These are window clings in various colors and patterns purchased at any Dollar Store.
They are the consistency of gummy candy and stick on mirrors and windows. I use these to produce mini Gelatin Molds for my mini scenes. I refer to Gelatin so not to infringe on any copyrights. The real thing has been a food staple since 1910. These are fun to make and so many pretty colors are available. The molds are also readily available if you are fortunate enough to have a Cake Decorating store nearby. Check out the possibility of hollow back buttons from a material store. Many remind me of molds on the back.
This is a plastic chocolate candy mold bought at a Cake and Candy decorating store. Mini cats, pumpkins, owls and skeleton heads. I will use the cat and pumpkin on this one today.
|These are copper molds in 1/12" scale that I have collected over the years, My favorite one is the round bundt style cake pan I will use that one in this tutorial|
|The tiny mold is 3/4" across and the pumpkin window cling was about 2 " x 2" in size. It was enough to melt down into enough liquid to fill the mold. I used candy sprinkles in the shape of bones, laying them down inside after putting a small amount of melted window cling in first. Then filling the rest to the level of the pan.|
|After leaving set for about an hour I used a tooth pick to pry up a section and slowly peel out the gelatin from the mold.|
Any kind of cooking spray needs to be used to spray into the mold and then a paper towel patted over to absorb the excess oil out. This makes it easier to release the mold and the clings will not stick.
