Silicone rubber is a versatile art material that is commonly used for making different types of molds and casts. However, it usually takes hours to set and you have to allow quite a few days for it to cure properly.
Now what if you need to make a mold or cast very quickly? Or what if you just don’t want to put in the long-winded efforts for making a traditional silicone mold? Do you have to skip silicone rubber and opt for another material that allows for quicker mold making?
Not really as EnvironMolds offers a handy 5-Minute Mold Putty that drastically cuts down the mold making time and allows you to make quick impressions. And the product truly lives up to its claim as you can make silicone molds very quickly and easily, that too without using a box. And yet, it manages to capture the impressions quite well (though not as detailed as a regular mold).
What’s more, you do not have to limit the usage to inedible models only as the silicone rubber complies with FDA standards and can be safely used for making food molds too.
Not only is the silicone mold ready within minutes, but it can also be used immediately for casting, thus making it perfectly suitable for one-off uses. What more can a mold maker ask for?

Different types of materials can be used to make molds of regular objects, toys, statues, artifacts and more. Mold makers use ordinary materials such as clay, wax, plaster, moulage, silicone rubber and liquid latex rubber to capture impressions of a model before making a replica cast.
However, what if you want to make a mold of a chocolate, candy, cheese, cake and so on? Or what if you want to make a mold – ice tray, baking dish or other kitchen products – that will come in direct contact with the food?
Regular plaster or even silicone rubber will just not do here. What you need is a food-safe mold making material and the answer comes in the form of BakeSil!
BakeSil is a food grade, FDA approved silicone mold making rubber that can be safely used for food molds and baking containers. It is specifically suitable for repeated food contact and can be used for making customized candy and chocolates, baking fondants, cakes and breads, creating ice sculptures, butter sculptures and much more. It even serves well for making baking molds and trays, ice trays, etc.
BakeSil is heat and cold resistant – it will not damage if baked in the oven or frozen in a refrigerator. The molds turn out strong, tear resistant and bacteria resistant as well.
However, this silicone two-part RTV material has a precise mix ratio of 100 parts of base to 10 parts of activator by weight. Strictly abiding by the mix ratio and mixing properly will yield best results.
