This 1 piece plastic small cubes mold has a conveniently attached lid and 6 small cavities so you can easily break up your product into smaller pieces. Traditionally this mold is meant for making and storing wax tarts for use in a wax melter. However the mold would also be great for making bath bombs, soap bars, or lotion bars that can be used in adorable break apart pieces!
Mold Capacity: 3.3 oz
Cavity (individual small cube) Capacity: 0.55 oz
Mold Dimensions: 3" X 2-1/8" X 1"
Cavity (individual small cube) Dimensions: 1" X 1" X 7/8"
Note: mold edge and eyelet add 1" to package length and 1/2" to width
This mold held 3 oz of scented waxes which worked out perfectly for a 6 oz batch giving me two evenly filled packages. I had no trouble with the lids.
These do NOT hold 3.8oz. Don't make the same mistake I did... I paid to have labels designed and printed saying 3.8oz & that is all money down the drain since they don't hold that much. At the very very max, you can get 3.45oz in these. I now have to pay AGAIN to have new labels created and printed. Very annoying!
The clamshells themselves are nice, though. They work perfectly for wax tarts or small soap cubes.
I got these to use for samples! They are the perfect size for a sample big enough for 1 or 2 washes! This way I can try out a recipe and my customers can try a scent. Win win! I've had no issues with them leaking so far, the lids ARE tight but I think that's a good thing!
I like these molds, but I would recommend not closing them until the wax has solidified as they are a little tight to open and close. I haven't had trouble with them leaking, but as I haven't used a ton of them yet I will watch for that and pour them on a sheet pan. I will also make sure my wax isn't too hot, just in case. They do hold a lot more if you "overfill" the cavities with wax (see the photo above). Then you just break the wax cubes apart easily when you go to use them.
I really wanted to like these molds. They seem like such a great idea and I loved the idea of having break away melts like the big boys :) but some huge cons for this product - the product number or whatever on the front is not pretty but you can cover it up with a product sticker, I did have 1 leak all over the table so that one was ruined and I had to clean the other molds around it, and the biggest of all: I can't get them open!! I had to redo a batch of 6 and it took me 20 minutes to get them open while trying not to ruin the package :( almost impossible...I'd love to see a new type of wax melt mold/package here because I do love Brambleberry!
