This Class Handout is a digital download. Once purchased, you will find the link to access your document on your MY ACCOUNT page.

Have you ever wanted a soap mold design that did not exist or find an object that would make a perfect soap shape but you don’t know how to mold it? This Class Handout will show you how to use 3 different forms of silicone to make 2 custom single-cavity soap molds and a silicone texture sheet.

Learn how to make:

Glove Molds (using brush-on silicone)
Cavity Molds (using liquid silicone)
Texture Sheets (using silicone putty)

This Class Handout provides thorough instructions on all of the projects, plus information on how to build a molding container, as well as a list of Erin’s recommended suppliers (so you know where to buy everything).
