Celebrating America, this oversized map of the USA features the lower 48 states plus the great lakes. The mold includes raised state lines (roughly 1/16" high) which will appear as recessed (lowered) on whatever casting you pull from it. Note that although it appears inverted, the casting from the mold will be a mirror image, creating the map in the correct orientation (as the bottom of the mold, will be the top of your piece).
The finished casting out of this mold is roughly 16" wide, 10.25" tall and 1" thick. However, it can be made thinner by using less resin or concrete, up to a minimum of 3/8" thick.
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.
