Soap gems and crystals are making a big comeback! Beautiful to look at, it’s easy to understand why they can be found in numerous boutiques, craft stores, Etsy shops and large chain stores. Interested in making your own? They are a great project for both beginner and advanced crafters. In this video, I’ll show you how to create gems using two techniques. One technique is quick and easy and creates an emerald gem. The other involves an extra step but results in a more realistic amethyst gem appearance. If you’ve never made melt and pour soap before, I would recommend checking out the Basics of Melt and Pour Soap video series to understand the basics of working with melt and pour.
I love this project because there are so many options for colors, fragrances and shapes. Have fun experimenting with different shades to create your favorite gems, rocks and crystals. In this video I use the 9 Cube Soap Silicone Mold and cut the soap into various shapes. If you don’t have a soap making mold, this project can also be made with recyclable materials such as plastic food containers. If you give this project a try, be sure to share it on our Facebook page and Instagram with the hashtag #SoapShare!
