Kat from Bramble Berry’s retail store, Otion, was inspired to make this honeycomb soap technique using bubble wrap. Using bubble wrap has long been a staple in the cold process soapmaking world but in melt and pour, it’s just catching on. This soap is earthy, eye-catching, easy and a great way to reuse your packaging! This project can be made by the most novice of soap makers and all you have to do is line your mold with bubble wrap to get this cool effect. Be sure to check out Otion’s blog for more creative, soaping inspiration!

PREP: Wash your bubble wrap with warm soap and water and let it dry before making your soap.
ONE: Cut your bubble wrap into squares that fit in the cavity and line your mold.
TWO: Melt the soap base and stir in color (just the yellow and honeyed beige) and fragrance. Pour into lined mold.
THREE: Let harden, remove soap from mold and peel back bubble wrap to reveal the textured surface.
FOUR (optional): Tap a mini scoop of Sparkle Gold Mica onto a paper towel and rub it lightly across the surface to create shine that reflects in the light, enhancing the pattern.
PS – This soap would be scrumptious with our Honey Ale fragrance as well.
