Step 1
Step 2

Before making a mold, the model to be duplicated should be mounted to your work surface.  Apply a one-eighth inch film of Anchor -Dit™ to the bottom of the model and press on to the work surface.  Apply enough pressure so that Anchor-Dit™ squeezes out the sides.  Wipe the excess away with a towel or scraper.  This creates an aggressive suction between model and work surface, sealing the bottom so silicone does not creep underneath your model.

Silicone Plastique® has the consistency of clay. Equal amounts of Part A (White) and Part B (Blue) may be measured by weight or volume. Part A and B are combined and kneaded until a uniform color is achieved. Your Silicone Plastique®  in is now ready to use an should remain work able for 15-20  minutes. Note: You may refrigerate Silicone Plastique®  before combining to extend work-time.

Step 3 Step 4

Rub a small amount of Silicone Plastique® directly into the details of your object, creating an initial layer. Apply a second layer, at least one quarter inch thick, completely covering the object surface .  Note: To bond correctly, layers of Silicone Plastique® must be applied before the previous layer is fully cured . Silicone Plastique® may be flattened by hand or rolled with a pin between sheets of parchment paper.

Silicone Plastique®  has a work-time of 15-20 minutes and a cure time of 60-75 minutes at room temperature. Allow Silicone Plastique® to fully cure before removing your original object
