You seriously don't want to miss out getting your hands on at least one of our Hex Bookend / Deep Display Plaque Silicone Moulds! This wonderfully customisable mould is perfect for just so many makes (the list is almost endless!). Whether you have collected beautiful flowers from your garden, saved your wedding bouquet, from your big day or you want to encapsulate a special memorable item then this mould will allow you to do just that. Suitable for use with resin or JESMONITE®, you'll create stunning pieces you can display proudly in your home, or gift to friends and family.

We love to also make these in pairs as they are the perfect set of bookends, which we know any bookworm would love to have on their overflowing shelves. Their larger size, makes a weightier piece in both resin or JESMONITE® so it is ideal for holding up even the heftiest of novels. 

We recommend using either our FILL-IT™ resin or COAT-IT™ resin (in layers) and sandwiching in all those beautiful botanicals or explore and experiment with colour for a vibrant pop! We love using JESMONITE® with this mould to play with creating inspired shapes and patterns. 

  • Dimensions: this mould measure 225mm wide x 181mm tall x 50mm deep approx.
  • This mould requires approx 1200ml of resin.
  • This mould requires approx 2050g of JESMONITE®.

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.

You might like to consider using moulds that have past their best for another exciting craft. How about exploring the wonderful world of JESMONITE®? Resin-tired moulds make excellent moulds for working with JESMONITE®​​​​​​​. You can find more about this wonderful composite here.
