The reason the caulking is suggested is because it is cheap, and it is lower cost than most silicone mold making materials. However, compare that to a mold making material that can be reused as many times as you want, and the cost is not comparable. Plus the silicone caulking shrinks by about 25%. 

So if cost is your concern, look at the ImPRESSive Putty MIX. For professional results. The Putty Mix has many advantages over Any mold making material:

1. Reusable

2. Super easy to use

3. Reliable

4. LOW Cost 

5. Even lower cost if you use it lots of times

6. Eco-friendly

7. No toxic chemicals, smells, or harmful ingredients

8. Solidifies by cooling for fast mold making

9. Professional results

10. No need for a mold box 

For those who like mold making materials that pour, the ComposiMold has all the same advantages except you need the mold box.
