Strawberry Wax Tart Molds

11 oz. White Melt & Pour

11 mL diluted Bright Cherry Lab Color

7 mL Strawberry Fragrance Oil

 ONE: Cut the White Melt and Pour base into uniform chunks (about 1″ or smaller) and melt in a heat-safe container on 30 second bursts in the microwave, stirring between bursts. When it’s fully melted, add fragrance oil and stir until combined.

TWO: Add the diluted Bright Cherry LabColor and stir until fully mixed in.

THREE: Pour the soap into the molds, leaving just a teeny bit of room in each cavity for ease in unmolding. Spritz each of the cavities with Isopropyl (Rubbing) Alcohol and allow to fully harden.

FOUR: After about 3-4 hours, unmold the soap and wrap using an air-tight method (I used plastic wrap using the wrapping technique from this SoapQueen.TV video). Enjoy!

    I love the strawberry fragrance oil, and mold is adorable. I have definitely caught the melt and pour bug. I see a new mold in my future!

    I love these molds but I don’t use melt and pour. The one time I tried to use a similar mold, I couldn’t get the soap out. I tried everything, heating it, freezing it, banging it — I ended up throwing it away. Is there a cold process recipe that will work in these type of molds?

    • Hi Bonnie!

      You can actually use these molds for wax tarts, M&P and cold process soaps and I don’t see a reason why any recipe wouldn’t be able to be used in the molds. That being said, the harder plastic molds are a little trickier to unmold, but it can be done.

      Once your soap or wax tart has harden in the mold, carefully push the sides away from your product until it lets it loose. Then, you should just be able to push firmly with the palm of your hand on the other side of the mold and it should come right out. You can also coat your harder plastic molds with Cyclomethicone or Mineral Oil to make it easier to pop them out.

      I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions. =)

      Happy Soaping!

    Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some help
    from an established blog. Is it hard to set up
    your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m
    thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Cheers

    • Good morning!

      If you are just starting out blogging, I’d definitely suggest checking out WordPress, Blogger or Tumblr. These are three blogging platforms that will make it easy for your to post your blog and get it out to your readers! It really isn’t too hard to set up a blog, and all three of those platforms actually have tutorials that can walk you right through it. I hope this helps. Good luck! =)
