Make Faux Funnel Pour Soap ~ Soap Queen TV Video

Faux Funnel Pour Cold Process Soap

In this episode of Soap Queen TV, I show how easy the Faux Funnel pour technique is. But first let’s talk about the name. We call it the Faux Funnel pour because it looks like the funnel pour technique, but you don’t use a funnel! The result is that the layers are a little less even. I think it gives the soap a beautifully organic look and when you cut the soap every slice is a surprise.

SAFETY FIRST: Suit up for safe handling practices! That means goggles, gloves and long sleeves. Make sure kids, pets, and other distractions and tripping hazards are out of the house or don’t have access to your soaping space. Always soap in a well-ventilated area.

    It kind of reminds me of play-doh ice cream :) Looks really cool can’t wait to try it out!

      Hi Andrea!

    Groovy! I was just the other day asking customer service what’s the point of using a funnel, why not just pour? I’m so glad you demonstrated this mold too – now I totally have to have it :-) Pringles cans sound good in theory, but this is so much better!

  3. I want to make a soap like this this weekend! I do love the look of those rounds and the way each bar is unique is cool. Thanks for the video! It really helps to get to see the pour.

      Hi Margaret!

      I agree, the round shape gives this soap such a unique look! I hope you give it a try, it’s a lot of fun! If you end up making it this weekend, we would love to see photos on our Facebook Page :)

    Can you do this technique with melt and pour?

    • Amanda says:

      Hi Bernadette!

      You could certainly do something similar, although because melt and pour cools much quicker, you may not get the same design as with cold process. My guess is that you would get more layers, because the soap that you pour first would quickly cool. That being said, it could still end up looking really fun! :)

    Is sweet almond the same thing as the “sweet oil” you find next to the castor oil in pharmacies?

    I made this recipe last week and waited 4 days to un mold it. Only difference I did was I used different colors. I also did an in the post swirl and poured it in the 2pound mold loaf with silicone liner. It came out VERY SOFT. Any ideas on what I might have done wrong. It’s been out of the mold for a few days now and it’s still soft where I can pti my finger into it. :( thanks for the help.

      Hi Tabitha!

      This recipe has a lot of soft oils, so it can take a little longer to harden. It should get harder as it cures. :)

      You may also like to add Sodium Lactate. It helps make a harder bar of soap and allows you to unmold your soap earlier. To use it, add 1 tsp. per pound of oils to your cooler lye water.
