I promised a friend ages ago I'd make him a Fight Club soap, except that when I finally found the motivation, surprise ! The "mold" I found on the web wasn't actually a mold but an actual soap, I don't even know what happened in my head when I made the mistake. I searched for hours after that, only to find out that 20th Century Fox had made every homemade mold disappear from Etsy and similar websites.
So, I PROMISED. Too bad. Here is my DIY mold, and as you will see... that's a makeshift job. But it turned out not so bad, I hope you'll like it !
The sides aren't straight, it's a bit "shiny" because of the gelatin, but it could be worse =)
The logo has to be in embossed letters, so the mold is made in imprint.
12 layers of cardboard glued together. The cutter gave me blisters on my fingers -_- At first, I tried to cut into a thicker piece of cardboard, but I couldn't cut well the details and difficult parts, so I gave up.
gelatin + sugar
Makeshift job, I told you. This was a huge mess, I lost half of the batch... this was a BAD idea.
I can't wait to give my friend his gift, he seemed really excited when I showed him the pictures.
And if you guys have a better idea to make that kind of project, please oh please, tell me everything
Thanks for watching !
PS : English isn't my mothertongue and I used some specific words in this post, I hope I picked the right ones ! I'm sorry if you had trouble with some of my sentences, I do my best to get better
