POP - Need Quick Help!!

Posted by doone (My Page) on

Don't have a computer at home - so I hope someone will answer my questions with the next hour or so...

I'm going to try to make a rhubarb leaf POP mold this weekend. I would like for someone to "walk" me through this.

Here is what I know:

1. Start with water and drop handfuls of POP directly into the water.

That's all I know.

How runny will this be to squish onto my leaf? Do you add any fortifier to the POP? Is this a "negative?" I don't need a release agent, right?

Next, then of course, I want to make a silicone mold.

Thanks so much!!!

Impatient newbie
