How to Use Your 3D Soap Molds
In these step by step instructions you will learn how easy and fun it is to make your own professional 3D soap,
using our two-part 3D molds.
The 3D Soap Molds will cast a double sided, three dimensional bar of soap, just like commercial store bought bars.
Supplies You Will Need:
- Two-Part 3D Soap Mold
- Soap Base (either M&P Soap Base or CP Soap Supplies)
- Fragrance or Essential Oil
- Measuring Cup
- Small Knife
Pouring Your Soap
M&P - After preparing your M&P soap base, check the temperature with a thermometer, and verify that it is below
90°C, optimally 60-70°C. Pour the soap slowly and steadily into the mold.
CP - After preparing your CP soap base, pour the soap at a light trace, slowly and steadily into the mold.
Stand your mold in a tray, to catch any spills or drips.
Overfill the mold cavity by pouring an excess into the funnel. This will act as a reserve and eliminate any large
air pockets from forming at the top of the bar.
Lightly tap the mold onto the table to release any trapped air, and if necessary, refill the funnel reserve.
Unmolding & Trimming Your Soap:
When the soap is ready to release, gently separate the two halves, until one side separates from the other.
To release the soap from the remaining half, lightly and steadily twist the mold (ice tray style).
To trim your soap, score the cast on both sides with a small knife, where the funnel meets the bar. Then bend the
funnel excess, back and forth until it breaks away from the bar. Lastly, trim the excess material or "flashing" from
Tips for Unmolding M&P Soap:
Most M&P soap can be unmolded from our two-part molds in 4 hours at room temperature. To
expedite the unmolding time, after the soap solidifies, chill it to 12-15°C within the mold by placing it into the
freezer for 15 minutes, or into the refrigerator for 1 hour. This will make the soap much easier to unmold, and in a
fraction of the time at room temperature.
Tips for Unmolding CP Soap:
It is recommended to let the soap set in the molds for as long as necessary, usually 24 hours, until the soap
has sufficiently solidified. Resist the urge to look inside as this could cause a nasty spillage if the soap is not
