    I am fine with freezer paper too. Only thing different that I add is craft foam at the ends of the log mold and I use a bit of shortening (crisco) to make the wooden sides of the mold hold the paper better. Using the craft mold means I only have one sheet of paper, 22" long to cut. I place the foam at both ends, insert the paper, smooth flat on the bottom, crease at the corners and up at the top. The shortening keeps it from coming away from the sides of the molds. If there's a bit of space between the craft mold and the paper I don't worry about it. The soap mixture will fill it in. Easy Peasy..

    Thank you! I have been doing the “other YouTube “ way and cutting the other side. This makes more sense. I’m off to make to make my template! ( also a time saver as I am not puttin the paper in and out multiple times)

    I remember not being able to fold the paper...

    Gentleman Jim was my tutor...

    I used to pay the kids to wrap Christmas presents too - no more!

    Thank you very much for the video. I see a stick perhaps in the beginners section?

    Craft foam? Are you comfortable sharing what type? Seems like a huge process improvement. :)

    @Misschief, Thank you, thank you, thank you, I would never have thought of making a template, and they work like a hot darn.

    I didn't buy this brand but here's an example of what I mean when I say craft foam https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004LOHW6G/?tag=skimlinks_replacement-20 I bought a big wide role originally because I wanted to only use the foam to line my molds (and you can) by cutting out each piece and adhering it to the wooden sides with Crisco. Using the foam will decrease the size of your bars by a little bit which is why I switched to just using it on the ends of my log molds.

    Is that Gentleman Jim the tailor on YouTube or is there someone on here with the username of Gentleman Jim?


    I am a bit confused, but that is not hard, are you saying you don't use any paper, just the foam or are you using foam and then paper? Could you post a photo or something as my head is just not getting it.

    I've never seen the red freezer (or butcher) paper here. I can find freezer paper at all my local grocery stores and the only kind I see here is the brown (kraft) paper. I would think that, as long as it has one shiny side, it will be fine.

    Stuck in my head
    I get mine at the grocery store. I use the white kind that has a shiny surface on one side and matte surface on the other. I've never seen "red" freezer paper, so have no idea if it would work. Butcher paper would also work. (it's basically the same thing) Don't use wax paper as the wax melts and sticks to the soap.
