Making moulds of something to make silicone products Answered

Hi all.

I have an item that I need to make silicone copies of.

I don't want silicone moulds, but the actual end product to be silicone.

What is the best way to do this? I have tried looking up but everything is "silicone moulds for xxx" and not what I want.

I do this. My mold is made of epoxy mixed with plaster of Paris (kneaded into dough), product is made of silicone. The mold needs to be rigid and openable in order to extract you silicone product. See old design of my mold: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMAzCuj0SzI

Forgot to add, I also need to add colour as well as making the end product opaque or completely not see-through.
