Welcome to my fun Loopy Soap tutorial! What in the world is Loopy Soap? Follow along and find out.
Utilizing our still-not-finalized, waiting-for-harder-plastic loaf molds for Melt and Pour and our ultra cool silicone baking tray mold, this soap is easy to make.
Clear Melt & Pour (I used our Bulk Base; you could use any of them)
Non-Bleeding Purple Colorant
Heavy Metal Gold
Fragrance (I used Red Lychee Tea)
Plastic Loaf Mold (I have extra of the weaker plastic molds. If you want one for $15, let me know)
Silicone Baking Tray
Pyrex (or heat safe glass)
Rubbing Alcohol in spritzer bottle
Step One: Melt 8 ounces of clear soap in the microwave.
Step Two: Color with non-bleeding purple. Pour into Silicone Baking Tray.
Optional: If using an old or dried out melt and pour, add 1 Tablespoon of Liquid Glycerin at Step Two to help with pliability.
Step Three: After soap has hardened (about 20 minutes), gently peel soap out of mold. Cut into strips. Start to fold the soap over and on itself.
Tip: Fold within 20 or 30 minutes of pouring. If you wait too long, the soap will form small cracks (like the soap in the photo). The cracks will also happen if you put the soap in the freezer to speed the hardening process. It’s important that you allow the soap to harden at room temperature.
Step Four: Carefully position the soap in the mold, checking to make sure the fit is perfect.

Erin~ I would suggest doing the curvy bits with melt and pour and embedding those pieces into the CP. If you end up trying it, make sure to let me know how it goes! Good luck!
Jill~ Hang in there for one more day for the final photos 🙂
Deelia~ It’s easier than you think and so much fun! You can totally do it!
Bathcake~ Ha ha, you’re right! It does look like ribbon candy. Now I want some (of course)!
Would this be possible with CP soap??? Would a thin layer be pliable enough after it cured for a bit? What do you think?
At this stage it looks like ribbon candy.
Cool. I never thought about trying to just curl the soaps like that. I will have to try that.
I can´t wait to see the final photos!
Eat Well~ Yahoo! I can’t wait to see what you and your boys come up with! I’ll keep my eyes peeled for some pictures!

Oooh, this looks like it’s going to be a hugely funky and fun soap! Can’t wait to see the final product.
BTW, This week, I’m planning to try and finish up some soaps with the boys that we’re making with materials that I won and bought from you/Bramble Berry. I hope to post photos by Sunday. 🙂
