Making silicone molds...
Does anyone have experience with making silicone molds? I have made one from a leaf and it turned out perfect. Then I made a plaster of paris mold from it. Do you think if I put silicone on the plaster of paris mold that it would totally stick to the plaster? What if I sprayed the plaster with a release agent first? I'm wondering if I can use the plaster mold to make many more silicone molds of the same leaf.
I have also tried making silicone molds from an earring and ruined the earring as the silicone stuck to it and it wasn't going to give up the battle. Also ruined a vase this way! I'm learning... thank goodness it was with things I wasn't that crazy about. Would it have worked if I had use a silicone spray on the object first?
Also, has anyone ever made a mold from a fresh flower. I'm wondering if I could make a silicone mold from a morning glory bloom. Any advice would be really appreciated!
