As promised in the KVOS post, here are instructions for making Celebration Soap. I’ll post photos and a description of the final Vocation Vacation day (including the amazing exploding microwave mess) tomorrow.
This is a simple project, suitable for children and soapmakers of all skill levels. You’ll need the following supplies to make Celebration Soap:
clear melt and pour
white melt and pour
(non-bleeding) blue liquid pigment
Champagne fragrance oil
Milky Way Oval Mold
Rubber Star Mold
Rubbing Alcohol in a spritzer bottle
Part One – Make the Stars
1. Melt 4 ounces white melt and pour soap in the microwave
2. Add 2 drops of non-bleeding blue color
3. Stir well.
4. Pour into Molds
5. Spritz with alcohol (to break up bubbles)
6. Wait 45 minutes before popping out stars
1. Melt 14 ounces of clear melt and pour soap in the microwave
2. Add 1/2 teaspoon of silver glitter
3. Stir Well
4. Keep stirring.
5. Stop stirring for 30 seconds. Observe the glitter. If it is sinking to the bottom of your glass, keep stirring. The goal is to suspend the glitter. This requires the soap to be of a medium viscosity, dense enough to support the large particles of sparkle.
6. Add .3-.5 ounces of Champagne fragrance
7. Carefully lay the stars down on the bottom of the mold.
8. Pour in clear silver glitter soap, over the stars.
9. Spray a finishing spritz of rubbing alcohol on the soap to ensure that all bubbles are dissipated.
