My “Mold” Experiment

A few months ago, my friend Jess made these cute little cabochons.  Now, I loved the ones that are made by the major manufacturers, but let’s face it.  They can be a bit pricey so I decided to go the way that Jess did and make my own.

I ordered some molds from MoldMuse.  She has AMAZING molds at some awesome prices.   I picked up the mini owl, the Lolita cameo (swoon), the roses, and the mums.

My molds!

I used Scupley polymer clay and here’s what I came up with.

My lovely li’l cabochons!

And here’s the queen of the ball, my favorite of them all.  Allow me to introduce you to Lolita.

Lo Lo Lolita!

Isn’t she beautiful?!  I want to try and make a 2-tone version of her and maybe experiment with resin and dyes.

Here’s some close ups of the other li’l cabos I made.

Rose and Mum

I am thinking about doing up another post in the future.  I full blown tutorial on how to use these awesome molds.  What do you all think?  šŸ˜‰

Cheers!
