Give your spoon a rest with our new Curvy or Straight Spoon Rest Dish Moulds.
Are you always looking for a place to set down that spoon covered in pasta sauce, or better still curry? Well, look no further with one of our highly sought after spoon rest moulds.
Available in two styles, Curvy or Straight - this mould is made of sturdy yet translucent silicone, and holds its shape perfectly. It has holes both ends for you to pour into, which is handy as it helps any air to escape during your pour. The translucency means you can see what patterns and swirls you are creating as you fill this with resin.
We recommend using our HEAT-RESIST™ Resin to make your spoon rests as this will withstand temperatures up to 90oc -meaning it’s perfect to place down warm messy spoons while you’re cooking. Top tip: demould this baby in warm soapy water... you'll thank us...!
This mould can also be used with our COAT-IT™ resin and FILL-IT™ resin if you intend to use the finished product for display purposes. We don't recommend using JESMONITE® in these moulds as the demold is pretty tricky...!
- Mould Dimensions: Curvy: 220mm long by 108mm wide and 39mm deep.
- Mould Dimensions: Straight: 260mm long by 104mm wide and 30mm deep.
How to look after your new mould: top tips from the Resin8® team
Our silicone moulds can be used multiple times - to get the very best resin results it is important to care for them perfectly. Keep your mould in the bag it comes to you in and store carefully. Moulds do not like to be stacked or kept contained in a box with other items, this will result in the mould losing its shape. Moulds that are more complex to demould from will not last as long as straightforward, plain moulds.
It is best to use a heat tool such as an embossing craft gun to rid bubbles from your creations, naked flames can damage the outer edges of your mould. Take extra care when de-moulding your creation, pay special attention to not scratch the interior of your mould with long fingernails.
Any residue left in your mould once you have finished using it can be brushed out with a soft bristled brush such as a watercolour paint brush. Do not use sticky tape to de-tack dust, fluff or glitters - doing this will remove the interior shine within your mould.
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 polish and a cloth to bring up the shine.
