This Large Rounded Rectangle Tray Mould comes with a wooden support base frame and bracket to keep your make steady and stable. This means you can make your tray and not worry about sagging or warping causing any unwanted shapes, or use of extra resin due to bulging. It makes a beautiful functional and versatile rounded corner tray with sides.

  • For details on how to build the frame please see instructions.
  • This tray takes approx. 300mls of resin.
  • Mould dimensions 29cm long x 20cm wide x 3cm deep approx
  • Note: We do not recommend using JESMONITE with this tray

    If you're using these moulds to make placemats, we recommend that you fill your edges and then add a 3mm thick clear layer of HEAT-RESIST™ 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-RESIST™ resin needs 21 days to achieve full cure, so don't place a hot cup on it too early.

    If using to make a JESMONITE® coaster, remember to seal the coaster before use with PROTECT-IT™ sealant to make it less porous.

    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.

    To build frame: Slot together the 4 2.5cm deep pieces to create a large rectangle then slot together the remaining 4 x 2cm deep pieces to make a smaller rectangle. Place your mould on the table upside down and pop in the support wood measuring approx 27x17cm into the mould void. Next, lace your smaller bracket inside too. Lift the mould and bracket and flip it the right way up (pouring side facing the ceiling) and place the whole thing into the large bracket - it may take a little wiggle to get right. The whole mould will now be level and supported from all sides and underneath and you are ready to pour!
