Mini Heart Silicone Column Mold: This innovative 2-piece silicone column mold makes a mini heart shaped log that is amazingly easy to unmold. No more pushing until it feels like your fingers will break!

We love using these little molds for embedding shapes into soap using our 10" silicone loaf mold or cutting the log into pieces to decorate the tops of soap. Due to the length of our mini mold, extra support is needed for the mold to remain upright. We recommend using our heavy duty column mold or simply a tall glass to support the mold until your soap has hardened. The interlocking seal is easy to use, no clamps or bands are needed. And of course, since it is made of silicone, this mold is extremely easy to release your soap and wash. As with most silicone molds, your cp soap may need an extra day or two in this mold to fully harden since the flexible silicone sides do not allow air inside the mold, which results in slower evaporation of water and hardening of your soap. Works well with melt & pour soap, too!

Please Note: To avoid any leaking make sure the interlocking seal is fully pressed together around the entire edge of the mold. We recommend handwashing your mold.

Silicone Mini-heart Column Mold
Bought quite a few of these (mini-hearts, squares and circles) to make embeds for my soaps, but was a little disappointed that the molds do not seal as nicely (not water-tight) as the large silicone column mold. Because of this, you have to pour at a good trace, but NOT too thick, or the soap will not fill the column properly (because the mold is so small), and you can't tap the mold to help ease the soap down, because it will cause the seam to be compromised further, and soap to seep out. The concept of these mini-shape molds is great...just wish the execution of them was a little better. Though I haven't yet tried it myself, another reviewer for one of the column molds mentioned possibly using clamps, or something similar, to help hold the mold together proper, since it's not a water-tight seal?. But for now, I don't think I will purchase any more of the mini column molds.

Hi there and thank you so much for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you are having issues with the sealing of this mold. We often add small clamps to assist in the seal. Clamps will also help when you go to tap the mold down. We found that this mold works really well for our melt and pour projects. I will be personally in touch with your to see how we can help.

Excellent mold!
I've used this mold several times now, and it is great! My recipe produces a fairly hard soap so I didn't use any sodium lactate and it still came out perfectly. I didn't use any rubber bands and instead carefully triple checked the interlocking seal. It works great! This mold is easy to use and wash up.

Excellent Mold!
I purchased three of these mini heart silicone molds, and simply love them. Easy to put to together, and my goat's milk CP soap unmolded beautifully. Like a previous commenter, I rubber-banded the three together, and stood them upright in a narrow neck vase. No leakage at all. A very thin little vein of soap where it seeped into the seam, but it popped off easily, and very cleanly, when the soap was unmolded. Fabulous for making embeds. May have to buy the other shapes now!

Love This Heart Mold!
This is a great mold. I used a tall, skinny vase to support it and I did not have any leakage. Makes a perfectly shaped heart and released beautifully!
