Has anyone used silicon baking trays as a mould?
I’ve got an idea to use a high heat rating professional silicon(similar to the flexible baking trays) to make a larger mould.. has anyone used these as moulds? if so whats the pros/cons, if not whats your thoughts?
Hey Brendon !!
Sorry i have whole weeks to catch up on the forum !! (i will catch up on the last video you made and also do mine !! hehe)
So silicon trays… yeah… i’ve had it a go with a “professionnal” one and the main issue is that when you get to high temperatures, it will start to defuse it’s color, and will bend. Weirdly enough, the solidifying state of the plastic after melting made the silicon tray get into a concave form due to the plastic shrinking as it cooled down
Hope it helped,
There is also the option of creating your own moulds using silicon (Calk Gun). This means you can give it thick walls that deform less. A group in Singapore I believe have had good results. Our results were a bit Meh….
