Above, I used our 2 pound log mold with wingnuts and lined it with butcher paper (which is a must). Here are the instructionsfor lining your mold.These molds are locally made (in Bellingham, WA) from Baltic Birch plywood. The sides and base have a shallow groove notched out for a perfect tight fit. The entire mold is held together with easy to use carriage bolts and wingnuts. When using you don’t need to take the mold apart – just loosen the wing nuts and slide your soap out! The inner mold dimensions are 7″ x 2.25″ x 3.25″ and holds about 2 pounds of soap.
To cut my colorful rebatch soap, I used our Wooden Cutter for the 2 and 4 pound molds. This mold comes with the scraper/cutter below and a wooden removable spacer that allows you to cut 4 ounce bars instead of 5 ounce bars. In the picture above, I chose to cut my soap with my kitchen knife (Shhh. Don’t tell my husband).
My goal was to create a tutorial strictly on molds and cutting but my soap turned out super cool (if I do say so myself). I used our basic rebatch base with our Purple, Blue and Canary labcolors. Here’s a tutorial on basic rebatch if this soap has inspired you. PS: If you want to try rebatch, now is a perfect time since it’s on sale for a limited time.
