“Confetti soap” refers to bars that contain shreds of previously made batches. The soap shreds look like pieces of confetti or sprinkles in the final bar. I love the playful look it creates. The technique is a great way to use up extra soap or a batch that didn’t turn out quite right. I have used both fully cured soap shreds and fresh soap shreds with good results.
For this Violet Confetti Tutorial, soap colored with Queen’s Purple Mica and Titanium Dioxide are layered to create contrast. Shreds of soap made with Queen’s Purple Mica and Orchid Mica are added to the white layer for interest. If you don’t have leftover purple soap, other colors would look great as well. In particular, shreds of green, yellow or pink soap would look beautiful. Violet Fragrance Oil mimics the purple colors. This fragrance accelerates slightly, which aids in creating a textured top. Lavender Mica is sprinkled on top for sparkle.
