Making your own soap at home is one of the easiest and creative ways you can live a more frugal and natural life. Soap making is a fun and very enjoyable hobby. By learning to make your own soap you will be able to provide product for yourself and your family, you can sell your soap at local farmers markets, you can sell at craft shows, or you can even create a shop for selling your soap at one of the online retailers. Everyone you know will enjoy receiving a beautiful bar of hand made soap as a gift. One of the first steps toward creating these beautiful, hand crafted soaps is to decide on the mold you will use.
Once you learn the basics of soap making, you will want to invest in some of the beautiful designs and soap bar molds that are available. Molds can be made from many different materials but the easiest to use is the silicone mold. There are many benefits to using a silicon mold rather than a wooden or plastic mold. Soap will not stick to silicon molds and this allows you to more easily remove the soap. An additional benefit of using a silicone mold is that they do not leave behind lines or marks that other molds may create. Silicone molds can be found in select retail hobby or craft stores and online you can visit Top Molds online to find a large selection.
When you shop for your silicone soap mold you will find numerous designs ranging from juvenile, to formal, to classy. You will also find silicone molds available in individual sizes, small batch trays, and large batch trays such as a multiple cavity mini-square mold. There are different reasons for choosing each type of mold.
Individual silicone soap molds are most often used when creating small batches of soap. Because you are able to create only one bar at a time, the single soap mold will offer you the opportunity to create one of a kind designs and scents.
Using a silicone tray mold will allow you to create larger batches of soap with a single scent and design. Tray molds come in various sizes and shapes. These molds can create square, oval, or rectangle shaped bars. The mold may or may not include a design on each bar. Silicone tray molds are a wonderful way to create many bars at a time for parties or gifts.
As you become more creative with soap making you can have fun with 3D silicone molds. These molds create a realistic shaped soap with some of the most popular being the duck and teddy bear. Using silicone molds for your soap making will increase your creativity and make your soap making experience easier.
