I purchased this mold knowing the hassle involved. I honestly didn't have that much trouble with them. Of course, my husband was the one unmolding. We stretched the mold as much as we could from the sides, then turned them over (top side up) and rubbed all over the top with our hands, pushed, and the soaps popped out. They were a lot of work but very popular.
This is a very difficult mold to use. The fact that it is white makes it virtually useless for putting in the white soap in the white lines. I have worked on mine for 1.5 hours. Have ultimately decided to scrap all of that work and start over with a different color. (Or else throw this mold in the garbage. I am not sure.)
However, on the other hand, I have another mold that is virtually the same that I purchased at Wal Mart. That mold, since it is bright pink, is useable. Certainly it will also be hard to use since this is an intricate design. But, the fact that it is something (anything) other than white allows you to put the white soap in the lines and see it.
I agree with the other writer that you must watch the video in order to be able to do this. I have watched several and understand the techniques. Nevertheless, seeing white soap in a white mold is impossible.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Marcelle! I'm so sorry you found this mold difficult to use. White soap is definitely hard to see when using a white mold we found we were able to successfully fill the design using white in the Easter Basket Worthy Soaps tutorial. Though, using a different color to fill the designs would work great as well! I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!
This mold is not for beginners. While the results are great, it is not simple to use. The accent soap covers 180 degrees of the mold. There is a Soap Queen website to show how to use it. I suggest looking at it. It isn't rocket science, but it does take some time (and scraping) to make it. Keep your clean up tool nearby!
