Prior to using the molds, always add lubrication to allow for release of the finished product. Green Stuff World recommends using sculpter petroleum jelly, though hand soap can be used, as well as talc powder. Using Apoxie Sculpt, Milliput putty, clay, or other sculpting product, press them into the molds and press in by rolling a small, flat, lubricated rolling pin over the top to be sure the entire mold is filled. After, cut the excess off the top and allow to cure. Then, they will be able to be popped out by pulling back the rubber. The rivets have neat little detail with studs, hex bolts, screw heads, and other different shapes as well.
