Melt and Pour Tools *really* make a world of difference for Melt and Pour soap designs, especially intricate patterns like the Thanksgiving Mold.
Tip! I always keep warm boiling water on hand to rinse my syringe out in between each use.
Tip 2: I prepare ALL of my soap colors for these projects at once and then let them sit, covered, so I can work quickly.
Follow this same process for the Turkey Soap EXCEPT fill in the feather plume first. You can use the scraper/pick to scrape away any of the parts that spilled over. I used different gradients of yellow to make it look more varied and interesting.
Ha! Not at all. I either work (like now – I’m reviewing resumes, signing Christmas checks and doing emails) or craft. I’ll rarely use the ‘free’ time to clean though I’m betting my husband wishes I did! LOL! =)
So I’m not the only one who becomes super-crafter when home alone?
Bramble Berry does ship to the UK so if you ever want to try it out, you can check the shipping options during the final step before putting in your credit card.
This is my first time i visit here. I found so many interesting stuff in your blog, especially its discussion. From the tons of comments on your posts, I guess I am not the only one having all the leisure here! Keep up the good work.
I really wish I could get that kit in the UK. So many pretty things to make!
Super simple, I just put melted soap in the syringe and tip the mold on its side and ‘fill’ the ribbon, prop it up on its side and then do another task for a couple minutes. Then I rotate the mold and do it again. Once all four sides are done, the rest is a piece of cake. You can use either the droppers https://www.brambleberry.com/Se… or the Syringe: https://www.brambleberry.com/Se… Were you doing the same method? I’m guessing you were! =)
It is SO cute and it’s surprisingly easy to make a great looking bar of soap with it …
I love that presents mold! It’s going on my wish-list at BB. 🙂

Beautiful Thanksgiving soaps!
Just curious… I have the “present” mold and I’m wondering how you got the “Ribbons” on the sides to look so clean. My convoluted method for those is time-consuming and looks nowhere near as nice!
Thanks as always for the wonderful tutorial! 🙂
Wow , love it !! 😉
Yes, it was a lot of fun to just play with soap for the fun of it – extremely rewarding.

you have been busy! look at all those holiday soaps!
Thanks dM. Yes, Chris was on a trip last weekend and I brought a HUGE amount of supplies home to soap up. You know what they say … when the cat’s away, the mouse will … make soap!
