About the Soap Shaper
The Soap Shaper tools are designed to help cold process soap makers consistently create extraordinary designs in soap. You can choose from a variety of shapes and sizes to give your soaps a unique accent, shape or design with minimal effort.
When you buy one of our Soap Shapers, you are purchasing our unique soap design (i.e. the creative idea that we came up with) and a tool so that you can make it yourself. An introduction letter is included in every order with directions, support and guidance – a learning tool – to help you achieve the design.
There are 2 styles of Soap Shaper:
The smooth-over Soap Shaper for use with loaf and slab molds
The pull-through Soap Shaper for use with column molds
Soap Shapers are made from environmentally friendly and durable PLA (Polylactic Acid) which is derived from crops such as corn and sugarcane. PLA is a renewable and biodegradable material. To clean your Soap Shaper, HAND WASH ONLY with lukewarm water and soap. Towel- or air-dry. Soap Shapers are NOT dishwasher safe. PLA is a heat sensitive and exposure to heat may cause melting and/or warping.
Due to the nature of the Melt & Pour soap making process (i.e. the heat required and speed at which it hardens) we DO NOT recommend using our Soap Shaper tools with M&P as they will likely get damaged.
How to Use The Soap Shaper
To use the smooth-over Soap Shapers (for loaf or slab molds), simply smooth or drag the shaped edge across the top of a semi-firm layer of cold process soap. Aim for the consistency of your soap to mimic creamed butter. The flat edge can be used to create perfectly straight lines or layers. The smooth-over Soap Shaper is currently available in two widths to work with common soap mold sizes. They can also be custom ordered to fit the exact width and height of your custom loaf mold.
To use the pull-through Soap Shaper (for column molds), attach the design plate to the stainless steel stem, fixing it into place with the two stainless steel bolts supplied. Place the Soap Shaper with the design plate down into the column mold. In this position the stainless steel stem will be facing up and out of the mold. Fill the mold with alternating pours of cold process soap batter at light trace, ideally using 2-3 different colours. A funnel can be used to assist with pouring and centring each pour. Once the mold is filled to the desired level, slowly and gently pull the Soap Shaper up through the mold by the stainless steel stem.
