Default make them

you make them.

take polymer clay and impress a button, doll face into it and bake accordingly... then use the mold for pouring utee into it.

you can also use cookie cutters... place on nonstick craft sheet and pour utee into it.

Default UTEE

Just a note of caution when using the polymer clay. I have worked with the clay for over 20 years and you have to be careful that you never heat it beyond the 275 degrees F or it will burn and the fumes become caustic. It's a safe and non-toxic clay when baked at the proper temp but if you heat it beyond that you are inviting trouble. A safe mold may be using plaster of paris. Read all instructions before applying that high of heat to any item!

I know this old, but can someone tell me, can you use a plaster mold with UTEE? I brought some from Hobby Lobby. I brought a soap mold from UTEE, but that's not going work, because UTEE gets 350 degrees hot of F. The soap mold has to be above 150 degrees of F. Just information there, just in case someone thought the same thing I did

there is putty about 2 part too make your own moulds, just better to have bendy ones, so you don't spoil your makes. But you can pour it onto a mat and stamp into it.

You can make your own silicone moulds- this Pinterest link to a You tube video shows you how.
I made some about 6 months ago, using this recipe, and they are still flexible now.
Couple of points: It is indeed a very messy thing to mix, I wore disposable gloves.
Second, she says she left hers to cure(harden) overnight. I'm guessing humidity comes into this, as mine started to harden after less than an hour, so don't make up too big a batch until you know how long you have to work with it. But its great stuff, and works out way cheaper than silicone putty you can buy.
One more point- make sure you get Silicone Sealant, NOT Acrylic sealant. I picked up the wrong one first time round, and it sets solid.
