To cut a long story short, last August I've participated to a design competition for soap moulds organized by the fantastic The Soap Kitchen on-line store and I won (see Facebook and Twitter)!
My designs have been transformed into real moulds after a process including 3D printing of the models, silicon mould creation, resin forma production and final creation of the plastic moulds (production and manufacturing have been done at The Soap Kitchen, THANK YOU Colin and the whole team).
Moulds are made from food grade PETG and each cavity of the set measures approximately 75 mm x 50 mm x 25 mm.
If you need more details on the moulds, including how to use them, you can find them HERE
When I was preparing the sketches for the competition I gave each single mould a name (see picture ⇩), but they are sold as a set under the name of Four Seasons
I have been looking forward to testing this set and here you have some results and comments:
- pretty sturdy plastic (easy to handle)
- perfect cavity size for a hand soap
- detailed designs (they look real on the soap!)
- easy soap release (probably also soap recipe can make the difference in this process)
In other words: I love them!
|My fault for the stars on the left: I have been so eager to keep the soap in my hands, that I pulled abruptly and broke them...|
It's amazing to have your soap personalized with your own designs 😊😊😊
