BULLET rubber mold
Flexible mold to create infinite bullets and bullet shells with epoxies putties, polymer clays and resins. Green Stuff putty, Brown Stuff putty and Procreate putty will NOT work properly with this mold due to its gummy texture. Overcooking of polymer clay may burn it and also leave it stuck to the mold. Also this is NOT valid for polyurethane resins.
Overall Dimension of the mold: 6x12cm (2,5x5 inches)
Mold thickness: 5mm
Resistant to temperatures up to 240ºC
Contains 1 mold with bullets and bullet shells in 5 different sizes (2, 2'5, 3, 4 and 5mm length)
HOW TO USE IT:
Due to the depth of the mold, and the complexity of the pieces, in order to get the most bullets as possible each time, we recommend filling each hole of the mold 1 by 1. The process would be as follows:
1.- Knead the Putty/Clay into a ball
2.- Press the ball against the mold with any blunt object, for example the edge of a Rolling pin, trying to fill the holes of the desired bullets.
3.- Push the Putty/Clay into the bullets holes of the mold 1 by 1 by using any tool with of round tip or a toothpick. Best for this would be a Stylus tool (LINK).
4.- Remove excess of Putty/Clay with a SCRAPPER (LINK) to clean the mold without cutting it.
5.- Repeat step 2 and 3 at least 3 times. The better the mold is filled, and the more times we repeat the entire process, the better quality and the more perfect bullets we would get. If the process is not done properly, some bullets will just come out incomplete.
As something additional, once the mold is filled and while we still have the Putty/Clay in fresh conditions, in order to get more detail in the pieces, bullets may be punctured with the tip of a mechanical pencil or even a small tube, to mark the firing pins in the back of the bullets.
