This is what you want. It's durable and the no-melt stands up to CPOP if you need. Cut 5 pieces out of the 12 x 18 as efficiently as is practical according to the size of your mold. I use one piece of tape at the top edge of the 4 side-liners and drop in the bottom piece. Measure and cut carefully one time, wash or at least rinse well between uses, and enjoy your soaping.I know someone mentioned somewhere they use mylar as a liner. At least I think I remember that. Can anyone share their experience with it? What thickness, etc? Do you use 5 individual sheets?
Lee- you should have no trouble finding them if you go down the embroidery aisle. They are used in the making of custom quilting appliques: http://erinrussek.typepad.com/files/pattern-inside-page-1-web.pdfWhat are these used for in embroidery? Just in case I need to explain what I need at the craft store
I tried using a glue (don't remember what kind)ETA: I was curious if you were making new molds or just looking to line your existing molds. I think I am going to make a few of my own soon and figure I will take a material like this and laminate it to the surface of the wood before I cut my stock to shape.
This is the folded kind. I have also made a modified folded one I don't have a picture, but I folded the sides and bottom then cut 2 end pieces for a total 3 piece liner. It works nicely.Ok, wow. So you use this instead of paper or silicone to line wood molds? Can I please see pics?
New molds ... that's an interesting idea.ETA: I was curious if you were making new molds or just looking to line your existing molds.

You crafty ladies have all sorts of tricks ... and I don't know what you are talking about.If you have one of those scrapbooking craft cutter things that helps you to slice things in a straight line, it helps tremendously.
So when I make my molds and buy the sheets, I send them to Pepsi Girl to fold up. Check!This is the folded kind.
I don't see why they would not work - but they are flimsy and you'd want some way to hold them on the sides while you pour. The reason I think the mylar might be nice is because it's going to be semi-rigid and just take a dab of wax or tape to hold it. Fondant mats are another one I see sometimes mentioned.Would it work to use silicone pan liners cut into the correct sizes?
Yowser! O never would have have thought of the three all getting together to ruin your day. I think I'd probably go with a silicone glue.I tried using a glue (don't remember what kind)
And the soap melted the glue and the Mylar, chemical reaction I guess. So you might just be aware of that little fact.:shock:
The answer is 'yes' to both your questions.You crafty ladies have all sorts of tricks ... and I don't know what you are talking about.
I searched for a "scrapbooking craft cutter thing" but I am not sure I got what you mean. Help a poor dumb man out? Was it one of these?
I have a regular paper cutter (arm). Think that would work?

I found Mylar but it looks different from the stuff in this thread. It looks transparant and thinner, so not sure if that's the same stuff ..
Here is a link to the pan liners I have in mind http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hot-Flexibl...-Liner-Placemat-Table-Protector-/131372920393
