This unique Geometric Raised Edge Coaster Mould is one of a kind, with a raised lip and flat base you can make a truly unusual resin creation. Use our coat-it 1 to 1 resin with alcohol inks and make a wonderful petri dish. Or use fill-it epoxy resin and embed pretty florals for a beautiful botanical design with a crystal clear finish.
Easy to demould, this flexible mould gives you plenty of space to make glorious effects with resin, alcohol ink, flowers and more.
- Measurements: 140mm x 130mm, approx 10mm deep
- Each dish takes approximately 80ml to fill.
Petri Art combines resin with alcohol inks to create three dimensional splashes of colour with unpredictable results. Called petri art because it resembles the tiny particles found growing in petri dish experiments, this popular technique is simple to get started with as long as you get the basics right.
If you're using these moulds to make coasters, we recommend that you add a 3mm thick clear layer of Heat-Resistant resin first in your mould. Let it set and then add more resin with colour, ink, glitter, flowers etc. Once turned out, what was the bottom will be the top and heat-resistant up to 90oC! Remember that our Heat-Resistant resin needs between 14-21 days to achieve full cure, so don't place a hot cup on it too early.
Our silicone moulds can be re-used time and again providing they are looked after well. Keep it in the bag it comes to you in, don't use a flame near the mould (use a craft heat gun instead) and be careful when de-moulding - try not to scratch the mould with long nails or bend it out of shape too much.
If using to make a Jesmonite coaster, remember to seal the coaster before use with our Protect-It sealant to make it less porous.
If your casting comes out dull it could be that the mould has come to the end of its life (or that the mould doesn't have a shiny interior surface). You can keep using moulds that are past their best - it just takes a little more effort. Add a thin layer of resin to the casting or use Rejuven8 polish and cloth to bring up the shine.
