Easter Basket Worthy Soaps

  • Difficulty:Beginner
  • Time:30 minutes
  • Yields:4 soaps

Ingredients

1/2 tsp. Lip Safe Yellow Mica (for 4 eggs)

.4 oz Passionfruit Papaya Fragrance Oil

3 oz Clear Soap Base

Clean Up Tool

Syringe

ONE: Melt 2-3 ounces of the white soap base in the microwave on 30 second bursts.

TWO: Use the syringe tool to fill in the crevices of the egg mold. Because the top of the egg mold is a slightly rounded, you’ll need to fill in the crevices in 2-3 different rounds. First, fill in the center, let it cool. Then fill in the other sides by tilting the mold. You should be able to work on all the cavities at once with this technique. It takes a bit of patience but it’s worth it!

THREE: Once you’ve filled in the crevices, the clean up tool or mini spatula will be your best friend. Chances are you will have “colored outside of the lines” (if you didn’t you’re an amazing talent). Use the soapy tools to scrape off the extra soap. You can use a butter knife in a pinch but they’re not as easy to use as the clean up tool or mini spatula.

Hint: Step four is a little extra work in the beginning but worth the efforts for a flawless egg in the end.

Is that a unicorn in the background?

FOUR: Once you’ve cleaned up all of the eggs, melt 2-3 ounces of clear soap base and let it cool to 120-130 degrees. Doing one egg cavity at a time, spritz the white soap with rubbing alcohol and pour about 1 tablespoon of soap into one cavity. Tilt the mold and swirl the clear soap around in the mold so it leaves a coating around the entire egg. Then quickly sprinkle in the glitter stars so they stick to the soap, covering the entire egg.

I had a cup handy do dump out excess soap if needed.

FIVE: Melt 13-14 ounces of white soap base in the microwave on 30 second bursts until it’s completely melted. Stir in 12 ml of fragrance oil (about .4 ounces) and your colorant of choice for a Springy Easter pastel. Mix. Mix. Mix.

SIX: When the soap base has cooled enough to pour (between 120 and 130 degrees), spritz the glittered clear layer of soap with rubbing alcohol and fill the egg all the way up. Spritz with rubbing alcohol to get rid of any extra bubbles.

SEVEN: Let the soap cool for 4-6 hours and unmold. Then they’re ready for their Easter baskets debut.

    What is the best way to unmold the easter egg soap?

    • The best way to unmold the Easter Egg soap is to press firmly in the center of the mold and press until you see that the airlock has been released. Then press around the edges until it pops out. If you are having problems unmolding, you can stick it in the freezer for about five minutes.

    This mold is a night mare! I tried everything to unmold my soap nothing worked even my Sister my husband and brother-in-law tried!
    The mold is just to hardand thick for anyone to be able to press on and expect it to pop out!
    We beat on the mold slammed it on the counter tops about 100 times one person held it up while one pushed on the top and beat on it with a butter knife handle!
    My brother in law gave up and said he would be back with a jack hammer later to get them out!
    When I finally got them out I decided to test it one more time only 1 cavity this time Im not totaly dumb! HA
    With advise from other soapers I tried coating the mold with oil needless to say once again the soap is stuck in my mold!!!
    Not to mention I bought the kit and didnt get the soap base or the star glitter! :/
    I have made lots of soap and never had such a hard time with a mold.

    • Hi Kat!

      I’m so sorry to hear you are having such a frustrating time with this mold. I know how frustrating it can be, as I’ve had this happen to me a couple of times before.

      With your missing items, we ask that you contact customer service right away so they will be able to get that fixed and settled for you. You can reach them by e-mail at info(at)brambleberry(dot)com or by phone 360-734-8278. Currently our phones are down because of a power outage but they should be back up later today!

      The easiest way that we have found to unmold from the harder plastic molds is to let the soap fully harden and then press firmly with the palm of our hand on the back on it. If it doesn’t pop out, give it a few minutes (10-15) in the freezer and that should help to loosen it up a bit.

      -Becky with Bramble Berry

      P.S. Keep me updated on the freezer trick!

    Yeah I tried the Feezer 2 times 10 minutes the first time 20 the second time!
    As far as being fully hardened they sat over night
    I had covered them that evening because I started the project to late! Lol
    Im not sure why I thought it was a good Idea to try this again and again but I did tried something different all 3 times still always had the same outcome!!
    as far as the missing items I got that figured out that was not anyones fault but my own for not double checking my cart because I had to refresh my page a few times I ALWAYS have trouble with the Brambleberry site not sure why! But I went through deleted emails and found my confirmation and the base was not there and the star glitter said it was discontinued.

    • Hi Kat!

      I’m so sorry about the mold giving you so much trouble, did you add anything else to the soap base? In our experience, adding something extra (other than color and fragrance) to the melt and pour bases can make the lather decrease and consistency change.

      If you are having trouble with our website, I would suggest clearing the cache on your internet browser and restarting it. That should help you out and make it run a little better for you. =)
