This clever Two Piece Silicone Orb Mould makes a perfect sphere (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), 60mm (6cm), 80mm (8cm) diameter sphere or a 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.

The 100mm mould holds approx 550ml of resin mix, while the 80mm sphere holds around 300ml of mixed resin and hardener. 

Our silicone moulds can be re-used time and again providing they are looked after well. Keep it in the bag it comes to you in, don't use a flame near the mould (use a heat gun instead) and be careful when de-moulding - try not to scratch the mould with long nails or bend it out of shape too much. De-moulding while the mould is submerged in warm soapy water can save a lot of time!

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.
