ImPRESSive Putty (Our Re-Mold Putty) requires no mixing or weighing. It is Eco-Friendly, Re-Usable, and Microwaveable too! You can use it by pressing materials into it or by pressing the ReMold Putty onto your object.
Place the molding Putty in the included microwavable bag.
Add 2 drop of the Activator to the bag for every oz. of putty i.e. 12 drops for 6oz of Putty (no mixing required).
Seal the bag with an oven safe plastic tie.
Heat the Putty in the microwave until completely it is soft or becomes dough or clay like with no clumps (see estimated microwave times below). Caution!! IT IS VERY HOT.
Size Microwave times (estimates-times will vary)
3oz. 10 second intervals until melted
6oz. 20 second intervals until melted
16oz. 35 second intervals until melted
You can also melt in a double boiler.
Let the Putty sit at room temp until cool to the touch. Stick in fridge to cool faster (See tips)
Knead the putty for several minutes to allow the activator to mix evenly. Use a rolling pin and your fingers to smooth the putty. Remove all the lines in the Putty. If you are planning on moving your mold before it solidifies place it on a plate. When necessary, apply cooking oil to your hands (if sticky). Next, push the Re-Usable molding putty over your master part or push the master part into the putty. Let the Re-Usable molding putty solidify. The master object is ready to be removed from the mold when the putty does not deform when pressed with your finger. At room temp leave the mold overnight or you can move your mold to the freezer to solidify faster. Wait 1 hour before DE-molding the object. Remove the master part from the Re-Usable molding putty, apply a Mold Release if / when necessary to the mold, and pour or press in your casting material.
Re-UseWith the ImPRESSive putty, many casts can be made with the same mold including wax, and plastic casts. When you finish making duplicate parts, reuse the Re-Usable molding putty to make more molds and cast parts. The unique aspect of ReMold Putty is that it can be continuously remelted and reused to make new, unique molds.
Mold Making Tips
Important noteThe activator is important for solidifying the mold and useful as a built in mold release, but it will slowly leak out of the mold over time. Too much activator on the mold surface is undesirable, remove the excess and pools of the activator with a sponge or dry cloth before pouring your casting resin.
