Turtle Mold at Poly Clay Play

This unique and original mold contains two sea turtle bezels and four teardrop caboshapes (our name for unusually shaped cabochons). The mold comes with instructions how to mold the sea turtle bezel and a teardrop caboshape. The teardrop caboshape can then be to the bezel for a 'shell'.

Beautiful finishes on both the turtle and the teardrop shells can be achieved first by molding with metallic, translucent and pearl polymer clay. Also effective surface finishes are mica powders, millefiori cane slices, rubberstamping, Steampunk and other fun and fancy techniques. The finish can be high gloss, medium gloss and even matte finish.

This mold is not rated for use with food.
