Aqua Blue Seashell Pendants by MandarinMoon Aqua Blue Seashell Pendants by MandarinMoon
I cast my own molds of a few interesting seashells and then began making polymer clay seashell pendants with them. I love this! I have to bake the clay in the mold because some of the detail is lost or distorted if I pull the clay out of the mold before it is cured.

Complex shapes for molds. Silicone?

Yes it is :) I think it is called Amazing Mold Putty. You mix the white with the yellow and it sets up within a matter of minutes. I tried pulling the raw clay out of the mold so that I could add a bail but it was distorting the shape. Now I bake it right in the mold and pop it out when cured. I've been making molds of all kinds of things like pinecones and acorns, lotus pods and cholla wood. I even thought about taking it outside and making texture sheets using a crack in the sidewalk or tree bark. Oh the possibilities LOL. Most likely I'll wind up wasting a lot of the molding compound but I'll have fun doing it. :D
