Our buttermold pieces are offered mostly as a
decorative wall plaque cast in hydrastone and stained to look like wood.
Each piece is an exact replica of our original in detail and size.
We have categorized the molds into five different sizes and price points.
Included as part of the wall plaque series are some European cookie and
springerle molds which are distinguished by the use of CM before the item
number (eg., CM1 which is a small rectangular rose). In the "super"
size category, there is a very wide range of sizes and that is reflected
by a wide range of price based on size.
Our woodtone product is meant to be decorative only and should not be used on food
goods such as butter or cookie dough. They may be used for different kinds
of craft projects such as salt dough ornaments, paper casting, etc.
These castings create an interesting focal point on the wall especially
when hung in a collage type of grouping.
|We currently offer over one hundred wall plaque designs
from our antique butterstamps and cookie molds.|
|Our beeswax ornaments are made of 100% beeswax to
which we add a rich cranberry color and a heavy dose of pure cinnamon oil.
Beeswax has a very high melting point (140 + degrees) so we recommend hanging
it on your Christmas tree right next to the lights or in a warm area of your
home. The warmer the space, the stronger the scent. Beeswax is
light weight so do not be afraid to order the larger sized pieces; they will
not weigh down your branches. Many of our patterns are made from cookie,
chocolate and candy molds, both modern and antique. The pieces are
amazingly detailed and beautiful. Each piece comes with a small card of
explanation about the history and the care of beeswax.|
of these decorative wall plaques are flat, cast iron pieces used to make thin
wafer cookies. While the antique purist will most likely prefer the
plain black look, we also offer them in black with gold highlighting of the
design. The pattern does show up better with the gold.
|Over the years, we had many requests to be
able to use our molds to decorate butter or cookie dough but, because of the
oil-based stain, the wood-tones and black wafer molds should NOT be used with
food. Recently we started producing some of our butterpat-sized and
small molds as a food-safe piece. These are also made of hydrastone but
left unstained. We set a small handle into the back and coat them with
an FDA approved food-safe glaze. These pieces come packaged with
directions for use with either butter or cookie dough.|
