Inexpensive silicone molds

Does anyone know where I can get some inexpensive silicone molds? I love Vanyulay's molds but quite frankly I can only afford a few of them. I'm basically looking for Petit Four and chocolate candy type molds. I'm going to search the internet see what I come up with but if anyone knows off the top of their head would appreciate a point in the right direction. Thanks :smiley2:

have you ever made your own? Its super easy, I swear. And cheaper.. you can buy the silicone from Smooth-On, there are great tutorial videos on there. I use the Oomoo silicone http://www.smooth-on.com/Silicone-Rubber-an/c2_1113_1136/index.html

its $25 for a test kit, which is actually ALOT of rubber. I havent ever bought the big buckets because I never need that much at once... its great stuff though.

@Acadian Girl... thanks for the link I will check them out. :cheesy2:

@Luminous...I never have thought of doing my own, I must say that does sound tempting, I wish there were more hours in a day, I have a week off at the end of December so maybe I will give it a try...thanks for the link! ;)

Yeah its a bit of a learning curve but once you get it down you can save SOOOO much money in the long run and you can make a silicone mold of anything!! I found a bunch of old brass paperweights that I know would make amazing soap molds.. I really cant resist the urge to make molds out of them when I have some spare money to buy the silicone, i finally ran out of my last bottle.

Someday I want to make candle molds from them, but like you said sometimes there arent enough hours in the day!! lol

Couple of weeks ago I was looking for molds. Been wanting to make my bath melts in a candy/bon-bon shape. Saved several sites in a favorites folder. Maybe these will help you out.

JB Prince is probably more expensive than what you are looking for. Although some of their candy molds aren't too bad for what you get. I haven't bought any molds from them but am familiar with them from the food industry side of things. My husband used to work at Disney and they bought quite a bit from them for the kitchens. He also bought my mandoline slicer from them, which I love. They have excellent quality merchandise.

Anyway, hth.
