Resin Tip - Demoulding Silicone Moulds the Easy Way!

Crystals, geodes and the geometric shapes they form are fascinating. For resin crafters and jewellery makers with an interest in these shapes, there's a great selection of silicone crystal moulds available to create your own resin crystals in whatever colour you desire.

Those pretty geometric wand-shaped healing crystals are no longer the domain of those who embrace the healing powers of crystals; they have become a mainstream staple in jewellery and home decor. It's a natural progression from the druzy stones that have been all the rage the last couple of years.

These slender moulds are available in hexagonal, square and round cylinder shapes so you can make your own faux crystals now. Their long, slender shapes make them very appealing as pendants, particularly with some resin dye swirled through them or delicate florals suspended inside.

But this elegant, column shape presents a problem. Getting a long thin casting out of these silicone moulds is extremely difficult.

So what do you do when the resin is stuck and you just can't budge it?

Well, take a look at the video below for a surefire way to EASILY remove your resin casting from the silicone mould. All you need is some liquid soap and water.

I think you'll be amazed at how quickly it all happens!
