At the store, there were different types of mold making kits but since I knew I needed a flexible medium that I could peel back and remove larger pieces at the top through sometimes smaller base pieces. So the mold kits that harden to a stone like consistency were out. I was almost ready to give up when I came across the only remaining container of this silicone mold stuff. I snatched it up and with my 50% off coupon, it was only $10. (After making a bunch of molds, I barely used any, so I will save it for future projects.)

I did everything in about 10 layers just to be on the safe side. When dry, I unmolded the item and I had my mold. The stuff does not hurt the original, you couldn't tell that I had done anything to them.

Then it was on to the other pieces in Monopoly. Since my set doesn't have the cat, I don't even know if the new sets are being sold yet, I bought a small plastic cat at the craft store and followed the same process.
