I’ve been a sculptor all my life, using silicone rubber from
Silicones, Inc. GI 1000 to make all my molds. Now I’m doing jewelry
pieces, and I find the rubber is just too flexible. When I push the
mold against the wax injector the nozzle goes too far in.
So I want to get set up with the very best, and most modern system
for jewelry molding there is. I have an old vulcanizer if that is
what is needed, but I see in my Rio catalogue that there are rubbers
that don’t even require pressure. I need to make molds that will last
for many duplicate parts, and capture the most intricate detail
So what is the best system, and best mold rubber, and which frame
system is the best, too? Hope that’s not too much to ask. Thank you.
