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.

I used this mold for the first time the other day, and my soap popped out easily within 24 hours and looked nice and smooth. It was fun to try a new technique in a slab mold and I'm looking forward to soaping more often. I highly recommend this one for test batches, it's a great size.
I LOVE this soap mold. PERFECT for test batches to try different techniques. AWESOME!
This is great for small batches. I get 6 bars that are 2" x 3" and up to 2" thick. I use it mostly for rebatching, but I have used it for some great MP bars too! You can get 6 bars out of this mold that are the same size that you would get if you were going to use the 9, 18 or 36 bar birch molds.
I have three BB silicone molds and I love them all. However, I've only used this one twice because I have no idea how to cut the bars into "regular" size.
Reply from Bramble BerryHi Ashlee! I'm glad you like the mold! It's great for small decorative slabs, square bars or small test batches. If you're looking for more "regular" size bars you may like our 10" Silicone Loaf Mold. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this!
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!
