Anibild moulds can be used with plasticine/coloured modelling clay, silicone and foam latex. A release agent (or similar) must be used in all cases. Release agents commonly used are Vaseline or a wax release spray.
Guidance for use:
Always use a wax based release agent or similar. Painting in a thin layer of malleable wax/Vaseline does the same job.
Only compress both halves of mould together with quick release a soft jaw hand clamps. Do not use cast steel, heavy duty G Clamp or similar for risk of damaging the mould.
PLASTICINE / CLAY CASTING
If using plasticine/clay: Use warm malleable plastcicne/clay and set under pressure with a quick release hand clamp. Leave in a fridge for an hour before releasing hand form.
If using silicone, appropriate wax release agent must be used according to your brand of silicone. Let the silicone set under pressure using a quick release hand clamp for duration of recommended cure time.
