The word ‘flamingo’ comes from the Spanish word ‘flamenco’ meaning fire, which refers to the bright pink or orange color of the feathers. The color is caused by the presence of carotenoid (don’t worry, we don’t know how to pronounce that either) pigments found in the algae and crustaceans that make up the diet of a flamingo. Tales of blue flamingos are completely false, but a single black flamingo has been seen twice. There are six flamingo species, including the greater flamingo, Chilean flamingo, lesser flamingo, Caribbean flamingo, Andean flamingo and puna flamingo. Correction: There are seven flamingo species. We forgot to mention the Zuri Flamingo. Never heard of it? A pretty good reason to add it to your cart, so that you could check it out up close and personal.
The ‘Flamingo Bloom’ mold can be used with clay or resin, as well as with food decoration mediums such as chocolate or fondant. When using resin with this mold, we recommend that you apply a release agent first, for example a thin layer of cooking oil spray. When using polymer or air-dry clay with this mold, we recommend that you apply a fine layer of cornstarch, talcum powder or water on the mold before filling it with clay.
