As a part of my year of doing resin experiments, I took on the task this week to see whether or not I could cast resin in a gelatin mold. Even I was surprised at the results!
A couple of key points in the video:
1. You must use a mold release. I like the Petrolease mold release for helping me to get difficult castings out of the mold.
2. If you are going to use the Petrolease mold release, a couple of light coats is plenty. Do not saturate your mold.
3. Once you use a food mold for resin (I used a gelatin mold in this video), do not use it for food again.
4. Be prepared to ruin the mold. Your resin may not demold, you may melt the mold, and who knows what else. Know that you may have to trash everything!
