Hiya everyone! It’s that time of week again…Qutoable How To! This time I’ll be teaching everyone how to make things from molds using Hot Glue and Foam clay.
Yup, you heard right. These two unlikely materials can be helpful with molds! Lets see how shall we?
- First grab all the materials needed. From your hot glue to the mold you will be using.
- Heat up the glue gun. (Without doing this, you’re not getting anywhere.)
- Take the mold in your hand, and start filling it with the glue. (If the mold is a bit deeper, lift it up slightly so it can fill it completely.)
- Once filled, flip the mold over onto a cooler surface. Aluminon will probably be best since it’ll combat the heat the fastest.
- Once it’s cool, carefully pop out the hot glue from the mold. Then cut off any excess that’s around it.
Voila! You now have a hot glue piece made from a mold easy-peasy.
EVA Foam Clay
With EVA Foam clay it’s a little bit different than with Hot glue…
- Gather the material first. That’s always the most important step. You’ll need the clay, an exacto knife, and the mold.
- Take your clay and insert it into the mold. Make sure all of it is well fitted into the mold.
- With the exacto knife, cut of any of the excess clay that is around the mold. You know, the stuff that smooshed out when you pressed the clay in. But be very carful when doing this, cut too closely and you’ll end up cutting out the entire piece.
- Once the clay is perfectly fitted into the mold, wait about twenty-four to forty-eight hours for it to dry. Depending on the size it may take longer.
- When the clay is dry, carefully pop the item out of the mold.
Voila! And now you have your item from a mold made from the EVA Foam Clay!
Welp, that wraps up this article. I hope it was helpful. If you have any extra questions or you tried this out for yourself and you want to talk about it, feel free to let me know in the comments!
