Candy Shaped Soap
These cheeky little candy soaps make great party favors, impulse item, or part of a gift set. Not only do they look sweet, but they are fairly easy to make. We got the mold here, another link will be listed at the bottom of this blog. You can use any candy shaped mold as you please. However when working with melt and pour soap, using a silicone mold works best. Using plastic molds for melt and pour soap can be a bad idea, for it is difficult to take the soap out of the plastic mold.
You will need:
- Binchotan activated charcoal powder
- Super clear M&P soap
- Mica: Xirona magic mauve
- Soap Colorant– Green, Pink, Violet, And Orange
- Fragrance Oil
- Pipettes: at least 5
Candy Shaped Soap Tutorial Steps:
- Melt 1oz of super clear soap
- once melted, add 1/8 teaspoon of charcoal, mix to dissolve.
- Fill a pipette with the black soap and gently apply in the lowest part and accents of the candy mold.
- Let cool completely and start the next step while allowing the black to cool.
- melt 20 more ounces of soap, then add fragrance and mica mix well.
- separate about 1 ounce of prepared soap and add 2-4 drops of colorant.
- Spray the mold with alcohol and pour in the colored soap. repeat this step for every color.
- Let them cool at least 2 hours before removing them from the mold.
Use any color combination to fit any theme. This tutorial can easily be tailored to any season and holiday. Be sure to wait those two hours when removing them from the mold! If you are patient the layers should not separate and the soap will look stunning. Don’t forget to add your own special touch like dusting the finished soap with glitters or mica.
