This video demonstrates a technique I shared with Mario Bosquez on Living today (a Martha Stewart Sirius radio program) . The whole crew loved it so much I thought I should share it with my Soap Queen TV viewers too!
I love this innovative and economical project. It’s a great way to make reusable seasonal designs out of plain soap molds – allowing you to change your designs without purchasing new molds.

Here’s what you’ll need:
16 oz. Clear melt & pour soap
4 oz White melt & pour soap
Unmounted rubber stamps (the clear ones seem to work best)
Liquid green oxide
Cranberry Fig fragrance
Melt & Pour tool kit
Basic Rectangle Mold
Your soaps turned out great! I love the stamps you found – what a great deal! And, you can still use them for stamping too =)

Anne Marie! I made these soaps today. I blogged about them so check and see how I did! Only three turned out, though. I also had my red layer too thick, I think.
I found my stamps on clearance at Hobby Lobby…a set of holiday stamps for the whole year…reg $20, I paid #3.50.
Thanks for the fun idea!
Thank you for this great idea!!! I'll be trying it soon.
Hi Tori – I got the stamps from a rubber stamping store. You could find them online at a stamping store, or at a bricks'n'mortar store in your town or a larger craft chain like Holly Lobby, Michaels or Joanns.

great tips! I saw Joannes has little sets of clear stamps for $1! They had Halloween, Thanksgiving and christmas available and each set has 3-4 stamps in it.
Where did you get the soap stamps from? I couldn't find them on your website. Did I just not look hard enough? Also, I don't suppose that gell window clings would work…
i did not know all those swirling tutorials existed! yippee!
this project is so lovely and thank you for posting it EARLY in the season. It would be nerve wracking to attempt this when under pressure! lol!
we all can't wait to try it out!
As always great!!! 🙂
Thanks for the hint Hardy Girl. I'll be sure to check it out.
Dakota, The swirling in the CP soaps will eventually come. In the meantime, there's this series of videos here:
That should give you a good start =)

Trying this now, I hope it turns out. I have teeny tiny small letter stamps. will have to try again with larger ones. great video, thanks for sharing!
fun! sounds like a rainy nw weekend project for me and the kids to enjoy. thanks!
I love how this makes a basic mold so much more versatile, and I love your color combination!! This was a really great video!

Hardy Girl says
Hi Anne-Marie! I love how easy this project is, can't wait to try it!
I was going through all of your posts and saw your post about the amazing wedding dances and thought you might like this one as well!
I'm so glad that everyone is liking this project – yay!
Brittany, the pink/red stamps tend to be more rough cut and don't stick as well but there is no reason you couldn't use them =)
I love the look of the 3 colors. The soaps look great. Thanks for another great project.

I LOVE this!
Wow! So pretty. It's really simple but looks amazing!
I can't wait to try this project. Is there a particular reason you prefer the clear stamps over the others?
I've done this project before when you blogged about it, but I only used 2 colors. The 3 colors really make a stunning soap. I can't wait to try!
