Melt and Pour Soap
Conversation Hearts Soap


    Date : 2003-02-17

    Introduction


    This was my first soap and I was amazed at how easy it was to do!

    Ingredients

    Equipment

      Transfer pipettes or droppers
      Microwave and immersion blender are suggested
      Molds of your choice.
      Soap Spoon
      Pyrex glass measure for melting in the microwave.

    Instructions

    Melt white soap and use dropper to fill in letters. You may find it easier to use a cake decorating bag but we don't have those around this soap place. :-) Once the letters are filled, in allow the soap to solidify. Then buff out any areas that overflowed outside the letter area.

    Melt the clear soap. Once liquid, add the Aqua Mica and stir well. I used an immersion blender. Add fragrance oil, stir well. Pour slowly into molds. The goal is to not melt the white soap but create a layer of soap that protects the letters from melting while filling the remainder of the mold. I poured about 1/4 inch and let it firm before filling the mold completely.
