What We Sell
All pictures show examples of finished pieces. What
we offer are Brand New Molds that form the pieces.
These molds are made of plaster, to be used only with ceramic casting slip (mud) and perhaps wax.
NOT TO BE USED FOR CASTING PLASTER.
We do not offer Greenware, Bisque or Finished Pieces - Only the
Molds that make them.
Molds do not include straps or rubber bands to hold them together
while pouring slip into them.
You will have to purchase them from another ceramic supply.
The Ordering Process
WE ACCEPT ORDERS ONLY ONLINE.
Public organizations may optionally email or fax Purchase Orders instead..
We will NEVER take Telephone Orders.
The reason for this is because mistakes are often made over the phone
and we don't want either of us to lose money because of mistakes.
Just press the button to the right side of the mold you want.
This will take you to your shopping cart where you can adjust the quantity of items or
enter 0 to remove it from the cart. You can then press the button
to have the computer recalculate your total.
You can then continue shopping by pressing the button.
When you are finished, press the button and enter your
name, address, etc., along with your form of payment.
The computer does not charge your card. Nor does it show the estimated shipping charges (see below).
When we receive your order, we add on the estimated shipping amount and then
charge your card and email you your pending receipt.
When your order is completely shipped from all of the manufacturers, we adjust
what you paid by refunding or charging more so that you are paying the
actual shipping & handling charges.
We cannot be any fairer than that.
If you need a tracking number, ask the mold manufacturer AFTER you receive notice of the shipment.
Ordering Parts of Molds
If you want to order a mold that makes up a part of a complete piece
where a completed piece requires 2 or more molds to make it, if the individual mold parts
are not listed as available for sale, you must order them directly from
the Mold Manufacturer.

Where We Will Ship To
WE SHIP ONLY TO ADDRESSES IN THE UNITED STATES.
If you do not live in the U.S., you may have the manufacturer ship to a re-shipping company
or to a friend who will forward it on to you.
Notice: The company or person the manufacturer ships to must open the box and inspect it
for damages. The manufacturer is responsible for damages only to the oroginal U.S. destination.
Have the re-shipper insure it from their location to your final destination.
We recommend that you contact the Mold Manufacturer and see if they will ship to you
directly by UPS or FedEx, DHL or U.S. Mail. You would
then be purchasing directly from the manufacturer and not us.
ALLOW 3 - 6 WEEKS FOR DELIVERY.
MOLDS ARE DELIVERED DIRECTLY FROM THE MANUFACTURER TO YOUR DOOR.
NO MOLDS MAY BE PICKED UP AT OUR SHOP. WE DON'T STOCK ANY MOLDS.
PLEASE DO NOT ASK TO EXPEDITE YOUR ORDER. IT WON'T DO ANY GOOD.
THE MANUFACTURERS MAKE THE MOLDS ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED BASIS
THESE MOLDS ARE MADE TO ORDER AND ARE NOT WAITING ON THE SHELVES
READY TO SHIP.
Based on years of experience, the average time it takes for the
mold manufacturers to ship is:
(see also Shipping Cost Estimate)
PRICES SHOWN DO NOT INCLUDE SHIPPING CHARGES.
THESE CHARGES ARE ADDED AFTER YOU PLACE YOUR ORDER.
SHIPPING CHARGES WILL NOT BE SHOWN ON YOUR COMPUTER-GENERATED RECEIPT.
APPROXIMATE SHIPPING CHARGES WILL BE CALCULATED
AND YOUR CARD CHARGED
WHEN YOUR ORDER IS PREPARED TO BE SENT TO THE MANUFACTURER(S).
WHEN YOUR ORDER IS COMPLETE AND WE KNOW HOW MUCH
THE MANUFACTURER(S) CHARGED FOR SHIPPING, WE WILL
EITHER REFUND YOUR CARD IF YOU PAID TOO MUCH
OR CHARGE YOUR CARD MORE IF YOU PAID TOO LITTLE
SO THAT YOU ARE PAYING THE ACTUAL SHIPPING AND HANDLING CHARGES
AND NOT JUST A MADE-UP FIGURE.
WE WILL NOTIFY YOU BY EMAIL WHEN YOUR ORDER HAS BEEN SHIPPED.
A FINAL RECEIPT, INCLUDING THE ACTUAL SHIPPING CHARGES WILL BE INCLUDED
AS AN ATTACHMENT TO THAT EMAIL
NOTE: EACH MANUFACTURER SHIPS THE MOLDS IT MAKES.
YOU CAN SEE HOW WE COMPUTE THE APPROXIMATE SHIPPING COSTS
THE COST PER MOLD FOR SHIPPING GOES DOWN IF YOU ORDER MORE MOLDS FROM
THAT PARTICULAR MANUFACTURER. UPS AND FEDEX CHARGE SO MUCH FOR A BOX.
