How to Make Unique Soap Molds, Trump Soap on a Rope

Soap Molds that you make yourself.

Experiment!  Today we are going to show you how to make a unique soap mold using a 3D printer and ComposiMold. We downloaded a design of the Bust of President Trump from Thingiverse that was designed by CU 3D and threeferIt took several tries to print before we were ready with our Master shape. To make the surface smoother than what you get with the 3D printer we washed the shape in acetone.

To make the soap mold: we hot glued the Trump Bust to the bottom of a cup and then sprayed it with Bubble Buster.

We melted the ComposiMold-Flex  Re-usable Mold Making Material  in the microwave for about 1 minute using a 40 oz. container to obtain enough melted molding material. This was poured over the master part.

The mold solidified in about 30 minutes in the freezer. The original part was extracted from the mold, and we now have a unique soap mold.

In this project, we are making a Soap on a rope, so a piece of rope is placed into the mold. The soap is melted in the microwave and then poured into the chilled ComposiMold Mold.

Be sure the soap is cool prior to pouring into the mold.

We then extract the soap from the mold by peeling the ComposiMold away from the soap and then pressing the shape out. If necessary, use scissors to cut a parting line.

While 3D printing the bust, we had a print that did not complete, which gave us another idea for
adding a sponge to the top of the bust. So here is another mold and soap we
made of President Trump. The mold making process is the same.

You will notice that the head was facing to opposite way in the mold because we wanted his head to be open when we poured in the soap.

The sponge is cut to fit the shape of his head.

We added a piece of rope to the sponge so it will stay on his head better.

We then poured in the melted soap and placed the sponge on to his head.

This mold was placed in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before pulling the soap out of the mold.

We carefully pulled the ComposiMold away from the soap, and we had our very own soap of the President of the United States.
