What Are Silicone Molds
Silicone molds are used to make certain substance into a desired shape. Whether you're using resin Epoxy to create custom keychains or jewelry, or you're baking with these molds, your final product will come out looking like the shape/pattern that's inside the mold.
For example, if you're wanting to bake muffins in the shape of a pumpkin, you can pour the batter into the silicone mold and bake it right in the oven. Once your muffins are ready, you'll remove the mold and viola! You've come some super cute pumpkin-shaped muffines.
Silicone molds come in thousands of different shapes including stars, hearts, letters, and even famous cartoon characters. If you can think it, there's probably a mold out there for you! Now onto the Halloween craft ideas...
Like we mentioned before, silicone molds are perfect for creating your very own custom keychains. You can use resin Epoxy for the substance, just make sure you're following a quality recipe before getting to work.
To make a Halloween keychain, you'll need a silicone mold, resin Epoxy, and a keychain. You'll also need a mini hand drill for adding the keychain onto the mold after it's cured.
