These silicone moulds can be used with air dry clay, polymer clay, earthen clay, hot glue and more. Create unique designs for embellishing mixed media projects, wooden objects, home decor pieces, even jewelry.
The IOD Mould Acanthus Scroll is made from food safe materials (do not use the same set for food and crafts), and can be used to transform and create baked goods, furniture, soaps, jewelry, and just about anything you can think up in that creative brain of yours.
IOD Décor Moulds can be used with many different mediums. We will cover the two most common here. Every medium has its own characteristics, challenges, and virtues.
Air dry clay, or paper clay: IOD paper clay is an air dry medium, and one of our favorites. Like most paper pulp based air dry clays, some shrinking, warping, and cracking is inherent. We like these qualities for a distressed, authentically vintage look. Our favorite way to apply moulded pieces is to remove them from the mould while still moist, and adhere to the surface with the appropriate glue so it conforms well. For vertical surfaces, use a piece of low tack tape to hold it in place so it doesn’t slide.
Casting resins: There are some great pourable resins available. These have completely different qualities than the paper clay. There is no shrinking or warping, and the castings are more consistent. Depending on the project, these qualities can be helpful. If you need to conform them to a curved surface, this can be done if removed from the mould before it’s completely hardened.
On releases: We find that most of the time a release is not necessary and the casting will come out without the use of a release, however, if you are having trouble with the material sticking (more common with clays than resins), a light dusting of simple cornstarch or arrowroot is a great choice.

IOD Decor Transfers are designed in scale and motif to be appropriate for decor. Use them to add a unique touch to your furniture projects, wall art or accessories. Pressure sensitive, you apply them by rubbing them onto the surface. For best results of transfer, we recommend applying over Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint. Ensure a long lasting result by using Annie Sloan's Clear Soft Wax for the protection and lustre.
IOD has made many of their new Decor Transfers “buildable”, by adding opacity, (so that they look good when they overlap) and making the designs themselves more versatile, so that they work visually, when used in combination. Since the designs are more opaque than previous versions, they will show up well against dark colours as well as light.
- Distressable ( for complete customization, sand to your liking!)
- Buildable ( more opaque so they can be layered with other transfers, as well as show up against darker colours. Because sometimes one is just not enough, and a maker needs to make it their own.)
- Improved backing to help prevent transfer mishaps.
- Easy to use. These beauties transfer onto your project surface like butter.
IOD Décor Transfers are a little delicate, need a little extra care, but are so worth it. With a little instruction, they are easy to use and add instant style to your projects.
Preparation is key
