I personally prefer the silicone mold, cheaper and easier to use with the material I prefer for these jobs,plaster of Paris, however if you want to use putty and stuff tike that is the right tool

I was just wondering about that as I too prefer to use plaster of paris for my dio bricks and wondered which would be easier to use: molds or this open guide. You'd think that with an open top and bottom you've got the advantage of ease of removal but that they might not be perfectly uniform in thickness depending on
shrinkage. Still, something to consider, though it does seem pricey for what is a piece of plastic with uniform holes...

i like to use the plaster of paris enough liquid so this kind of molds would be useless for me
