Easy Mold Silicone Putty Chocolate Key Molds!
Hi Resin Crafters, it’s Natalie from Doodlecraft sharing DIY key molds. Easy Mold Silicone Putty is so much fun. This is the first resin product I ever used, it’s so easy to use and perfect for a beginner. Make Key Molds using EasyMold Silicone Putty. Easy Mold is food safe, so it’s great for making chocolates and customizing for all occasions. We celebrated my daughter’s 16th birthday with chocolate keys on cupcakes in family isolation style.
- EasyMold Silicone Putty
- Keys (cleaned and sanitized)
Step 1: Mix the EasyMold
Take one portion of each tub, the white and the purple.
Then mix the together until they are thoroughly mixed. There’s just a few minutes of time for mixing so don’t over work it. Smooth it out into a pancake that is slightly larger than the key.
Step 2: Press the Key into the Putty
Then press the key into the mixed putty and press it down so all the edges are encased in the silicone putty.
Repeat the process for all the keys desired, I made 3.
Let the silicone putty set up, about 20 minutes. Then remove the keys from the molds.
Then wash the molds with hot soapy water and let them dry completely.
Step 3: Set the Chocolate
Now melt some chocolate (this is not a specialty of mine) and pour it into the new molds. Let the chocolate harden and then remove them from the molds.
Place the chocolates on the top of a cake or cupcake! What other things would you make molds of with silicone putty?

i’m thinking of trying to make some moulds so i can cast resin but i’m wondering how easy/hard it is to make sure the mould picks up all of the details of the item i’m making a mould out of? the item isn’t super detailed but i’m just wondering if the putty kind of does it’s thing and moulds around shapes pretty easy or if i need to do anything to make sure it gets in all the crevices?
The silicone putty picks up lots of the details, it’s really awesome. The chocolate did not showcase the detail that the silicone mold picked up, so it just depends on what you are casting in the mold. 🙂
