the finished beads.....

here are four leaves that were made from each of the molds. . .different colors of clay were pressed into the molds and popped out, no release agent is needed.
i then wiped a bit of pearl ex on the surfaces of each one. . . brilliant gold in this instance.

please note that you can pour plaster directly onto your clay model for another way to make molds. the clay will not be reusable, neither is it with the latex. i think that the heat of the curing plaster bakes the clay!

feel free to use any of these ideas and leave a comment if you would like more infomation.....
