What are mermaid tears? I have always been intrigued by stories. Folklore has it that mermaids yearn for company below the water and lure men to join them-for eternity. One mermaid so loved a ship's captain that she didn't want to see him end his days in the sea. When the captain lost his footing aboard the ship during a storm and fell overboard, rather than call him to her the mermaid calmed the sea to save him. This was a tragic mistake for her: although mermaids have all the powers of the sea within their grasp they are forbidden by Neptune to use them to interfere in human affairs. As punishment, she was banned to the bottom of the ocean, never again to swim to the surface-or see her beloved captain. Her tears are said to come to us as beautiful pieces of glass in stunning, crystallized colors. Vacuum formed on high quality LDPE thermal plastic. No mold release needed. Fill and remove. No need to wait. Measures in at 3.5 inches tall by 2.5 inches across at the widest point and 1.25 inches deep.
A wetter bath bomb mix (additional oils) is recommended when working with our molds. WATER to BIND and increase your oils. All my molds are hand tested by me prior to being released to consumers.

Caring for your molds:
Prolonged exposure to temperatures exceeding approximately 180º F may irreversibly deform the molds. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight may induce stress cracking.
LDPE may be susceptible to stress cracking when exposed to ultraviolet light and some chemicals. Wetting agents such as detergents may accelerate stress cracking.
For best results, we recommend hand washing our molds using normal dish washing detergents, avoiding abrasive type scouring pads. LDPE can be susceptible to scratching which may complicate unmolding.
