To test whether I just got a bad batch, I made a mold from a metal thimble using the same nitrile gloves and it also turned to goo and collapsed. I think from the residue of polymer clay on my gloves, though it could be the gloves themselves.
Then I took off the gloves, washed my hands and made a mold from a metal nut and it worked great. Just as I had hoped it would. Firm yet flexible. Kind of like a soft eraser or rubber texture mat.
It's a good product and I'll use it for other things than I had planned. Sculpey Bake and Bend might be a better solution for making molds of polymer clay.
I'd suggest the manufacturer state in the instructions and description that it doesn't work to mold from polymer clay.
My first issue with this mold putty is, my box arrived open. The outside package showed no indications of having been dropped or stepped on. It was packed in a padded envelope, which was part of the problem. However, the contents of BOTH canisters had oozed out into the box, which was completely open. Is it always delivered in that state? Who thought that was a good packing procedure?
As for the product, itself, it set up WAY faster than 3 minutes. The instructions say sets in up to 3 minutes. That's an exaggeration. In about a minute, the putty started to become harder to work--like malleable foam. I barely had time to get the amount I wanted blended, and the item pressed into it. So, I like it a lot for the nice mold it produces, but holy organization and timing! Have your things out and ready to go, immediately, to make the impression.
Also, it seems to work best with small items. If you had to mold a larger item, there's no way you'd have it blended and pressed out in time.
I noticed that it is hard to get creases out of it. I attempted to smooth them out, and no-go. The putty doesn't respond the way clay does, and there's really no time to be that picky, anyway. I don't know how people use this product to get those smooth-edged molds. I tried, and no banana.
If you're OK with speed-mold making smaller molds, this stuff creates an awesome mold. If you move a bit slower, you might explore other options.
Set up time is also super fast, but not a problem for me as my projects are tiny, so it's easy to work quickly. If you're working with a large project, I imagine it's still doable if you're careful. Maybe even more so if you put the putty in the freezer for a little bit like it says in the instructions/tips.
I also tried this with resin and like many others, I was disappointed with the results, as my pieces are not clear or even shiny, except on whatever parts that weren't touching the mold. This won't stop me from using it with resin though, since there are plenty of projects that I don't mind having that frosty look on.
Followed the instructions and moved quickly. It really helps to have your originals ready to go before you start mixing the 2 parts together. You have a short amount of time to get everything done, so the more prepared you are, the better the results. For all of you complaining that it dries too quick, use a stopwatch to track your timing of the steps. Trust me, this is not one of those, "let's just see how this goes" type of deals. The more accurate you are with your time, the better the results. Timing is everything! I let it air dry AND put it in the oven for a few minutes (per the instructions). Not sure if doing both helps, but I couldn't have hurt :P
As for the finished product, it came out great! Caught all the details in all of the nooks and crannies. As some others have stated, resin cured in this putty will give the surface a "frosted" film-like look. I did my research before I bought this and found that can be fixed by applying a thin layer of resin to the "frosted" part of your finished piece. It worked! :)
Very happy with this product!
