A great starter kit for making batches of round soap. We love how much stability the stand adds to the Column Molds. Never worry about knocking over a freshly poured batch of soap again! The stand is made from Russian White Birch and has a finish on the front and back for easy clean-up. The Column Molds are made of heavy duty plastic and include a plastic, reusable liner and endcap.
This kit includes the Multi-Column Mold Stand and our Heavy Duty Column Molds, liners, and endcaps.
4 Column Kit Dimensions (when assembled): 10" X 10" X 12" Holds 12 pounds 4 ounces of soap
12 Column Kit Dimensions (when assembled): 14-1/2" X 19" X 12" Holds 36 pounds 12 ounces of soap
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Mary-Ann! I'm sorry you were disappointed in the results these molds gave you. Harder recipes do work best in the Column Mold & Stand Kit. To help make your recipe harder you can try using Sodium Lactate, a liquid salt that is naturally derived from the natural fermentation of sugars found in corn and beets. I will email you directly to help troubleshoot!
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Michaela! I'm so glad your melt and pour soap turns out beautifully with our Column Mold & Stand Kit! Though I'm sorry you have trouble using this mold with cold process soap. We love how CP turns out in the Heavy Duty Column Mold as seen in our Circle Swirled Soap in Column Mold tutorial. There can be many different reasons a recipe takes longer to set up. Also, using more hard oils or something like Sodium Lactate, which also hardens your soap, will definitely help! I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!

Reply from Bramble BerryHi Annette! I'm sorry these molds weren't your favorite. In our tests and recipes, we've found the cap comes off with a little bit of wiggling, as seen in the Circle Swirled Soap in Column Mold tutorial. To help that soap release easily, you can add more hard oils to your recipe, like coconut oil. Adding 1 tsp. of sodium lactate per pound of oils to your cooled lye water can help that soap release faster as well. Read more in the Sunday Night Spotlight: Sodium Lactate. It can also help to rub the inside of the mold with cyclomethicone to keep it from sticking. I'll be emailing you personally to talk more!
