how to make your own coin mold
You need to do two-
To capture the details of both sides, part of the mold of your coin.
The silicone rubber is ideal because it captures fine details and is very durable.
However, you will not be able to use high-
Cast the temperature metal of your copy.
Instead, you can create your original resin or tin replica using this mold.
Spread the newspaper in your work space and wear gloves and masks.
Take a piece of plasticine and roll it into a ball the size of a golf ball.
Put it in the newspaper.
Lay a plastic wrap on the ball.
Take a heavy book, press it on the ball, and press it into a flat disk of 1/2 thick.
Remove the book and plastic wrap.
Place your coins in the middle of the plasticine disc and press until the coins are half submerged.
Use your finger to pinch the plasticine around the coin to the edge and close any gap between the clay and the coin.
Roll out two ball-sized rubber balls, cut in half.
Every half arrangement
Sphere around the coin. Embed the 4-
Inch long wire in the plasticine, attach one tip to the coin and let the other tip hang on the plasticine bed.
The Wire will form a hole in your mold through which you can pour your casting material.
Create a plasticine wall around a 1 inch high 1/4 thick disc.
Make sure there are no holes in the barrier.
Take one of the two bottles that comes with your silicone kit and pour enough liquid into the mixing Cup to reach the potential half
Fill the plasticine bed
Pour the same amount of liquid from the second bottle into the second mixing cup.
Then pour the two liquids into the third cup and stir with a popsicle for a minute.
Pour the mixture into the plasticine bed and let it solidify for 24 hours.
Flip the mold and peel the plasticine to reveal the other side of the coin.
Be sure to peel off the four round Plasticine blocks as well.
Leave the wires in place.
You will now make a model of this side of the coin. Build a 1/4-
Erect an inch thick Plasticine wall around your mold so it can be 1 inch above the surface of your coin.
Make sure there are no holes in it.
Apply liquid wax on silicone rubber around coins and wires.
This prevents the two parts of the mold from sticking together.
Like the first batch, do the second batch of silicone rubber.
Pour it on the coin.
The Plasticine Wall will prevent it from overflowing.
Let the mold cure for 24 hours.
Silicone curing time varies from brand to brand.
Check if your packaging is accurate.
