This is one person's collection of candy wrappers past and present. A good resource for your propping needs.
This is just a short, fun blog post with some sweet old candy wrappers.

Smooth Cast 325 casting plastic with a little bit of brown So-Strong pigment. I poured them onto plastic wrap, and removed the plastic wrap once they were cured. See those flaws in the one in front? That's where there were wrinkles in the plastic wrap. Smooth out your plastic wrap!

Once cured, I demolded the dial by gently removing the mother mold and peeling back the urethane rubber mold. TA-DA!
I actually made two castings of this piece so that we could cut the center piece from the outside ring, and mount them to the safe so that the interior could spin. To store the mold, I like to keep the mold in its mother mold, in a cool, dry place.
