Over 20 years since I bought this old Dinosaur Baking Mold.
I used it many times to bake cornbread and muffins, etc.
This baking mold is too old to use for baking, but it can still be used for other things.
These days Silicon and teflon Baking Mold are much easier to maintain for baking.
I want to try out using it for making Christmas decorations with a Dinosaur theme for Kids.
frontimage dino Here are some materials I tried out: Oil crayons (or wax pastel),
thread with glue, Hama pearls (melt beads, Pony Bead),
recycle paper, glue gun sticks, clay. As well as candle wax or Soap.

Use Old Baking MoldYou don’t need to fill up the mold when using the Hot-glue-gun
since it sticks to the sides in the shape of the mold.

creyon polacanthusHere I used old  oil crayons that I cut into smaller​ pieces to fit in the form.
​I was wanted to make a prettier mix of the colors,
but I left it in the heat for too long and the colors split like in the picture above.

recycle paper dinoHere I try to make figures using recycled paperrolls and eggpackage cardboard.
By mixing the materials in water try to make pulp water.
First tear the paper into many smaller pieces like in the picture above, then
let it soak into the water for about 15-20 minutes.
Then make Paper pulp by grinding it in a mixer or foodprocessor​​. Add some starch glue
(about ½ liter water- and about “3cm long toothpaste” amount of glue)
 into the water and mix well.

Then scoop out the pulp water and put it in the figure-mold with a tea strainer.
Spread the mixture evenly onto the shape.
After a little while the mixture will dry and extra water will come out
 so please wipe it with a cloth.
Once the Paper figure is completely dry and it is safe to then remove.

Depending on the color of the paper it might be recommended to paint,
color or draw on the figure as you see fit. It is also possible to use glitter powder and such.

Hama ankylosIf you want a figure with fine details the Hama beads is not recommended,
it might be better for broader shapes like cookie or gingerbread-man shapes.
Recomend to use melted bead type.
