In this video we test our latest prototype, the spiral shaped unicorn horn and icicle mold. This test includes us pouring eight unicorn horns, as well as four icicles, in a single mold! It also highlights the release properties of MightyMolds, as each bar of soap releases effortlessly from the mold, including the glitter we used to decorate the soap prior to pouring.

We’re doubling up on the prototypes this week with our second prototype release within the hour! Here is our brand new bar soap mold, equipped with enough Mighty Multipliers to pour a whopping 15 bars of soap in a single mold!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This mold features a curved and contoured bar shape, that would normally only be achieved by “gluing” two halves together. This mold creates solid, contoured bars in a single pour!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Beyond that, this prototype features so many Mighty Multipliers, you can pour 15 bars at a time, in a single mold. Achieve loaf mold numbers using bar mold methods!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Make sure you tune for the unmolding of this one – there will be a mountain of soap on the table!

Our latest prototype test is a good one – unicorn horns! This is a great shape for both candles and soap, that allows you to really be creative and have some fun with your products. This mold includes two Multipliers, allowing you to pour 4, 8, or 12 horns at a time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This shape also allows for multiple uses. Depending on the bases and accompanying decorations you choose, this mold can make candles or soaps similar to unicorn horns, seashells, icicles, and basically anything else you can come up with for a spiral shape!

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’ve already got soap setting in this one, so be sure to check back in soon for the unmolding video!

MightyMolds will be at SoapCon ’17 hosted in Mt. Sterling, KY. This is a spectacular event, and a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase our latest prototypes, and get our idea out there in front of real soaping professionals. We’ll be doing product demonstrations, talking to people about their dream molds, and even accepting some pre-orders for working prototypes!

In our latest video update, we test our new loaf mold prototype, a triply cavity “Mini-Bread” loaf mold. This mold allows you to pour 1, 2, or 3 loaves at a time, and they are shaped like miniature loaves of bread. Each cavity holds approximately two pounds of soap.

Prototype 5: Loaf Molds Anyone?!

This is where it gets real, folks! The newest prototype is a triple cavity “Mini-Bread” loaf mold that allows you to pour one, two, or three loaves at a time! This prototype highlights the unprecedented functionality of MightyMolds. Traditional loaf molds are two-dimensional and often times, a real pain to work with. Wooden molds with flimsy silicone insert liners. Plastic molds with removable parts, screws, bolts, and headaches. MightyMolds change all of that.

 

 

 

The loaf mold we have created is a true three-dimensional shape, with curved edges and corners. When unmolded, these loaves will look like real, traditional loaves of bread with the mushroom top. We left the ends flat simply to facilitate cutting. Who wants unusable soap loaf caps?! Beyond this, the mold is a two-piece design, allowing for truly effortless unmolding.

 

 

 

 

 

This mold is also completely modular, meaning it can be broken down into a single mold, or more pieces can be added until you are pouring three loaves at a time. Each cavity holds approximately two pounds of soap, and the completely open pour area still allows for swirling, inserts, piping, and any other customization you may want to apply to your soap.

We’re back with our third prototype test! This time we test our latest prototype, a 12 taper candle mold. By using a Mighty Mold with two Mighty Multipliers, we have been able to pour 12 taper candles in a single candle mold. Beyond that – they unmold easier than any taper candle mold seen before! Check out this video!

We’re back with our fourth prototype, the world’s first fully modular silicone candle mold. This prototype features two caps, and two Mighty Multipliers, turning a four-taper candle mold into a twelve-taper candle mold. Where previously each candle would require it’s own mold, and quite a bit of work to wick, this mold allows you to pour twelve candles at a time, and wicking is a breeze.

 

We’ve used our color testing in this latest prototype to showcase how the different layers and parts of a Mighty Mold come together to form one modular mold. Here we have the caps shown in red and blue, while the Multiplier pieces are colored white.  Additionally, this prototype marks our departure from the “nut-style” registry key system, to our own independently designed registry system. Our prototypes now make use of a tongue-and-groove locking system that keeps layers held tightly together, while creating a barrier between each casting subject that helps prevent leakage and seepage between subjects.

 

 

Be sure to check back in soon for our next video update, where we will use the latest prototype to pour twelve taper candles at one time! Wait until you see how easy they unmold!

With our latest prototype complete, the time came for us to test the functionality of our newest design. In this video, our first of many video updates, you can watch as we go through the process of pouring soap with a MightyMold. Thankfully, our latest design passed all tests with flying colors, and we were able to successfully pour four bars of soap using one silicone soap mold.

Prototype 3: The World’s First Modular Silicone Soap Mold!

After over a month full of prototyping, testing, and revisions, we were finally ready to try another attempt at a fully-functioning MightyMold. We learned a lot from our previous attempt, which allowed us to fine tune our processes and solve some problems that had been plaguing the design.

 

Our last attempt saw the use of a cardboard mold box, which most certainly did not happen again. Opting for a smaller gauge plastic, we were able to quickly fashion a workable box for this prototype. The thinner plastic was definitely easier to work with, but it also didn’t hold up to the silicone quite as well. It did serve its purpose however. After the box was assembled, we poured a clay bed down so that we could create the external connectors.

 

This attempt also featured the introduction of connector templates, a departure from our previous process, which was basically just free handing them. Creating these templates proved to be a bit of a challenge, but they were absolutely imperative to creating uniform, consistent connectors across multiple layers of silicone. Unfortunately we hadn’t fully learned our lesson with the cardboard, and used that as the first template medium. Removing it was not a clean process. We fashioned pour spouts from clay, and used some existing bars of soap that we had made for the casting subjects.

 

 

For the second layer template we used leftover plastic material from the box construction, and that worked much better. Not only did it hold the soap and the connectors in place more firmly, it also released from the silicone easily and cleanly.

 

 

 

Once the second template was removed, we poured the last layer of silicone, and hoped for the best. Our last attempt hadn’t gone smoothly, so we were hoping that this go around would prove more successful.

 

When it came time to remove the mold from the box, we were thankful that we switched back to plastic. Without cardboard peeling off and mucking everything up, the whole process went a lot  smoother. The mold was removed and separated, and the casting subjects were extracted. We were left with a pretty beautiful mold.

 

 

Everything seemed to fall into place with this mold. Both of the caps came out well, and multiplier was far better than our previous attempt. We increased the thickness, and it paid off with a sturdy, complete interior multiplier that does exactly what it should do. We couldn’t be happier with this result, and hope everything shares our excitement with the progress we’ve made thus far. Please be sure to like and share the page, and keep checking in often because our next post will be our first video update, where we will actually test this latest prototype by pouring four bars of soap!