THE MORE THAT CAN BE PLACED IN THE BOX, THE LESS THE SHIPPING PER MOLD
TO DECREASE SHIPPING CHARGES, ORDER MULTIPLE MOLDS MADE FROM
JUST BECAUSE YOUR ORDER CONTAINS THE SAME MOLD COMPANY,
SOME OF THAT COMPANY'S MOLDS MAY BE MADE BY DIFFERENT MANUFACTURERS.
THAT IS BECAUSE WHEN OLD COMPANIES SOLD THEIR MASTERS, THEY MAY HAVE BEEN
SOLD TO A FEW DIFFERENT BUYERS.
FOR EXAMPLE, CERTAIN BYRON MOLDS ARE NOW MADE BY 3 DIFFERENT MANUFACTURERS.
CHECK THE MOLD MANUFACTURER COLUMN FOR EACH
MOLD YOU WISH TO ORDER ON THE PAGE.

A current catalog with pictures of these molds is available on our Books
Mold Listings Lacking Pictures
If a picture is not included with the description of a mold, then we don't have a picture of the finished piece.
Note that we will not email pictures to individuals nor try to find a
mold that matches a picture you send us.
Try looking on the mold manufacturer's
They may have a picture of the mold, but likely will not; otherwise, we would also have it..
Mold Listings Lacking Sizes
The sizes of the finished pieces are sometimes listed in the descriptions.
But the description and size is dependent on the information the mold
manufacturers gave us.
If the size is not given and you need to know, don't ask us, but rather,
contact the manufacturer.
What if a Mold is Not Listed?
If you are looking for a mold attachment that is not listed separately for sale,
you will have to order that part directly from the mold manufacturer.
If you tried using the Mold Search and did not find what you are looking for,
make sure you entered only ONE word that would be in the description.
If you were looking for a mold number, make sure you enter ONLY the number
without any prefixes or suffixes. Do not enter S-1300 or DM2300A. Enter only 1300 or 2300.
In other words, make sure you have followed
If you are looking for something not listed on our site, such as a certain mold catalog and can't
find it in the Books/Catalogs page, we don't have it.
If you are looking for a mold made by a certain company
that is not named in the list under Mold Search,
we do not sell it and don't know where you can get it.
If you are looking for a specific mold from a company we do represent, if it is not listed when you
click on the link under Mold Search, consider that
all of the molds we sell
by mold company in alpha-numeric order. If you are
looking for a mold number
and it is skipped on our web site, that mold is not available from the
and we do not know where you might find it. Don't ask us where to get
it. We won't know.
Certain mold companies such as Albertas, have their molds listed differently and you may have
to list them and go the the last page to find the mold you want, or use the mold search by name.
WE DO NOT ATTEND THE CERAMIC SHOWS.
MOLD SHIPPING COST ESTIMATE
The following chart shows how we compute your approximate shipping costs.
Consider that most mold companies are out of business and they have been bought out by several manufacturers.
The only mold company that we carry that still makes its own molds is Clay Magic. And their discontinued
molds they have sold to Starlite Molds.
Add up the total cost of the molds you selected for EACH SPECIFIC MANUFACTURER
(not mold company) separately.
Then use the table below to get the approximate shipping costs from that
Note that one manufacturer may make several different mold companies'
Also, different molds of a particular company may be made by different
FOR EXAMPLE, CERTAIN BYRON MOLDS ARE NOW MADE BY 3 DIFFERENT MANUFACTURERS.
If you have a mold that costs $20 made by one manufacturer and another
mold that costs $15 from another manufacturer,
the approximate cost we calculate for shipping would be $21 + $21 = $42,
because each manufacturer is shipping their own molds to you.
Regardles of how much you initially pay for the Estimated Shipping & Handling, the final amount you pay will be
the Actual & Handling costs. When all of the molds have been shipped, your total will be adjusted
either up or down or not at all from that Estimated Cost we originally charge your card.
Note: For shipments to Alaska and Hawaii, double the shipment estimate. The actual shipping cost
will probably be even more.
For shipments to the Eastern or Western Seaboard, add 10% to the estinate below because the
actual shipping & handling costs will probably be more due to the weight and extra distance
your order must travel from the Midwest. This is not the shipper's fault. Blame UPS.
Note that the ESTIMATED shipping costs are based on molds that are not too big and
do not weight a lot. For a set of large molds weighing 30 lbs or more, expect the estimated and actual
shipping costs to be more because these molds have to be shipped one by one
in their own boxes due to size and weight constraints. A large order of such molds will have
to be shipped by motor freight which has a high cost but will be less than if shipped any other way.
