's chocolate to be FAR superior to that of chips.
  • Double boiler or two pans
  • Scissors
<p>Thanks a lot for this beautiful tutorial, thanks for sharing!</p>
You really didn't have to post that picture. It could have been, like, you jellying up your shoulder and facing away.
<p>Why not? What's wrong with the human body?</p>

<p>Great Instructable! Since the 1990's I've been in to the fine arts, and just recently started studying Plastic Technology over in my local community college. I was surprised to learn that the community college is the ONLY one as such in the Southern CA area! We learned to make all sorts of great reusable plastic molds, FDA approved molds, etc. You've given me an idea to make some chocolate goodies using fine art sculpting first and then creating a reusable rubber mold of my models to create Fine Chocolate Art! Thank you!</p>
<p>I look at this as no different than nude art,,, some of you people just look at the obvious,,, someone that worked art, and shows it in a museum is no different than what was posted here... I THANK YOU MISSCHIFF, for posting something respectfully, and giving me numerous ideas for my business.... trust me,,, this will sell awesomely during christmas and birthdays for hubbies..... my mother used to make cakes, and made this same thing out of cake, and cupcakes,, then, she even made the bottom for a man,, using a twinkie as you know what,,, its comical, its romantic, its something people will buy,,, so, keep up the good work,,, and thank you again... </p>
There are FDA approved food safe ways to accomplish the same thing. Only a little more work and pennies. I have been doing the same stuff for some time. Let me know if I can help.
&nbsp;i want to make a cast of my head, how would i do this, i would do the breast however i am male, and not mutch mussel to be prod of &quot;yet&quot; so that is out of the question.
stick two straws up you're nose and then you can still breath, fill in the nostril holes with something like Plasticine
if you can hold your breath till the gelatin sets, you've got it.
Why can't I just rub chocolate all over myself?
if you look just abouve the plastic jar...
*in awe* (Gasp!) That's a lot of chocolate.
you guys are pervs, you know that?
&nbsp;haha then what are you doing here?
so ....if the female body makes u think that any attraction towards it&nbsp; makes u a perve ....then u my sir&nbsp; have issues<br />
who's the lucky guy?<br />
OMNOMNOM&nbsp;XD<br />
awsome<br />
Yum and sexy gift idea. Though I have to ask... did the chocolate taste weird from the silicon? This technique has given me an idea for doing my dress form but I'm wondering, how much did that much silicon cost?
Extremely delicious. Perhaps I'll have to attempt something like this, but maybe I'll use some other candy-ish materials.. Decorating could be freakin fun too.
wooow, thats alot of chocolate!! like, alot alot
again<br/>Warning Mature content!<br/><br/>and again, not that I mind tho =)<br/>
oh my dais! Ill just put this in for former visitors<br/>!!WARNING!! Mature content<br/><br/>Not that I mind tho =)<br/>
To make it shine you must also add air to the chocolate by lifting the spoon and letting the chocolate run off.
Ah, I didn't know that.
the vaseline is harder to remove than you would think. that would cause some blooming. also, a good demolding agent is helpful in preventing blooming. i would recommend coating the inside of the mold with paraffin - melt it and spray it on with a mouth atomizer, perhaps?
actually, you could just pour hot paraffin into the mold and swirl it around, then pour the excess back into your wax pot.it will also give the final piece a nice, glossy sheen, without affecting edibility.
Great suggestions! Thanks!
yea, but it also affects the flavor, look at hersheys compaired to lindt, one has more parafin, and therefore a different flavor
looks like a mummy
I wish i were u
thats hot
hot. and chocolatey
You should make a video for this.
Good point.<br/>Check out the video titled <strong>Lifecasting A Female Torso Using Body Double Silicone Rubber</strong>. <br/>I asked my assistants to watch it and they all agreed it was Very helpful.<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.smooth-on.com/Life-Casting-Body-/c3_1184/index.html">http://www.smooth-on.com/Life-Casting-Body-/c3_1184/index.html</a><br/><br/>
Oh yeah, and five stars.
Any idea where to obtain Dermasil - SR1100 Silicone RTV? This looks like a great project, and I would love to try it!
I got mine from <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.artstuf.com/">Douglass &amp; Sturgess</a>. Very helpful, and I'm sure they'll ship it to you!<br/><br/><sub> sorry for the delay in my reply!</sub><br/>
I use taps plastic rtv I do custom molds bodycasting it's the best I have used yet rtv silicone is better try to stay away from latex unless you got aloe of time on your hands tap's plastic rtv mold is fda approved and holds up to 500 degree's but don't melt gold and use it gold melts at 700 degree and set's at 500 kind of pushing it there don't use the cheap plastic casting kit's waist your money and miss up your molds been there done that
Ouch!<br/><sub>What does that mean?</sub><br/>
I used alginate (the stuff dentists use for dental impressions, you can buy it on eBay) to make a chocolate hand mold for a friend's birthday, and I had the same problems with the finish of the chocolate. Mine also broke, but I can chalk that up to my structurally unsound fingers.
A good way to "refinish" the chocolate is to run a hot hairdryer over it until a small amount melts. Leave it to freeze again, and you've got a smooth finish on your cast!
hahaha, lol, great one :P
ahh now im hungry :]
Nice Instructable! And now for some tips for the next run... You might also want to try a different type of chocolate. Baking chocolate is ok, but it usually does not have enough coco butter in it to make for nice pouring. You should look into couverture chocolate. It has at least 30% coco butter and pours very smooth. It also looks like your mold was not completely dry. That is why the chocolate changes colors - you have some blooming going on.
