As some of you know, we have been trying to develop a line of affordable 3D silicone molds for soap and candle makers for quite some time. Initially we did this out of necessity because we could not find any company that would create a *custom* mold for us at what we felt was a reasonable price ($1000 or less). There have been many obstacles to overcome, the most major one being the price of the silicone itself. For our purposes when buying silicone we are faced with two choices... Tin cure or Platinum cure. Tin cure molds do not have the same life-span as Platinum cure molds. And in our experience, have not performed as well, which is why we use Platinum cure silicone for our molds. The life-span of Tin cure molds is approximately 1 year. Platinum cure molds; depending on who you talk to, have a life-span of 10-30 years. As a result of using Platinum cure silicone our molds are pricey... and yes, we are aware of that. We have been struggling to solve this problem and in the short term have secured some silicone that will allow us to sell a limited amount of molds at a much better price (New pricing is in effect on our site now, MIGHTY MOLDS). In the long term it would help to know what the desirable price range is for this type of product, as we search for a more permanent solution. If you have time it would truly help and we would greatly appreciate your participation in the poll.
