The word ‘swastika’ is a Sanskrit word (‘swastika’) meaning ‘It is’, ‘Well Being’, ‘Good Existence, and ‘Good Luck’. However, it is also known by different names in different countries – like ‘Wan’ in China, ‘Manji’ in Japan, ‘Fylfot’ in England, ‘Hakenkreuz’ in Germany, and ‘Tetraskelion’ or ‘Tetra gammadion’ in Greece. In Buddhism, the swastika is a symbol of good fortune, prosperity, abundance, and eternity. It is directly related to Buddha and can be found carved on statues on the soles of his feet and on his heart.  It is said that it contains Buddha’s mind. On the walls of the Christian catacombs in Rome, the symbol of the Swastika appears next to the words “ZOTIKO ZOTIKO” which means “Life of Life”. It can also be found on the window openings of the mysterious Lalibela Rock churches of Ethiopia, and in various other churches around the world. In Nordic Myths, Odin is represented passing through space as a whirling disk or swastika looking down through all worlds. In North America, the swastika was used by the Navajos. In Ancient Greece, Pythagoras used the Swastika under the name ‘Tetraktys’ and it was a symbol linking heaven and earth, with the right arm pointing to heaven and its left arm pointing to Earth. It has been used by the Phoenicians as a symbol of the Sun and it was a sacred symbol used by the priestesses.

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.
