When asked to have a craft stall at the local school I knew that my price points would be too high however I really did want to contribute so I decided to make some moulds that I could use to make some quick and simple cabochons.
Rather than use expensive mould makers I decided to use a much cheaper and accessible material, Zubber. It is sold at most toy stores and the pack shown below was from Toys'R'Us and it is currently under £2.00.
It is intended for children and is incredibly easy to use as you will see in the next few photographs. You get two tubs of coloured Zubber and a white tub of the activator, two measuring scoops and a plastic plate that you can make rubber charms with (not pictured because it is not used in this tutorial). I also selected some shaped buttons from my daughters button box which I am going to use to make the moulds. They can be plastic, wood, metal, anything you can think of really that you like the shape of.
Simply mix them together as quickly as possible until you have a ball of one solid colour (this is the same process no matter what colour you use), they will not set properly if they are not completely mixed in. It is pretty easy to mix because it is really soft and has an oily texture before it sets.
I hope that this tutorial helps and possibly inspires, Love Sam xxx
