If you’ve identified problem areas in silicone molds you’re using, it can be helpful to experiment with release slits. Release slits are useful for mold shapes prone to wax breakage or sticking during the removal process, like delicate flowers or body candles.
Cut a release slit around the problem area with a sharp blade or knife. Before pouring wax into the mold, use duct tape to join it back together. Once the wax is completely cool and ready to remove, loosen the mold then gently begin peeling it away, starting with the release slit first.
While a small amount of wax may seep out before it cools, this technique is a great way to conquer ultra-delicate details. Plan on plenty of test attempts and prep your workspace accordingly!
