Re: Whats your favorite CP soap mold and why?
I prefer primarily wood molds for soaping before any other material. They just seem to give me the most optimal result. YMMV.
Slab mold~ Upland slab with the cut lines. I also love my divider TOG mold after lined it with mylar over the funky foam. Perfect. I adored my Misty Creek molds. But they were a PITA to cut with the wide guide slots. Sniff.
Log mold would be either an Upland or the various wooden log molds I've basterdized with silicone baking mats from eBay. I concocted many great molds like this, even the IKEA drawer organizer for small batches and testing. The soap comes out of the mold super easy and smooth as glass. I made nine 2 lb molds with the silicone for under fifty bucks. The type sized for the 9x5 bread pans are the best for this mold- less cutting and waste.
I currently have a good sized sheet of Lexan to line the larger log molds for my next experiment. Just awaiting on the cutting job, I don't touch power tools as such cuz I know my limitations. Hahaha.
If ever to attempt once again to go to HDPE~ I'd order a Jeff mold.

I never married because there was no need. I have three pets at home which answer the same purpose as a husband. I have a dog which growls every morning, a parrot which swears all afternoon, and a cat that comes home late at night. ~ Marie Corelli
