A silicone mold to make bottle openers is not revolutionary, but one of this build, durability and quality is. Using over 15X the amount of silicone versus common $15 imported bottle opener molds from Amazon (that warp and rip with minor use), our heavy duty, production grade, super durable bottle opener molds will keep up with the demands of any resin artist. Plus unlike most common low cost flimsy imports, our bottle opener set #2 mold is 3/4" deep, allowing you to make thicker, stronger bottle openers.
The six pockets feature six different shapes, each featuring a 40.5mm diameter recessed opening and a corresponding lower pocket to accommodate the standard metal bottle opener metal insert hardware you can get on Amazon. Once you demold your resin casting from the mold, use a thin drill bit to pre drill the holes for the bottle opener insert, put the insert in place, and use two small screws (usually provided when you buy the insert hardware) to attach it to your resin piece.
Bottle openers are a fun project that are easy to sell at markets or gift to friends and family. Since they use only small amounts of resin and use off the shelf hardware, they are relatively low cost to make.
This mold does not include any bottle opener inserts, hardware or screws. See these on Amazon and select inserts that are between 39-40mm in diameter.

Our RSCC line of silicone molds are crafted with artists, makers and bakers in mind. While RSCC stands for resin, soap, candy and chocolate they can also be used with plaster, acrylic resin/Jesonite, concrete and other popular pourable materials.
These are not your run of the mill $10 mass produced and imported molds you'll find on many shopping sites. The custom tooling (blanks) and silicone molds are all made one-by-one, by hand at our facility in Ontario, Canada. We use the highest grade platinum cure silicone, which surpasses the quality and standards of regular food grade silicone. Our silicone is cured with platinum, not peroxide making it safer for use in food and medical applications. We make our molds incredibly thick, to ensure they are self supporting and won't bend or deform when full of your material. Every artist, maker or baker who gets one of our molds immediately acknowledges the quality difference and can justify the cost difference.
Please remember that if you are using silicone molds with epoxy resin or other corrosive or abrasive chemical that you need to use a mold release before pouring your resin. We recommend a non-silicone based release such as the MG Chemicals 8329 or Mann Ease Release 200/300. Using a proper release will extend the life of your mold and help to prevent mold tear-out.
