how-to make a pattern mold with cold molding silicone

Belicone Silicone, Belicold 2 Part Cold Molding Silicone Putty…If for whatever reason you are having difficulties reproducing intricate details in your pattern mold or the cold-mold process is new to you …this may help. My recommendation is based solely on performance, I don’t have any ties to the manufacturer.

I decided to try this material based on it’s usage in the dental industry and you’ll see in the video that it doesn’t require any specialized equipment to make a mold. As a matter of fact my process is very crude, but so far the results have been excellent. Key points to making this stuff work:…keep it clean…apply plenty of pressure (make sure you have enough material in your mold frame to do so)…weigh each part of the 50-50 mix on a scale…work fast because you only have a couple of minutes before it starts to set. Because the material is flexible, make sure you follow instructions concerning the mold-size to part-size ratio.
