Description 

6" Silicone Slab Mold: The flexibility of silicone makes unmolding a small decorative slab soap quick and easy.  The inside of this mold has a high gloss finish giving your soap that smooth, professional look. The sides are re-inforced to prevent bowing. This is the perfect mold to make personal batches of beautiful soap or to test out a new swirl technique without sacrificing large quantities of soap making materials.

Tip: If making Cold Process soap in this (or any) silicone mold we recommend adding Sodium Lactate to your recipe. This will help to harden up your soap so that there won't be any dents or finger marks from unmolding the soap.

The mold holds 40 ounces when completely filled to the top but we reccomend keeping your recipes to 35 ounces and under for ease-of-use.

Mold Dimensions: 1-7/8" (Height) X 6" (Width) X 6" (Length)

Cavities: 1

Capacity: 40 oz

Make beautiful swirls, but an awkward size for my soaps
I bought this mold to make fancy swirl designs. Before this mold, I had to use my wooden loaf mold, having to cut and wrap freezer paper, pouring only enough to get the thickness of bar desired and only getting 6 bars (when I usually get 14 bars if poured at the 4.5 lb. full size). Although this 6" silicone square mold can achieve this goal of making fancy swirl designs, the 6" square shape doesn't give me the size bars I sell. I can get 2 bars my normal size, but then only small bars with the rest -or- 4 square bars, which are awkward and very different from the size soaps I sell -or- all small, guest size bars.

Hi Marla! I'm sorry this mold wasn't your favorite. We've found it's great for creating square bars, as seen in this Rainbow Hearts Melt and Pour Tutorial. You may like our 10" Silicone Loaf Mold, so you can have more rectangular bars. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this!

Perfect for swirling
I don't make soap for retail so i don't need a large amount of soap. This little slab makes the perfect amount of soap for personal use and a few bars to give away. It is small enough that you have plenty of time to use just a single bamboo skewer to do intricate swirls, including the peacock swirl. Everything pops out easily. Its my favorite mold!

Love this mold but wish it was bigger!
This is a great mold for smaller batches of soap, like shampoo bars or the like. However, the convenience of this mold in a larger size, like a 5+ pound batch or higher would be great! All in all I'm very happy with this mold. :)

This little mold is just wonderful
This smaller tray mold is just perfect for small test batches or to practice different swirling techniques. Because of the large base area, this one releases easier than comparable silicone loaf molds. I forgot my sodium lactate and my soap still jumped out of the mold just perfect. As usual, cleanup is a breeze and it oven processes just fine. I hope BB will offer these in other sizes in the future.
