The 16x5.25" silicone mold is mold for woodturners looking to create large 16" diameter resin and wood bowl blanks up to 5.25" tall that they can then turn on a lathe.
This mold can be used with various types of resin, concrete, and even mixed media such as a combination of live edge wood and resin.
Important: This mold is considered a rough form. While the interior of the mold is glossy / shiny you can expect small deviations or pinholes in the surface of the mold. You can also expect a deviation in diameter up to 1/4". Unlike our "Grade B" molds where the imperfection unintentionally happened in production of the silicone mold, the rough form molds, such as this one, have imperfections strictly due to the imperfections in the tooling, also known as the master form or blank that we use to create the silicone mold. As this is a low volume mold created primarily for wood turning, a perfect surface finish was not a requirement and enabled us to keep tooling costs down, which in turn helps to keep the final silicone mold cost down. If you are using this for resin casting or floral preservation, be aware that you will likely have to sand and polish, or sand and flood coat your piece to get a perfect, consistent finish.
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:
