Eco-friendly, re-usable, food safe mold making. Duplicate almost anything. Made in Manchester, Maine. This material is an eco-friendly reusable mold making putty that allows you to duplicate your own parts into edible treats. Heat this putty in the microwave for 10 seconds, press over your object, cool it, pull off and pour in your chocolate or butter or isomalt or fondant or gum paste.In 10 minutes you've made a mold and some awesome shapes that you can eat.
What makes this truly unique and different from anything else on the market is you can re-melt this putty to make a new shape just by putting it in the microwave for another 10 seconds.
It's a rubber that can be re-melted and re-used for mold making and casting. It is eco-friendly, re-usable, and now food safe. You can duplicate almost anything just by pressing the part into the soft putty and letting it cool to solidify. Made in Manchester, Maine by a small company that has been selling ComposiMold re-usable mold making materials for the past 7 years.
This project is about making and providing ways for people to make what they want to produce a food safe, eco-friendly, re-usable molding putty.
It works like this:
Place the putty into the microwave. The 1.5 oz Putty takes about 15 seconds in the microwave. The 6 oz. takes a little over a minute to heat up.
It will be hot initially, so let it cool so you can handle it easily. Press it over the object you want to duplicate, and let it cool. Chill the mold in your freezer will speed this up a lot. A 1.5 oz. mold can be chilled in about 5 minutes.
Pull out the original part and pour or press in your new casting material: chocolate, fondant, gelatin (Jell-O), etc. If you're doing hot candies like sugar candies or isomalts, you may need to chill your mold for larger pieces.
Use that mold to make as many pieces as you want, then re-melt it to make a new shape. Use and re-use it as many times as you want.
It's like a 3D printer for the rest of us.
About 2 years ago, Shawn Lemelin and Stan Farrell were trying to develop eco-friendly polymers for use in ComposiMold. At the same time, we were frustrated at the melting temperature limitations of ComposiMold. It was through this experimentation that the ImPRESSive Putty was developed. It was first called it ReMold Putty, but that sounded too engineer-ish).
In the meantime, ComposiMold was being used by more and more cake decorators and chocolatiers. The idea of a re-usable mold making material was very well received. The comparisons were pretty striking: you can buy a pre-made silicone mold for about $10 to $20, which is the same price as a container of ComposiMold that you can use as many times as you want.
But the cake decorators wanted a little more: many cake decorators like to use isomalt or other candies to make decorations, but ComposiMold couldn't quite get to this temperature. Also, with ComposiMold it is difficult to make molds of lace and other spaced out objects because the ComposiMold would flow in and around the part, making it a challenge to pour in your casting material. The ImPRESSive Putty solves these issues, plus, it makes mold making incredibly easy.
So what can you make with Food Safe ImPRESSive Putty? A lot! From chocolates to fondants to Marzipan, to Jell-O. Lego into fondant pieces are popular. Jewelry into edible treats. 3D printed parts into chocolates. You don't have to purchase any more pre-made molds. You can make your own, anytime you want. Small molds can be made in less than 10 minutes. Larger molds in less than an hour.
