This project is a build-on of the Tween concept that I posted this weekend. It is based on a simple embedding idea with the extra touch of making soapy clouds. I hope you enjoy it.
What you’ll need for our Airplane Flying in the Clouds soap:
Clear Melt & Pour Soap Base
Super Pearly White Mica
Large Rectangle Mold
Microwave safe container
Spritzer bottle of rubbing alcohol
Fragrance Oil (non discoloring works the best, so no vanillas)
Object to Embed (Example used is a child’s plastic airplane)
Step 1: Cut melt and pour soap into 1” cubes and put into microwave safe container (about 3 oz should be enough for one bar). Cover with saran wrap and microwave for 30 second intervals until soap is melted.
Step 2: Stir in the Fragrance Oil. Suggested usage rate is .25 ounces of fragrance per pound of soap. This equates to less than one dropperful for 3 ounces of soap.
Step 3: Set aside about 1/2 cup of clear base and add a pinch of Super Pearly White Mica for the “cloud” layers.
Step 4: Pour a small amount of your Super Pearly White base into your Rectangle Mold to resemble a thin layer of clouds. Make sure not the cover the entire bottom of the mold. Spritz with alcohol to get rid of any bubbles and let it cool slightly before adding the next layer.
Step 5: Pour a thin layer of clear on top of the white “clouds” to represent the clear air. Spray with alcohol and let cool slightly.
Check back tomorrow for the final reveal of our Airplane Flying in the Clouds!
