This 2 piece plastic bath bomb mold has it all! Sleek, sturdy design, with an airtight seal along with a pre-punched eyelet that makes hanging and displaying your product simple.
To use the mold: fill each side pretty firmly, add a little extra bath bomb material to the center to keep it all together, and press the mold together. To avoid any imperfections on your bath bomb, make sure to direct pressure to the edges of the mold rather than the center. Don't forget to line up the eyelets of each side when molding. Note, if the mold is packed too firmly it can make it difficult to open and close the packaging.
Mold Capacity: 3.8 oz
Mold Cavity Diameter: 2-1/8
Note: mold edge and eyelet add 1" to total package diameter.
I've been using these for 3 years now... The exact same ones from my original order. I've made 400 bombs in the last month using just one as I lost the others during a move. Never had a sharp edge or issues with unmolding. I tend to overfil, and my bombs are on average 4.25ounces. Great size, great mold, sells well.
I was excited to do round bath bombs for the first time so I ordered these. However, 7/10 of the bombs came apart upon opening, and the other 3 have a huge seem. The plastic edges are also very sharp, and I've managed to slice my fingers open quite a few times already. I found them difficult to open without denting the outside, or caving it in as well. The might be good for packaging, if labeled with a warning. Me personally, I doubt I would want others to struggle like I did when trying to enjoy the product.
Kelsey from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Bailey! I'm so sorry you had difficulty working with these molds. We have found it helps to clear off any excess powder from the seam before capping the bath bombs, as seen in the Pumpkin Spice Latte Bath Bombs tutorial. That helps them seal shut and makes the seam look a bit smaller. Directing pressure to the seam of the mold also helps prevent dents on top of the bath bomb. Customer service has contacted you directly to resolve this issue!
I agree with the other users about the mold being flimsy and leaving indents. I thought maybe it was just user error but there is no way to avoid it. I was excited to use the but I am going back to plastic ornaments from hobby lobby. The stainless steal one from brambleberry is great with the exception of that thy at pretty large
Kelsey from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Kelley! Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry these molds did not work out for you. We love this Bath Bomb Mold & Package and find them to work perfectly as both the mold for bombs as well as your packaging if you choose! To help the bath bombs unmold smoothly without any dents, you can add about 5 drops of cyclomethicone to the molds, swirl and drain on a paper towel. That will create a slick surface to help unmolding. See that process in the Surprise Bath Fizzies video. You can also add about 1 tablespoon of kaolin clay per cup of fizzy mixture. That helps make the bath bomb a bit sturdier so it's less likely to dent when unmolding. Get more tips in the Bath Bomb Questions and Answers post.
Although these make the perfect large sized bomb, they are so flexible that you leave indents on your bomb now matter how hard you try not to. It's impossible to press at the seams at first when using because you're trying to bring all your ingredients together in the center. They are reusable many times and that's a definite plus but out of 40 bombs, and I've made hundreds, I got 2 that came out with very minor dents in them. The rest were sold in an "ugly bath bomb" bucket a reduced price. Not worth the price.
This is a nice mold package, but there is a learning curve to it. If you over-fill the cavity you will have issues. Also, pressing anywhere but the seem will likely cause you to bend the plastic, crack it, or put fingerprints in your bomb. These are really best suited for a one step mold and leave in package, not reusable molds. I did, however, easily unmold several (after a few hours cure time) in order to clean the plastic, as my overfilling and readjusting made a messy presentation. Once washed and dried the replacing and finishing with a bow was easy, the bombs all pretty and neat, and the lessons learned! They take less material than you think, so practice with one until you get it down, then put them up for sale and I think you will love them! I would like to see another quantity price break though. 10 is too few while a case is too many, how about 100 or 200 for less than .50 ea?
