La Palma - Fabrication BTS

I created a custom soap prototype for
La Palma to be used on our photoshoot showcasing the design identity.

I've worked a lot with silicone molds in the past and in my opinion is the best way to create something with a "mass-produced" look in a fast way.

The bas-relief logo in the soap was a small  challenge but quickly figured out I could use a blank soap mold I had in inventory and glue the laser cut design to it.
The steps for that were, laser-cut the vector desing in 3mm plexi, using the negative as positioning guide and gluing the positive logo to the mold using ca glue. Cast a silicone blank (the first mold is damaged in this process) and make the final mold out of flexible silicone.

From this master mold you can cast
the soap in any material and make as many copies as necessary since the mold stays intact after every casting.

In this project we created 2 versions of the master mold.
