Our "inlay" molds are perhaps one of the coolest products to come out of the Crafted Elements lab. We wanted to find a way to merge resin art with conventional wood and resin charcuterie boards, without requiring a CNC machine or router templates. Essentially, creating molds large and deep enough to set live edge wood into, but also had some sort of unique design or integrated feature that would push the coolness factor over the edge. We designed the inlay to be deep enough to allow for 1/8" to 3/16" of material loss per side during planing.
You can also use these molds without the wood, and just create an incredible multi-layer solid resin piece.
This particular inlay mold know as the "Tiered Lagoon" will be sure to give your finished boards incredible appeal that will make them stand out, and therefore command a higher price. It is designed to be a reminder of a topographical lake or ocean map that has multiple levels to represent depth. The "dish" created in this mold could either be left as an open and integrated bowl area, or you can backfill each of the tiers with resin to create a true sense of depth. The upper part of the lagoon (largest layer) is about 9x5.25", with the lowest level being 3x1.9". Each tiered section is 1/4" deep for a total depth of 1.0".
Creating works of art with our inlay molds, wood and resin is a multi-step process but still very simple:
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:
