The beautiful Lotus Flower symbol has played an important part in both ancient Egyptian religion and in sacred Buddhist teachings. For instance, it played a crucial role in the old story of creation that originated in Heliopolis. It was said that before the universe was created, there was endless stagnant water, which created the being called Nun. A lotus flower emerged from Nun, along with a mound of dry land. When the lotus flower opened, the sun god Atum (or Ra) emerged. It was in the folds of the lotus flower that he returned to every night. The interesting characteristics of the Lotus flower have made it into an apt symbol for rebirth, creation, or detachment (in the Buddhist sense). In Buddhism, the Lotus flower has become the symbol of the whole essence of the religion. Because this flower is the only one of its kind that rises about 12 inches above the water, it is said to represent the pure spirit of man, which aims to rise above the muddiness of the world. It is also believed that the teachings of Buddha allow virtues to develop within man, causing him to open up, as the petals of a Lotus flower does.

For our plastic molds, we use HDPE 300 and for our silicone molds, we use platinum cured, food-safe silicone.

When casting you should use the pre-glazing technique, in order to prevent any stones or metal shavings being in direct contact with the side of the mold, in order to do that when you pour the resin into the mold you do it by spreading a thin layer of resin on the inside part of the mold, just cover the sides with resin, it will form that thin layer that will prevent any shavings or stones showing up on the final castings. You should do that every time you are pouring resin into the mold. When you are closing the mold the first thing you need to do is to place tape along the open side of the mold, then to tighten the mold you can place one or a few more strings of tape across the edge horizontally until you close the gap complacently.

All silicone molds are FDA food safe approved, HDPE molds also can be used for casting food but they can not be heated when containing food

These molds can be used for resin, Candle making, Jewelry making, Molding & Casting, Sculpture, Soapmaking & bath.

Yes, but the lifespan of the molds won’t be so long. We use platinum cured silicone, not cheap tin cured one, the number of castings greatly depends on the chemistry of the resin used, the slower the curing the better as the heat released from the resin is less. There can be issues from the temperature that the resin build wile curing, we do recommend using layers when casting in the molds as you limit the heat this way.
