Last week, I tried molding a resin curb link bracelet I found in the bargain bin at a local craft store. The results from that experiment showed that molding the links horizontally wasn’t going to work. I decided to try again this week, but with the curb links in a vertical position. I placed them in my mold box on double sided tape. Not shown: I poured melted Composimold reusable mold making material over my bracelet links. I allowed it to fully cool before removing it from the mold cup.
My finished resin links look pretty good compared to the original. Now, in spirit of full disclosure, I’m not sure I would do this again. This was a lot of work to only get a few links. I don’t see myself trying to recreate a full length resin bracelet this way. What I could see, however, is having this mold handy and filling it with resin leftover from another project. It might take awhile, but I could eventually have a multi-colored bracelet.
Would you try this?
