Mold Mix 6

Postby Nikki ONeill » Mon Jan 29, 2018 12:20 pm

I have a couple unopened samples of Zircar's Mold Mix 6, and they are almost rock solid. Has anyone tried to reconstitute this material with a little water and perhaps a blender? According to Zircar, it might not be worth the effort. I want to paint some on a mold made from Zircar sheet material, for a better texture and finish. Thanks.
Nikki

I think I am sad to say that it would not be good . So sorry to break the bad news. It is SOOO wonderful when it is new and like thick cream

Thank You Leslie for the wonderfully presented video. Clear, excellent instructions. I want to mention that I took my rock solid sample and immersed it in water for a day and it became workable. Mixing with a hand mixer made it creamy again. I hope the fibers are still in good shape!

Well that is great. Let us know how it works for you. Try a small cast piece first perhaps open face . Les
