New experiments

Paisley-shaped pendants made from air-dry clay using a candy mold. And one little hand-shaped polka-dotted heart. I had to pry the pendants out of the mold so they're all a little wonky at the top near the hole. I have to figure out a way to get them out of the mold without denting/tearing up the clay. If I let them dry in the mold, would they pop out easier? I know they shrink a little when they cure but I have nightmares of them being bonded to the mold. That happened to the resin I poured into a few of the molds. I didn't think I'd need to use mold release and happily poured resin into 5 of the little paisley molds only to find out a day later that the resin was now part of the mold. Sigh...
