Silicone Crafting Magic

Did you know that our silicone moulds can be used for more than just wax melts?

Have you noticed the growing trend of creating wax melts, delicious treats, or even beautiful soaps? Whether you're diving into these crafts for personal enjoyment or as a budding business venture, there's one essential tool you'll need: a good mould. And when it comes to moulds, silicone is the clear winner.

A couple of weeks ago I baked a cake and decided to decorate it with little chocolates shaped from our silicone moulds.

**Disclaimer** – I am not a baker. I rarely bake and I definitely do not cook.

It was my first time ever using moulds, so I was kind of going in completely blind, but I actually found it relatively easy. Melt the chocolate, swirl it into the moulds in the pattern I wanted, whack them in the fridge and then pop them out the mould as picture perfect chocolates when they set. Now as a complete amateur I’m sure there are more elegant ways to do it, but the point is it still ended up working for me – someone with absolutely no experience.

Which got me thinking, what else can silicone moulds be used for? Where do they shine their best? What are their best features?

So, I did a little research. Here’s what I found:


Silicone moulds are built to last. They withstand frequent use and extreme temperatures without losing their shape, making them a smart, long-term investment. Silicone is a safe, non-toxic material, ensuring no harmful chemicals contaminate your products. Their durability and longevity make them a cost-effective choice, saving you money and reducing waste over time.

Flexibility and Ease of Use

Crafting should be fun and hassle-free. With silicone moulds, you get just that. Their flexibility means you can easily pop out your makes without any struggle. Unlike rigid alternatives, silicone bends effortlessly, allowing your beautiful creations to slide out with just a gentle push. Making them ideal for intricate resin designs. No more wrestling with your moulds or worrying about breaking them!

Non-Stick Magic

Ever had wax stubbornly stick to your moulds? Silicone moulds come to the rescue with their natural non-stick surface. Your crafts will pop out smoothly, leaving the mould clean and your creations flawless. Cleaning is a breeze—just a quick wash with warm, soapy water, or pop them in the dishwasher and you're done! Leaving you with more time crafting and less time cleaning!

Temperature Resistant

Silicone moulds can withstand extreme temperatures, making them suitable for a variety of applications. From freezing ice cubes to baking delicate pastries, these moulds adapt effortlessly to different environments. Our moulds are crafted from platinum cure silicone, making them food safe and heat resistant up to 230°C (440°F).

Endless Design Possibilities

One of the joys of crafting is experimenting with different shapes and designs. Silicone moulds offer a vast array of options, from classic shapes to fun and quirky designs. Whether you're crafting for yourself, as gifts, or to sell, silicone moulds let you express your creativity and stand out from the crowd.
