This greeting card is a perfect example that shows how cards & scrapbook pages can be put together for a very special occasion.
Think about molds as tools for many variations that expand their use.   Push molds invite us to look beyond first impressions. They invite us to use our imaginations. If you are pressing clay into molds and just settling for the image that you get, you're missing all the fun! After all, molds are a tool, and tools are meant to aide you, not limit your imagination. That said, lets use our Santa face mold as an example. (shown above) At first glance, you see a Santa face, but if Santa's aren't your thing, you might pass it by without another look. Now look at the face to the right of it, do you think "Santa"? Probably not, but it was made from the same mold. Quite a transformation! That's because we think beyond the given shape of the image to what it might become. By pushing clay into just the center of the Santa mold you can achieve a face for many uses.  This same technique can be used with many of our other molds. It's easy to alter the expression on a face or distort other shapes if you know what it is you want to do. Try manipulating other castings by stretching features, bending protruding parts, reshaping edges, texturizing, or smoothing and reworking areas for many new looks. A few ideas to try are partly fill the mold, trim the edges, or completely cut the casting in half or parts. Also consider objects that can be added for endless possibilities, such as hair, stones, embedded sand, wires, nail jewels, or whatever comes to mind. Texturing can be done with old tooth brushes, textured buttons, pin heads, textured beads or sandpaper to name just a few. Clay is very practice friendly. Don't like what you made? Scrunch it up and try again. No one is keeping count of how many times you do it.   Here are a few hints that may make it easier for you.   Too much clay One of the biggest problems that people have when using molds is that they just plain use too much clay. The result is that the face becomes thick and the edges look ragged. If you try to trim it, you may get fingerprints, or smush it. Although freezing the clay can make it easier to work with. To control the look of the edges, press the clay into the mold. Then push it towards the center of the mold until you see the outside outline of the mold all around the clay. See our free mold making movie on our tool page to learn how we do ours with a perfectly flat back every time.   How much clay? When using a mold for the first time, how much clay should you use? Do a trial run. What's it going to hurt? Push clay into the mold, then pull it out. Image too big? Do it again with less clay. Image to small? Do it again with more clay. Remember, it's okay to practice.   Use a release agent Although flexible molds do not need a release agent, the results can be unflattering. The pressing to release the casting leaves the piece distorted, bent, and dimpled. Not a desired look for quality work. We recommend a light dusting of corn starch applied to the mold with a soft brush to the inside of the mold. Too much powder and you will lose detail.   The lesson learned is: Look beyond, or within, the images in molds to see all the possibilities. Then explore. Experiment. Dare. Discover. Combine. Embellish. Chop. Scrunch. Pinch. Challenge yourself to create something new. Create.
Imagine all the possibilities that you can create with just one mold.

We recently made a discovery! A new use for molds! What did you say? Yes, our molds have so many uses, we are still coming up with new ideas for using them! This one is amazing! With the huge interest in essential oils and therapeutic uses, we were so excited when we realized that our molds are perfect to use as an essential oil diffuser! No kidding! It's true, just add a few drops to a mold and you have so many new options. Let me tell you about some of the options we came up with... 1. A clay pendant diffuser - This is a great idea for getting all of the therapeutic benefits of aromatherapy by wearing it where ever you go. The warmth of your skin enhances the aroma of your choice. 2. A non-chemical car freshener - This is great for reducing toxins and getting all of the therapeutic benefits of aromatherapy while in the car. Just scatter a few around, especially where the sun or air-vent might catch the scent. 3. What's better then nice smelling clothes? Add a few of our pretty molds infused with oil into your drawers to work as sachets. The scent will improve your mood every morning. 4. Make clay diffuser ornaments with a holiday essential oil blend of pine, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Mmmmmmm... Directions: Apply oil directly to our molds, or make your own clay shapes from our molds. Either way you can benefit from essential oils in a very creative way. Before baking be sure to add a hole or screw eye if you want it to hang. Drop a drop of essential oil onto the pendant, leave it flat for a minute or so to let the oil soak in and then enjoy the benefits of your oil all day.
