You will receive a free "Glammed Turtles" tutorial with the purchase of this mold.

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.

    Turtles, lovely turtles

    I ordered this mold after watching Patricia Roberts Thompson video on YouTube. I belong to Az Polymer Clay Guild and we do beads for Eeads of Courage. As I am fairly new and inexperienced at sculpting things on my own without help I thought this mold was my solution. IT WAS and I will continue to use it and share. I picked my own colors and used one that I had been given for some of the shells. I have made 14 small turtles and one large turtle. The results are amazing. Thank You
