Hi! I'm very new to bomb making and I'm working on it. I've gotten better but still have problems with getting the bombs out of the mold once it's good and dry. I wait at least a day if not two before I even touch them but I still feel like they're REALLY hard to get out. I feel like my consistency is finally getting better but this is the part I struggle with. Any tips?

If you are using a round plastic or stainless mold you should not be leaving them in the mold. Only leave them in the mold if you are using silicone. If the mold is silicone you need to be sure it has very little detail. If you are using a stainless mold, tapping the mold with a spoon will help to release them. If you are using a plastic mold, you can try tapping but be careful you don't crack the mold.

I am using the stainless steel so I will try tapping with the spoon. Thanks for the tip!

You can try dusting the inside of the mold with cornstarch before using.

The spoon tapping worked perfectly! I feel like this would be my first totally successful one I am so thrilled!
