Exclusive Sneak Peak!
This is Soapylove’s newest project. A special thanks to Debbie Chialtas for letting us share this fun project the day that her book hits the shelves!
Buy your copy now.Here’s what you’ll need:
We just eyeballed the measurements
(trying not to laugh)

Clear Melt and pour
White Melt and pour
Cappucino Mica or Blue Green Mica
(or your favorite eye color)
Liquid Black Colorant
Pearberry Fragrance Oil
Sphere Mold

 

Step One: Melt 1 ounce of clear melt and pour and add 1-2 drops of liquid black colorant. Pour a dime sized drop into bottom half of the sphere mold (we used a little dropper). Spritz to get rid of the air bubbles and let cool.
Step Two: Melt 2-3 ounces of clear melt and pour soap and add the Cappuccino or Blue Green Mica (or whatever color you want your corneas to be). Spritz the first layer of soap before pouring your second colored layer. Pour to the size of a quarter, spritz with alcohol and let cool.
Step Three (crossing T’s and dotting the Eye’s): Now it’s time to add your fragrance of choice and pour the last layer. Spray your soap with rubbing alcohol and put the top half of the mold back on and secure it rightly with a rubber band on each end. Melt about 3-4 ounces of white soap base and add your fragrance oil. Pour the soap through the tiny holes in the mold or use a syringe if necessary (we used the syringe from PJ’s Soap Kit). If the holes are too small for your liking, you can drill them out with a drill to widen them.

Tip: We recommend using a non-discoloring fragrance (we chose Pearberry) but you can always use vanilla color stabilizer if you want to use a vanilla type fragrance. See Soap Queen TV on how to use Vanilla Color Stabilizer.Check out other Soaplove projects hereor shop Soapylove’s Ezines here.

    I made some larger half-dome eyes last weekend, but I can't WAIT to try the little ones! Hopefully my mold will be here soon! ^_^

    I love this idea! Perfect timing with Halloween just around the corner. Where can I find the mold?

  3. Brigette says

    I love these and am so excited about doing them. Will be getting my order in this weekend for the mold.

    Fantastic project, just when a friend was wondering what she's gonna pass out as party favors for her Halloween bash this year. She's picking up the mold and the soap base and I'm making her a ton of these. (Isn't barter wonderful!) :-) Really can't wait to play!

    Woohoo…I've had that book in my Amazon cart for a while now! These are the spookiest eyeballs…love them!

    FUN!!! My students will love these! (But did you know the colored part of your eye is the "isis", not the "cornea"? :-)

  7. France says

    Isn't it the "iris" (as opposed to "isis"?) The cornea (which I thought was more at the back of the eye myself) is "Clear front eye tissue that covers iris and pupil and admits light." They do say we learn something new every day!!!
    I *heart* your blog A-M!!!

    T.A.- Yes, the soap will hold up with CP. But, you'll want to drill the holes larger so that the soap can be easily filled into themol.d.

    Barkley's Mom & France – Yikes! I'll have to check that out. High school biology lab homework coming right up. =)

    I ordered these molds and made the eyeballs. Not only were they so simple to make, they were a huge hit at a local harvest fair. Highly recommend these.

    Aw, thanks for popping back in to let us know that the project turned out well, Ann. Yipppeee! =) I am glad you like the mold and the idea as much as we did!
