What the Bleep Am I Doing?! Rebel’s Guide to: Silicone Molds

Hey everyone! Welcome to this week’s What the Bleep am I Doing?! This time I’m going to be talking about this new material I’ve come across that is actually quite easy to use and very useful and fun! I’m talking about Color Pour Resin. Basically, it’s the material that can be used to make silicone molds for resin projects, hot glue projects, or really anything that requires a mold. It’s pretty cool! So here, I’ll explain what exactly it is and how you can make use of it! Even for cosplay too. So, let’s get started, shall we?

What is it?

What I’ve come to find out about this cool stuff is it’s kind of like the same formula for resin except: an entirely different composition, has literally no smell—which is a godsend when working with it, and it dries to the consistency of well, a silicone mold.

I found it while literally just window shopping and I stumbled across it. Two little squeeze bottles with a whole lot of possibilities.

How does it work?

The way you make the mold is actually quite simple. At first, I didn’t think it was going to be that simple, but the process was fairly easy. All you really need to do, just like resin, make equal parts of both A and B into different containers and then put them both into the container you want to make the mold in. But make sure you attach the object you’re trying to make a mold of to the top by a popsicle or something so you can actually make the mold and not a block of silicone—unless you want a block of silicone, I mean it can have its uses somehow.

What can you make with it?

Molds of anything if I am to be perfectly honest. I so far have made molds of Pikachu, D20 dice, and teacup earrings. So, when I say anything is possible with this, I mean it.

Can you incorporate it into a cosplay?

So far from what I’ve learned, you can make really cool molds for pieces of your props. It works really well too. You just have to make sure you have enough material because depending on the piece it could take a lot of the parts A and B solution.

All in all, I highly recommend giving this material a try it has a lot of potential for cosplay and many other things. And even though it may seem like it’s a hard material to use, it’s quite easy and actually kinda fun. Just make sure you don’t pour the silicone solution into a silicone container because then…it’s not gonna end well trust me.

Well, that’s all for now…

Rebel Fae out!
