?step x step instructions making reusable leaf molds?

donna504(z5 MI)September 26, 2007

It's almost 11 pm. I can't search anymore. I need step by step instructions for making a pop mold then silicone leaf mold from an elephant ear. I want to use it over and over again. In the past I would make leaves directly from a leaf. Now I want to just keep making leaves all summer. I hope someone can help me before my leaves all die this week or next.

Here is an excellant one! It is done by Marly.

click on part 1 pop mold and go from the bottom right and keep clicking previous. It's just set up that way....I don't know why.

part 2 is making the silicon leaf mold from the part 1 pop mold

Part 3 is trouble shooting the first 2 parts.

Very good!
