Designing & Hand Pouring Molds Since 2000


CUT / SLIT MOLDS
Cutting/Slitting Block Molds

If a silicone mold arrives with a cut or slit in it, don't worry, it is not broken—these are called block molds and these slits are put there to enable you to remove the piece from the mold. Most commonly these are the animals and "L" shaped items, such as a horse with the protruding head and ears. These molds for these types of pieces will have a jagged cut in the mold itself, this mold is not broken or torn either. This cut is put there to enable you to demold the soap from the mold. Otherwise you would not be able to get the piece out of the mold without this cut. Also, the more jagged the cut the better, it is less likely to show any seam. Rubber bands that I include with these types of molds hold the mold together for pouring. Items such as ears, wings etc. require a cut or slit. If the cuts/slits are there and you are still having a problem, then the cuts need to be made larger.


Slits/cuts DO NOT HURT THE MOLD. You can even cut all the way through a mold if you wish, rubber bands hold the mold together without leaking hot product.

Ears and noses and wings may need adjusting after you pull your piece from your mold.

When demolding an item from a cut mold, make sure you pull the silicone away from your item that is in the mold when you start to demold. Do this until you can actually see way deep into the mold as you pull the silicone away from your piece. This loosens the silicone from the rest of your item and makes demolding those ears easier.

With New Technology each Year & Advances in Silicone. I re-evaluate my silicone to ensure You are getting the BEST and State of the Art hand poured silicone Mold. My Silicone is formulated for Soap, Candle Making and casting Resin, Wax bases, Plaster.......etc. . If you would like to see a photograph of a Variety of some of my silicone molds in the silicone I use, please visit my "About" page in my etsy Shop at this link. Please Note the High Quality and Thick molds to make sure You can Count and Trust they will work perfectly for You.

Wicking

There are three ways to wick a candle silicone mold:
Wick Centering Device ~ No hole is needed in your mold.
For small candles (such as floaters) you can wick the candle after it has been taken from the mold. Using a hot round object – such as a wick pin, nail, or knitting needle – creates the hole for your wick. Be careful on this procedure as the hot object can cause you injury if you are not careful.
Insert a small sharp object directly through the bottom of the mold (from the inside of the mold to be sure the hole is centered). Some people use wick pins, nails, or knitting needles — anything that is small and sharp will usually do the trick. Silicone is a tight rubber and the small hole (if round) will usually seal itself without leaking wax. DON’T use a knife, it is flat (not round) and can start a tear in the silicone. Which over time, could be enlarged with use and leak wax.

Once the hole is made, you can use:
A wick pin ans then thread your wick through the mold.
You can use upholstery needles (they are sharp and have large eyes) or some people use a small household wire, bent in half.

Thread your wick in the instrument and pull through the hole in the bottom of the mold. The silicone will close tightly around the hole of the wick so you should not have any leaking of wax. Leave a wick tail extending beyond the outer shell of the mold. Attach a wick bar to the wick and place the bar on top of the mold. (Be sure it is centered and pulled tight to hold the wick centered.) Once your candle is dry, remove from the mold, pulling the excess wick through the hole in the mold and cut the trailing wick.

NOTE: If you are making a number of these candles, leave the wick trailing in the mold (already through the hole in the mold) it will save you from having to do this process all over again.

I hope I have answered all of your questions here. If not please feel free to email me anytime.
