Has anybody made their own, the sort that makes several bars at once?
I don't know if it's worth it to diy or order from a place like this:

Thanks for any advice you've got! Smiley

Hmm, I have a kit to make my own mold but I think it's only enough to make one bar of soap sized mold. That site looks really cool though! Kinda scares me that I couldn't find any prices though, if I have to ask it's probably more than I could afford Cheesy Is there something special you want on a mold? There are ready made silicon molds in all kinds of designs found elsewhere, if you don't want something really specific (family crest or something Grin) you might want to look around before going the custom made route.

I saw some beautiful soaps with humpback whales on them and others with a lovely guitar. I thought it would be great to do something unique, for me it would probably have to be monkey related, lol.

After looking at that site, I was reminded of another site that might suit you better.  http://www.smooth-on.com/

When I'm working on soap, I'm either knitting, crocheting, or working on my castle crafts.  With the castle crafts, you can buy molds to get the individual bricks to build your own castle scenes.  Several members over there suggest going to Smooth-On to get the silicone needed to make custom molds.  Try them for the silicone for the molds, then make your desired shapes using Polymer clay.  One thing that was mentioned-- don't use Play-dough to make the masters of your soap-- it likes to react to the silicone during the molding process.
