I am doing another tutorial for my Iron Orchid Design fans. My last post on here is my most viewed and it is 3 years old do here is a new update.
More Acrylic Caulk in IOD Moulds
I use DAP Alex plus acrylic caulking and apply in the IOD moulds. Be sure it is this product.
You can use any of the IOD moulds but this is the one I use the most: trim moulding. They are wider therefore it takes longer for the acrylic to dry but there is no need to rush. Once dry the moulds last for years until you need them.
I may have had a blunder when filling the moulds. It seems I did not cut the tip short enough and puncture the seal with a nail (who knew LOL) and once the gun was pushed it came out the back but no worry I saved it all with a plastic knife and filled the moulds.
Fill the moulds and then let dry until clear which takes from a day to 3 depending on your temperatures.
You can smooth the tops with a wet finger and clean up the edges with wet cloth too or trim one dry.
These are varying stages of completion. The center ones are ones from over 2 years ago, still good to go.
Once dry just lift a corner and pull out, they are very flexible and pliable.
They are now ready to be glued on to your projects.
And here is the project I used them on.
You can also see projects I did in the past using the acrylic moulds on; Old World Bread Box and these Old World Candlestick & Vase

Ok I am inspired too! I am inspired not only by that awesome jewelry box, but I am also inspired by the mold! I have always thought the molds everyone uses are way too expensive! I really loved that jewelry box and how easy you made it seem. So, I clicked on the link, ready to be disappointed when the mold would be out of my comfortable cost range. I was surprised at the cost! (Oh, and I am ordering one 👍)
