Silicone molds are favored by casters because they are easy to use and don’t require much mold release. While you can buy them in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and designs, sometimes finding the perfect mold for a custom piece is impossible. When that happens, you have to make your own. While you can always buy a 2-part silicone mold making kit from the store.
