DIY Silicone Gap Filler Craft Mold

DIY Silicone Gap Filler Craft Mold

This tutorial shows you how to make a craft mold for polymer clay or jewelry making using Gap Filler or silicone.

What you need

Gap Filler / Silicone (Found in hardware store)
Corn Flour
Item to create mold

Instructions

For this mold you only need 2 ingredients. Gap filler or silicone (from the hardware store) and corn flour.

These DIY molds are quick to make and can be used for casting jewelry and poly clay shapes.

We used a shell to create our mold.

Start by mixing the two ingredients together. You need the paste to be the consistency of a dough. It shouldn’t stick to your fingers and should come together. Once you are able to roll it into a ball it is the right consistency.

Shape your ball into a rectangle or square a 1/2 inch thick (depending on the depth of the item you are casting)

Then simply push your casting item (shell) into the dough.  If you are not happy with the impressions just roll it back into a ball and start again.

It will take 2-3 days, depending on the weather to dry.

What you need

Retro Chic Earrings
Butterfly Brooch
Silicone or Jewelry Glue
Pliers
2 jump rings

Instructions

This jewelry making project shows you how to convert a pair of store bought plastic retro chic earrings into a custom jewelry pendant.

To begin you need to remove the earring loop from the earring with a pair of pliers. Next attach 1 jump ring to the earring pendant and then add the next jump ring to that jump ring.

You double up the jump rings so that the pendant will sit correctly on a chain.

Take the butterfly brooch and remove the clasp from the back. You can do this by pulling the glued section off with pliers.
Alternatively you can leave this section connected and just remove the pin.

Using strong silicone or craft glue adhere the butterfly to the earring pendant as shown.

Once the glue is dried thread your chain through the jump rings for a beautiful custom jewelry piece.
