I was playing with solder, and since the molds are good for up to 400 degrees, I thought they might make some interesting solder charms.
It was mostly a mess.
I made a lot of solder trinkets, but I couldn't figure out a use for them...
Also there were a lot of spiky edges.
These silicone molds are meant to be used with resin, hot glue, or baking with Fimo clay.
This weekend, I found some black glue sticks at Daiso:
It was somewhat easier to fill the molds with hot glue.
The glue fills in the small spaces better than the solder.
Also it's less stinky.
I made a new pile of trinkets:
While I was looking for my glue gun, I found white glue sticks.
I forgot I bought them when I bought the molds.
Of course there was still black glue in the gun.
The combination was a different look that I might explore later.
Glue guns cost only a few bucks.
I guess if I don't want the colors to mix, I should buy one for separate colors...
I made a whole lot of plastic trinkets.
The shapes that I liked the best, in either color and also in solder, were the flowers and the butterflies.
I wasn't happy enough with them to make any jewelry yet.
