Find or How to Replace Old Dried Out Gaskets in a Set of 4 Ceramic Kitchen Canisters Answered
We have a set of 4 ceramic kitchen canisters that are so old the foam seals, or gaskets, have dried out. I cannot find replacement gaskets anywhere. They were made by an individual, so there is no company to write to for replacement parts.
Does anyone know who sells such gaskets? Foam or rubber or silicon will work.
Or, is there a way of making replacements? I've seen amazing things done on "instructables" with silicon; molds, fake heads, toy octopus, etc. But I have never worked with it. Is it OK for a seal that will be in close proximity with salt, sugar, flour?
The canisters are glazed ceramics that some individual has made.
Attached are photos of the canister, mating surfaces, and existing gasket.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
