Need to hire someone to mold an object....

OK, my hobby sharing friends, I need to actually hire someone who can make a mold of a relatively simple object about 4" long, 1/2 inch wide, and 1/8 inch thick, and use that mold to cast duplicate parts out of molten sugar - basically make the part out of rock candy. I KNOW how bizarre this sounds, but it's actually for an honest-to-goodness technology development project associated with my job. Commercial injection mold makers are wildly too expensive. However, a very kind "gimmick" candy manufacturer suggested that doing this with a silicone mold ought to work fine - that's how they do this kind of thing, it's just that my job is too small. Any takers? Paul, apologies for using the board for this, we've about exhausted more conventional options. Interested parties, please email me! email@example.com
