What type of plastic is that? It looks hard to work with. I had one similar to that, and I had alot of trouble with it.

It's thick HDPE. This is my second HDPE mold from Rich. It comes with a key, as you can see in the pic, for the sides to slide right out.

Irena, do you find the soap will stick to the sides and ends of this type mold? And doesn't he, for an additional cost, sell a thin sheet of HDPE to line the bottom for this very reason? Is there no top needed/included?
I think that what he states on his videos and web site. Other than that, it's a good looking mold. 8)

Paul.... :wink:

No Paul, they do not stick. At least I have not had that problem. I don't line my molds so I don't use any type of a liner. I don't gel my soaps, so I prefer not to have any type of a lid.

Just for the heck of it, I made just one log in it:

I love the look of that soap log, Irena! Nice presentation. Great mold! Would love to hear how you like it with repeated uses.
I just ordered one from TOG and am eagerly awaiting its arrival. I live so far from all the suppliers, and it's Xmas shipping time. Sigh. Patience is a virtue I am learning in spades.

Those look cool! May I ask how much those kind of molds run for?
I'm curious and clueless :lol:
Val, I think this mold sells for the $130. 00 to $150.00 range. He has some prices listed at his web site, but not all. I know from what my customers have told me after comparison shopping.

Paul.... :) :wink:
