Everyone knows the sweet smell of Cleopatra glues, scented with almonds, which has become in a few years the olfactory symbol of a whole generation of schoolchildren. For two decades, the French brand has diversified into creative hobbies in all their forms: the Cléopâtre branded products now offer DIY enthusiasts the opportunity to express themselves through numerous media! From resin to varnish, via gouache and Indian ink, Cléopâtre explores the world of handmade with talent. The French brand is today launching a silicone molding paste called Patamould: an ingenious and easy-to-use product that allows it to make its own molds in less than 10 minutes. I wanted to know what was hidden behind this funny name by testing in my turn the manufacture of my first DIY container. Explanations in pictures.

Quick and easy to use

I was a little taken aback when I received the package containing the Patamould. I was not sure what to expect, so I was intrigued by these two small pots - one white, the other blue - delivered without any accessories. However, once the instructions were read, I quickly understood that the use of the Patamould does not require any particular tool: everything is done by hand, according to the user's inspiration. So I first chose a toy to duplicate. The idea of ​​casting this little character seemed fun to me for a first try, but the possibilities are numerous! I am thinking in particular of party or wedding table decorations, for which a mold is essential in order to reproduce the same decor dozens of times. The product is also suitable for home-made lovers (candles, soaps, plaster, resin or cold porcelain objects, etc.) who wish to make their own creations, molded in their favorite form.

When everything is mixed…

Once the two jars "Pata" and "mold" out of the bag, I just had to mix their contents (in part or in whole) at 50/50 in order to form a homogeneous ball of dough of light blue color. I then firmly pressed the object to be duplicated into the dough, before delicately removing it so as not to damage the molded form. Finally, I let it dry for several minutes in the open air (the brand recommends between 5 and 20 minutes of drying). Obviously you have to think about your project upstream because once the molding is done and the dough is dry, the latter is no longer reusable for another molding.

My mold is finally ready to work, and I must admit that the patamould has faithfully reproduced every little detail of the toy. The product is strong, and promises great achievements for the future!

Reproduce a shape according to your wishes

About 80grs of Patamould are needed to make molds up to 3 or 4 cm in diameter: that's enough to open up the field of possibilities for all lovers of home-made creations! The mold can then be filled with all types of plasticine (Wepam, Fimo, Sculpey, Cernit…), but also with epoxy resins or plaster. Be careful however, because the product is not designed to receive food! It can be used approximately 50 times depending on the aggressiveness of the materials, and must be cleaned with soapy water between each use. Patamould Cleopatra from € 9.99 for 80g More info on //
