So last time we found out what molding putty is and the very basics of how you use it. Now let’s get a little more in depth. How can I make the molding putty into something I can use? How does the molding putty make a mold? Well…let’s see…we left off with mixed molding putty ready to go so say hello my zoo… I’m starting to hoard small cute plastic animals.
