Looking for a true to life size chess board mold that is deep enough to cast objects in? This massive 18x18" mold is 1.5" deep and features 1.75x1.75" squares that are 0.375" (3/8") in depth. At nearly 8lbs in weight, it uses 10-15 times the amount of silicone used in the common small and thin, Chinese made, chess board molds found on Amazon or Etsy.
With large 1.75x1.75" squares separated by 1/8" lines, both 3/8" in depth, you can create solid, thick squares with ease using alternating resin, concrete or Jesmonite colors. Once your small squares are set, you can then pour an additional layer (which will end up being the base of the chessboard) to solidify all the squares and surrounding border together. This layer is also deep enough to cast objects, or even encapsulate flowers in. The total thickness of the finished cast board with this mold can be up to 1.5".
Once you demold this piece, you can leave the separating lines unfilled, fill them with your choice of resin, or sand then flood coat your entire finished chess / checkers board.
If you are looking for a chess board mold that is just as functional, but don't need the extra depth check out our 19x19x0.5" Chess Board mold with 2" squares that we also offer.

Silicone molds are superior to wood and tuck tape, and HDPE molds because:
