I do it somewhat differently. I made template box that fits exactly in my mold. I sort of gift wrap half of this box. And then the lining fits perfectly in my mold. It's hard to explain. Here's a site that shows in pictures : lining a mold.
Hey Faithy - A BIG thanks - that is a really helpful tutorial! I once tried lining with WP and gave up because I could not figure it out! LOL - I will have to give it another go --- and find my quilting ruler too!
The only down side to covering half of the outside of your box with paper (gift wrap style) is that you now have outside measurments which is larger than inside measurments. And it will be a little to large and hard to fit inside the space inside the mold.
But each to His/Her own way of doing it. I just wanted to offer others another option.
Faithy, what a great tutorial. You taught this old dog something new. By the way, how is your RTCP soap doing. I tried it and I think it turned out. It was pretty soft and I probably should have let it sit for awhile longer before taking it out of the mold.
I used Mocha Cappucinno FO. Of course it is getting very dark. That is only the third time I ever added a scent. When I asked my husband and daughter what they thought of the scent, my husband just turned up his nose and my daughter thought that maaayyybe it smelled like chocolate.
Oh well, probably won't buy that one again. I am getting a big order from New Directions Aromatics Canada tomorrow. I bought alot of little bottles of Fo's and EO's to try. My first time.
