Silicone candle moulds

Silicone moulds can be used in a vast array of applications, the general rule is that silicone is best for low volume replications of objects. With its low shrinkage and ability to copy detail makes it ideal for most casting applications added to the ability to handle a large range of temperatures making it a versatile moulding product.

Common casting materials used in silicone include but not exclusively: Chocolate, icing, resin, plaster of paris, wax, pewter, polymer clay, soaps and cement to name a few

Candle moulds from 3D printed objects

Silicone moulds can be created by 3d printing designs and then casting them in silicone. The flexibility of silicone makes it a ideal material to make moulds that have a high level of detail and definition that you cannot get from standard vacuum formed plastic moulds, this is added to the ability of silicone to withstand temperatures up to 180 deg centigrade. Below is a growing gallery of designs we have 3d printed for our many clients.

Silicone candle moulds made from replicating hand sculpted items such as statues, old ornaments toys and other objects. It is often possible to make a mould from such objects though they sometimes have to be painted or “sealed” to prevent the silicone from sticking to the object been cast. This object is often referred to as the “master or plug” in moulding terms.
