Step 7: Fill another coffee cup or heat safe Pyrex with soap.Melt the soap and add color (to preference) and fragrance.
Step 8:Let melted soap cool so that it is no longer steaming and won’t burn your finger (if you were to dip your finger in the glass). The goal is to have the soap cool enough to not melt the white pinwheel swirls.Spray the four pieces of white soap in the round mold with rubbing alcohol and pour the remaining colored soap into the mold, over the pinwheel soap cut outs.The rubbing alcohol ensures that the pieces will adhere nicely to your overpour.
Step 9: Place mold back into the freezer for roughly 25 minutes if you’re impatient and willing to get condensation on your soaps. If you want to ensure that you don’t get glycerin dew on your soaps, resist the urge to hurry the process and wait 3 hours before gently popping your soaps out.
Step 10: Enjoy!
While these aren’t Pinwheel soaps, I think this type of wrapping would be phenomenal for the Pinwheel Soap Project.
I almost forgot to mention! I used the M&P loaf (the one that was supposed to be not quite perfect yet) for the first time a couple days ago … the loaf came out picture perfect, no bowing at all.
I would have never thought of a tupperware! Thank you!! 🙂
Hi BathCake –
You can actually find quite a decent mold in the Tupperware food section of the grocery store and use one of those. It’s not ideal but the company that used to make the domes went out of business! =(
Lori from Martin Creative, if you’re out there, I’d love to buy the rights to some of those molds … =)
Thank you so so much for doing this tutorial!! I can’t wait to try them! (and rumor has it that I’m getting a “real” camera for my first wedding anniversary…so hopefully I can even post great pics of them)
Does BB have a 4oz dome mold?? I wanted to try the poof soaps from teach soap as well, but I’m not seeing a 4oz dome, just a 1.8 oz dome… if BB doesn’t have that 4oz mold, do you have a mold you can suggest for that project??
🙂 Thank you again!!
