Soap Molds

If you are interested in making your own soap then you will need to find soap molds. There are many different types of soap molds including character molds, simple molds, silicone molds, and wood molds. The type of soap molds that you use will depend on the soap making process that you use, the type of wax that you use, and your design preferences.

Soapmaking moldThe first type of soap molds that you can buy are basic soap making molds. These molds are generally rectangular in shape, and are made from either wood or silicone. Wooden molds will need to lined with wax paper, plastic wrap, or greased to prevent the soap from sticking to the mold. Some silicone soap molds will need to be lined to prevent the soap from sticking to the mold, however, some are designed for quick release even without the liner.

If you are interested in more intricate soap molds then you can choose from several different soap mold types. First there are holiday themed soap molds such as Halloween, Christmas, and Easter soap molds. If you don’t want a holiday themed soap design, but you still want an interesting soap mold shape, then you can choose from a modern or contemporary soap mold design.

Your final choice for shaping soap is to hand-roll the soap into soap balls. To do this you will need to mix up your soap and then allow it to cool slightly so that you can handle the mixture. Next you will need to scoop out the soap and roll it between your palms to form the soap ball.
