Full of sparkle and shine, it’s easy to see why soap gems are making a serious comeback. These Sparkling Garnet Soap Gems were inspired by the sophisticated January birthstone. Garnets actually come in a wide variety of colors, but the deep red hue is the most popular. Garnets are said to signify friendship and trust, making these Garnet Soap Gems a great gift!
Merlot Sparkle Mica is added to Clear Melt and Pour Base to achieve the rich, scarlet color. Pomegranate and Black Currant Fragrance Oil give these soapy gems a juicy scent, with notes of citrus and soft florals. Once cooled and hardened, the soap is cut at random angles to achieve an authentic gem appearance. This project is easy to customize, and is perfect for beginning crafters. As a bonus, a wide variety of micas and glitter are 20% off, including the Merlot Sparkle Mica and Fine Iridescent Glitter.
