Call me dense and humor me...

Do you take the wooden cross out of the putty before the putty gets hard, or after? If after, does it stick?

What brand of putty?

What do you cut the mold into pieces with?

You re-use the pieces by placing them back in the original container so it holds its shape?

Even if I never "get it", I do love your crosses! Thanks for your instructions!
