Note: Be careful not to heat too much as the container could melt.
Slowly stir the molding compound to make sure it is melted all the way through and evenly heated.
Repeat until the compound has a viscous consistency.
If the item has a flat side, place it into a small holding container flat side down and pour the molding compound into the container until there is at least 1/2 inch of excess compound covering the item.
If the item does not have a flat side, prop it up in the holding container using polymer clay or suspend it from a string so it dangles inside of the holding container then fill the container with molding compound until there is at least 1/2 inch of excess compound covering the item.
Note: Do not use water to cool as it will dissolve the molding compound.
To remove the flat-sided object from its mold, gently bend the mold around its edges until it is released.
To remove the suspended object from its mold, cut the mold in half from top to bottom then carefully peel away from the cast.
Tip: PowerMold molding compound can be reheated and strained to remove any unwanted particles and used again later.
