Perfect for your summer cocktails, these Straw Toppers are just too cute! Go for simple transparent colours or fill choc-a-block with glitter, whatever you choose they’re guaranteed to make your drink even more fun! You’ll have to fix your pieces together once demoulded with either glue or a few dabs of resin.

  • Choose from 3 fun shapes: a bow, flower or a set of lips!
  • They each create an approx. 10mm x 10mm wide gap for the straw to thread through. The finished pieces will measure the following:
    • Bow – 60mm wide, 45mm tall, 10mm thick
    • Flower – 47mm wide, 47mm tall, 19mm thick
    • Lips – 50mm wide, 35mm tall, 10mm thick
  • These moulds will need approx 10-20ml of resin to fill each.
  • Remember not to put your mouth directly on the resin piece – you can read more about resin food safety here.

          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.
