For the past month I have been canvasing for a good casting service
which could make 15 -20 molds for me from my metal originals. Thes
are small, flat simple pieces 1" x 2" max. I’m recieving quotes
upwards of $30 - $40 per mold, which I think is outrageous, especially
since this would be a continuing service, not a one time deal.
At this point I am considering just buying a vulcanizer and making
them myself . If you do the math $35 x 20 is equal to a good piece of
equiptment. The reason I would use heated rubber as opposed to poured
rubber is because the originals are brass.
The problem with making my own molds is that it is also one more
distraction from simply being able to design and make my jewelry, and
I have plenty of distractions these days running this business by
Can any of suggest a reliable company for affordable, low shrinkage
molds? I need to get this project underway very soon.
Thank you as always.
