Directions

 

Melt your soap, add color and scent according to the package directions, and then pour it into the mold. Spray the top with rubbing alcohol to get rid of any excess bubbles. If you overfill it simply scrape the excess off with a flat spatula and spray again with rubbing alcohol. Place the mold into the refrigerator until it is set. Or let it set at room temperature for at least a few hours.

 

De-molding:

Pop the piece out by gently holding the mold with your thumbs on top and fingers on the bottom of the mold and flexing it out and up.

 

Tips

 

  • Always be sure to use the right colors and scents for soap making. These are readily available at craft stores.
  • If you want to layer colors, you can do that by pouring your first color, and then spritz it with rubbing alcohol before pouring the next color. This will create a bond between the layers. This is wonderful for adding dimension to flowers. 
  • If you are melting your soap in the microwave cover the glass measuring cup with saran wrap to keep the moisture from escaping. Remove the saran carefully to avoid steam.
  • Careful with the color because to much can end up staining hands later.
  • If you want to use small soap piece(s) as an embed to place inside another soap, do not put the mold in the refrigerator to set, allow it to set at room temperature.
  • To embed; follow the above directions and pour the soap into the mold, not all the way to the top because you will be embedding the soap piece(s) in it. Spray piece(s) with rubbing alcohol and place it inside the mold, then finish filling it with the melted soap. Be sure that your soap is not to hot that you can’t touch it, if it is steaming it is to hot, stir it and wait for it to cool a little.
  • Work Quickly! Soap sets fast; you may need to microwave it in short bursts to thin it again, if it starts to set.
  • Using a glass measuring cup to microwave melt and pour soap works best for pouring.
