Joe: Play-doh is nothing but Boric Acid powder and Silicone oil. Yeah, probably some silicate fillers too. I didn’t have to use wax paper as I did with modeling clay, I knew Play-Doh would neither stick to, or distort when the brass hinge was lifted off. Well, there is that infamous residue that Play-Doh leaves on everything, but not a problem for the metal hardware. I have some aerosol mold-release agent which I could have used. Cool suggestion, though! I’m hoping other people who have a way to do this will offer their methods too, like GregN did!
