Description 

Vertical Wood Mold: Made with the same care and craftsmanship as our wildly popular Baltic Birch Molds, these exquisite molds are hand crafted here in Bellingham, Washington. The vertical style allows for unique and creative swirling and layering techniques that will wow your friends and customers.

Our vertical mold holds approximately 4 pounds of soap and creates a soap log that is 3 3/8" x 2 3/8" x 12". Cleverly held together on one side with 6 wingnuts, sliding out your finished soap is a breeze. Also includes an optional center divider for creating unusual looking split swirls. Liners fit snugly together so lining your molds is not necessary but the liners are not snug enough to work with melt and pour so we recomend cold and hot process soap only with this mold.

We recommend hand washing all of your molds and pieces to make sure they last a lifetime

 The Mold includes:

Two 13" x 4" side liners
Two 13" x 2 1/2" side liners
One center divider
One grooved liner for the bottom of the mold
Six wingnuts
One U-shaped pin (to keep the middle divider centered)

Mold looks goods, performs poorly.
Hello Brambleberry!!! Love your products. I have been making soap for 30 years. However i am not so much loving the verticle mold. I purchased two. Have experienced no such thing as easy release. Branbleberry suggested i use spray silicone. That was not successful. Tried wiping on liquid silicone. That was not successful. Will try some of the alternative methods suggested by users. Would suggest you include ALL METHODS of DETAILED RELEASE INSTRUCTIONS with this verticle mold when shipping to the purchaser. Will try the mold one more time (that will make 4 attempts). If it does not work, the mold is going to the trash. Thank you. vf

Hi Vicki! I'm sorry this product wasn't your favorite. If wiping your mold with cyclomethicone isn't helping, there are several things you can do to help unmold your soap easily. The first is to add 1 tsp. of Sodium Lactate per pound of oils to your cooled lye water. That helps create a harder bar that's easy to unmold! You can also add harder oils to your recipe, such as coconut oil or palm oil. You can also line the dividers with plastic wrap for easy unmolding. I'll be emailing you personally to troubleshoot!

I want another one of these!
I lusted after this mold for awhile and signed up immediately once I learned it was being used in the Spring Soap Crafting Club. I could use this for almost every batch and be happy. But beware the twist. The Wine Twist recipe in the Soap Crafting book has you twist the center for a circle shifting the colors to either side. Tip: I finally had success by slightly over twisting, then bring it back to center. I had no gap in my circle.

Worked Perfectly
The mold is made of quality materials and well constructed. Everything fit together well. I just finished my first batch of cold processed soap with it and it worked exactly the way it was designed. It unmolded fairly easily, after reading some of the reviews I was expecting more of a fight. I did coat with cyclomethicone and added sodium lactate to the batch. I left it for 48 hours and had no problem. My two sided soap is absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to show it off.

Rocked my Socks Off!
I had a flawless first run with this mold. I did a simple pour without using the dividers. I left my soap in for about 30 hours, and had absolutely no issues whatsoever getting the mold liner off. With a little pressure and a gentle slide, they peeled off clean and pretty. I'm excited to use this mold and try the two-tone and creative swirled effects. Definitely one to have!

Vertical Mold and Unmolding
The vertical mold iWork's like a dream and my 2 color soaps with a twist came out beautiful. I followed BBs suggestion to wipe the liners with Cyclomethicone and ease in Unmolding was so easy. Beautiful soaps and I can ask more money for the bigger and artistic bars of soap. This mold is a must have from BB. I left them in the mold uncovered for 60 hrs.
