Make Your Own Mold

I have spent a small fortune on fimo molds on Etsy over the last 6 months. Then I saw this product and decided to try to make my own. You can bake the fimo in this stuff too! No need to remove it from the mold first!
There are two putties inside. You need to take equal amounts of both. I rolled each into a rope and that made it easy to compare the two.
You only have one minute so you have to move fast. Mix the two together until the color in consistent.
Roll into smooth ball and carefully insert prototype into the putty. I used a flower I had gotten from Pick Your Plum.
Let putty sit with flower embedded for about 20 minutes. The mold will firm up and then you can remove the flower. The putty is flexible so it is easy!
Now you can fill it with chocolate, fimo or anything you want! If you are using fimo, you can bake it at 260 for about 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool. Now you can remove the flower! Be sure and wash the mold after each use. Now I am hunting around the house for anything I can turn into a mold. Think of the possibilities! Diana
