This clever Two Piece Silicone Sphere Mould makes a perfect orb (or hemisphere) with shiny surfaces. You can see what you're casting due to the mould's translucency and the mould has a built in foot meaning that it stands up by itself.

Choose from a 40mm (4cm), 50mm (5cm), 60mm (6cm), 80mm (8cm) or 100mm (10cm) diameter sphere. These moulds can be quite temperamental... we suggest you fill the bottom half and then ensure a good seal around the edge by either using a thin layer of resin or plenty of tape to seal the top and bottom together. There will be a visible seam line that will need sanding from the finished spherical resin casting, and you may find you need to sand and polish the resin near the top. We suggest using our REJUVEN8™polishing collection for this.

For reference, the 100mm sphere takes approx 240ml of resin or 400g of JESMONITE® to fill each half.

We think you might be searching for mold (if you're American) or moldes (if you're Spanish) and even silcone or mild (if you've mispselt it) so we hope you will find what you're looking for now!

          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.
