This 11.5x10x3.1" hexagon block mold is perfect for casting items such as flowers, rocks, and other memorabilia into resin up to 3.1" thick. We design our deep pour casting molds with extra thick silicone walls for dimensional stability, and at just over 3" in depth you can cast true 3" thick pieces in these molds.
Hexagon deep pour molds are also ideal for wood turning applications as it's much easier to trim and cut wood to fit within a hexagon shape with flat walls, than it would be to fit a perfect circle. Simply spray the mold release, fit your wood, then backfill with resin to make your blank. The hexagon shape still provides a generally rounded wood turning blank to start off with, while saving resin when compared to a similar sized square mold.
Note that due to the stiffness of the silicone, demolding a piece of this height can be challenging. There are two ways to remove castings from this mold as peeling back the mold significantly will likely result in tearing.
1. Pouring distilled water between the cured resin piece and the interior wall of the mold and moving the water around the resin casting before trying to attempt to remove it from the mold.
2. Using a compressed air hose with a soft (plastic or rubber) gun nozzle end. Insert your air gun in between the casting and the mold wall and scale up the air flow rate until the casting rises from the mold.
The last mold you will ever need. Created just for makers, resin artists and wood workers, these time saving flexible yet durable silicone molds significantly cut down on the setup and demolding time usually involved with other molds. Silicone molds are superior to wood and tuck tape, and HDPE molds because:
