I'm thinking of a multi-bar mold that makes pudgy, rounded piglets. 3-4 ounce bars, I suppose.

I like the cloud idea, too, but mine would be a loaf mold and the soap would be sliced. Not for an embed, but but to cut into full-sized bars. Does that make sense?

I would love the following:

Bar molds: 4-5 oz cloud shape (just seconding other requests, not trying to win on this one)
soap on a rope with slit to feed rope in on bottom
Coffee mug mold

Loaf mold: That 2 lb slab mold mentioned above with the slits to slide dividers in.

Bar design: silhouette of RPG figurines (magic user, fighter, cleric, whatever) monsters would also be a plus. Details would be a plus but a generic flat silhouette would be appreciated.

Attached is a figuine example.


Edit:
A link for more figurines

I love all the cloud ideas:
The large loaf for 4-5oz bars,
and
the small loaf for imbeds,
and
the individual molds for 4-5 oz 3D bars.

Always love clouds (perhaps because that's where my head is most of the time).

I also love the pot leaf on both sides idea. Have friends who would appreciate such bars.

And I love the 5 sides of honeycomb bar idea!

Shoot, I love most of the ideas already presented.

No original ideas of my own though. At least not practical ideas.

I was trying to help Joey get the shape if they make a mold they will need it. Easy to scale up.

Aha, that makes more sense! I quite like the shape of the clouds I posted, they're very soft and squishy looking.
