Today we have designer Madeline Arendt creating with EasyCast™.
Being fairly new to the product called FastCast™manufactured by Enviromental Technology Inc., and only seeing it demonstrated once, I was looking forward to my own experimentation with it. As the saying goes, “start small and build”, that is what I will share with this post.
To make casts from FastCast™ use molds that are made fromSilicone, EasyMold Silicone Putty, Silicone Rubber or Silicone Paste. Other types of molds most likely require the use of a release spray to de-mold. ***The manufacturer suggests NOT using molds that are normally used for candy, soap or candles.
I will be honest here, I used a mold that was found in the aisle for candy making and I had great results. I usually like to experiment and see just how far I can go with products and directions and this one paid off.
I did not want pieces that were as thick as the mold would form. To determine how much FastCast™ I would need to mix, I added rice to the mold, filling only as high as I wanted the pieces to go. The rice was ten dumped into a glass measuring cup.
I followed with filling the mold. NOTE: The product becomes very warm and also can begin to thicken quickly so fill your casting molds without delay. Excess drips can be removed after hardening.
Remove from the mold.
