Silicone Mould Making

  • Food  grade Silicone A & B from Crystal Candy
  • 2D model
  • Round cookie cutter or similar shape
  • Wood glue
  • A sheet of glass
  • Plasticine
  • Scale
  • Paper cup
  • Wooden spatula and small paint brush


Step 1:Brush the back of your 2D model with wood glue and stick it to the piece of glass or another flat surface and allow the glue to dry completely. Plus minus 20 minutes.

Step 2:Place a cookie cutter over the 2D model and use the plasticine to surround your cutter. This will contain the liquid silicone once you pour it into the mould and prevent it from seeping through.

Step 3:Pour equal quantities of the white silicone and color silicone into a plastic cup. Stir well until the color is fully blended and uniform.

Step 4:Pour a small amount of silicone onto the top of the model and brush the entire surface making sure all the crevices are covered to avoid any air bubbles. Then pour the remaining silicone slowly making sure the entire mould is covered. Allow the silicone to self-level. Tap the board a number of times to remove surface air bubbles.

Step 5:Now you need to allow your silicone mould to set, curing time is +- an hour at room temperature. To speed up the curing time place in direct sunlight.

Step 6:Carefully remove the cookie cutter and flex the mould to release the silicone from the model. Trim the excess silicone bits from the mould with scissors. Your 2D mould is now ready to be used. You can use this mould for chocolate, isomalt and fondant.
