What silicone is used to make my mold?
We use a small variety of hardy but soft silicones to make our molds. Our molds are typically made out of Dragon Skin 10 NV or Moldstar 20T. These silicones are not food safe.
How do I properly demold?
Demolding dice properly is important to the longevity of your mold. When demolding, pull your flashing off the face of your molds, then peel your mold back from the dice themselves a bit to gently release the numbers. From there, flip your mold upside down. Use your fingers on both hands to grasp the mold with your thumbs on the bottom. Peel the sides away from the die and push it out with one motion with your thumb. Do not wiggle or pull dice out from the other side, as this can lead to tearing.
Why are my faces matte/foggy?
The 1 faces on our molds are slightly matte due to the mold release process we use while manufacturing our molds. These faces are meant to be cleaned up and/or polished.
My resin didn’t cure, how do I clean my mold?
If you have uncured resin in your mold, place it in a zippable bag and place it in your freezer. As the resin cools, it’s easier to pull out as one piece. Use gloves to pull your mold out of the bag and demold as much of your resin as possible. To clean your mold out, use isopropyl alcohol and qtips until all of the uncured resin is removed.
How to fix dented faces around the 1 on my d20?
Dented faces around the 1 on your d20 can happen due to too much air in your mold and/or damage to the edges of the d20 opening.
How do I clean them?
Our cups are made out of thin silicone. To clean them, use warm, soapy water and scrub them gently with a towel to release the resin. In the case of inhibited resin being in your cups, use isopropyl alcohol with a towel in the molds to clean up the uncured silicone. Be sure to wear gloves and work in a well-ventilated area when working with uncured resin.
Can you print fun shapes?
Yes! We create dice in all sorts of fun shapes and sizes!
How do I stop my masters from inhibiting?
The resin we use to print masters is typically fairly resistant to inhibition issues. In the case you experience inhibition, use isopropyl alcohol and qtips to clean your dice. To clean out your numbers, pool isopropyl alcohol into them and use a wooden toothpick to collect the uncured silicone out of them and ensure your master is washed well before casting in silicone again.
