learn more about molding and casting your own pagan soaps and chocolates

Our sites online store is loaded with Pagan related chocolate and soap molds. We are here to help you gain the maximum benefit from using our specialty molds.

Making Melt and Pour Soaps:

Making soaps is one of the easiest things you can do. You do not need any specialized equipment to cast your own soaps using our soap molds.

The material we use to make our soap molds is LDPE which is a durable and flexible plastic. We use 1/16 inch thickness material to make our original Pagan soap molds with.

You can find melt and pour soap bases in almost all major craft stores. You can also order it online from many places. Do some shopping around, and make sure to check out the places online and be careful of who you order from.

Simply melt the soap base as instructed with the soap you purchased and place your soap molds on a level surface. Once melted, you can add coloring and other materials to the liquid soap and simply pour it into the molds. We like to use ingredients like natural herbs, tea, oats and honey, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, vanilla, powdered up rosemary, and other things that are healthy. We avoid any artificial fragrances and colorings in our soaps. We even like to make soaps with finely ground coffee, a small amount of liquid chocolate, and use natural colorings derived from edible plants.

Let the soaps cool in the molds, chill them in the refrigerator, and press them out of the molds. It really is that simple.

Making Chocolates:

Place a layer of wax paper on the table you will be using to make your chocolates. The easiest chocolate to use are chocolate coatings that can be found in major craft stores, some big box stores depending on the season and most grocery stores in the baking isle. We like to use a simple double boiler on the kitchen stove.

Put the chocolate coating in the pan and place the pan in the double boiler with enough water to make contact with the bottom of the pan filled with chocolate. When the water heats up enough, it will begin to melt the chocolate. Low heat works best. Stir the chocolate until it is all melted.

Place the molds on the wax paper and spoon the chocolate into the molds. Pick up the molds and lightly slap them down to the table to settle the air out of the detail in the molds. You might want to do this a few times to get a bubble free surface in your castings.

After they have cooled for a few minutes, put the molds filled with chocolate on a cookie sheet or flat bottom pan and put them in the refrigerator for a few minutes. DO NOT put them in the freezer. Taking them out of a freezer will make them attract water out of the air and water and chocolate do not mix.

If you have to level the molds off a little from over filling, simply use the back of a knife or straight edge and scrape off the chocolate on the molds and tap them to the table again to get a nice level back on the castings. Any chocolate that lands on the wax paper can be put back in the pot to re melt once it has cooled and hardened. When the chocolates are cooled, you can simply put a little bit of thumb pressure on the face surface of the molds and push on them a little to release them. Make sure to keep them close to your working surface so they don't fall out and break. Wrap them in clear cello bags, or use them as place settings or box them as you wish. Look on the Internet for a ton of ideas on how to turn our chocolate castings in to fantastic and tasty treats!
