Luscious swirls, scrolls, pearls and a big, juicy scallop shell make up the Acanthus Scroll IOD Decor Mould.  This classic design is a conventionalized representation of an acanthus leaf, historically used as a decoration for Corinthian column capitals. The detailed scroll work and flourishes make it easy to achieve a shabby chic or vintage look on all your DIY home decor projects. Beyond furniture appliques and ornate castings for dresser makeovers, you can also use this Iron Orchid Designs mold for cake decorating and jewelry making.

IOD Silicone Moulds are among the finest and prettiest molds on the market. All of the designs are unique and have a degree of detail not found in any other molds available. Artistically inspired designs that draw on both classic elements and modern design, IOD molds are perfectly suited to furniture design and upcycle, jewelry making, soap making and home décor crafts. Made from high quality silicone, IOD molds are both food safe and oven safe and can be used with a variety of mediums, from air dry paper clay, polymer clay and resin to sugar molded edibles, such as candy, cookies, fondant, chocolate and pie crust--just be sure to use separate molds for your crafts and edibles.

Mold measures 6" x 10".

Additional Information

IOD Moulds can be used with many different mediums. We will cover the two most common here. Every medium has its own characteristics, challenges and virtues.

Air dry clay, or paper clay: IOD paper clay is an air-dry medium and one of our favorites. Like most paper pulp-based air-dry clays, some shrinking, warping and cracking is inherent. We like these qualities for a distressed, authentically vintage look. Our favorite way to apply moulded pieces is to remove them from the mould while still moist and adhere to the surface with the appropriate glue so it conforms well. For vertical surfaces, use a piece of low tack tape to hold it in place to prevent sliding.

Casting resins: There are some great pourable resins available. These have completely different qualities than paper clay. There is no shrinking or warping and the castings are more consistent. Depending on the project, these qualities can be helpful. If you need to conform them to a curved surface, this can be done if removed from the mould before it has completely hardened.

On releases: We find that most of the time a release the casting will come out without the use of a release, however, if you are having trouble with the material sticking (more common with clays than resins), a light dusting of simple cornstarch or arrowroot is a great choice.
