It had the perfect shape but the handle got in the way. Tabitha suggested using a cigar holder. Since I didn't have one of those, I got a blood drawing tube at work and tried that. Tabitha also suggested putting the molds in the refrigerator for a while to keep the clay from sticking.
I didn't have much success with that. A Google search turned up Judi Maddigan's site. She suggested using cornstarch lightly dusted on the mold. That worked really well.
Now I have four little red bowls. If they don't work for the lights, I can use them in the kitchen! :DThank you for all of your helpful suggestions. I think I'm getting closer to making something I can actually use?
Hope you have a lovely day! I would love to stay home and play but I need to go get ready for work. Money for minis, you know . . .
