IOD Moulds - Iron Orchid Designs Moulds


IOD Moulds are the perfect tools to use to make unique, creative pieces. Use it to transform and create furniture, jewelry, soaps, or even baked goods into masterpieces. With these crafting molds, you can create just about anything you can think of with just a little bit of your creativity and imagination. Nevertheless, we recommend not using one set to work on both food and crafts.

IOD Décor Moulds offer multitudes of highly detailed designs, most of which were influenced by historic architecture and design. The modern use of these pieces will draw creatives in varieties of forms. No matter if you are a furniture designer, a home décor creator, or sugar arts artist, these craft moulds will definitely be a big addition that will take you to new heights. Each mould contains patent-pending micro rim edge which is a feature that’s unique to these décor moulds.

Iron Orchid Designs Moulds can be used with a wide range of mediums including air dry clay or paper clay, casting resins, etc. These are made from high quality, food safe materials making them sturdy and flexible at the same time. These crafting moulds are also able to withstand temperatures of about 218° Celsius (°C). These features also make these moulds work greatly with every medium’s characteristic, challenges, and virtues.

How to Use For Different Mediums:

Air dry clay, or paper clay: IOD paper clay is an air dry medium, and one of our favorites. Like most paper pulp based air dry clays, some shrinking, warping, and cracking is inherent. We like these qualities for a distressed, authentically vintage look. Our favorite way to apply moulded pieces is to remove them from the mould while still moist, and adhere to the surface with the appropriate glue so it conforms well. For vertical surfaces, use a piece of low tack tape to hold it in place so it doesn’t slide.

Casting resins: There are some great pourable resins available. These have completely different qualities than the paper clay. There is no shrinking or warping, and the castings are more consistent. Depending on the project, these qualities can be helpful. If you need to conform them to a curved surface, this can be done if removed from the mould before it’s completely hardened.

On releases: We find that most of the time a release is not necessary and the casting will come out without the use of a release, however, if you are having trouble with the material sticking (more common with clays than resins), a light dusting of simple cornstarch or arrowroot is a great choice.
