This is a great project for kids to make for their Valentines this year. The recipients are sure to enjoy a gift made with love!
NOTE–Children should always be supervised by an adult when making soap. test
Prepare the Soap Mold by lightly coating the inside surfaces with Petroleum Jelly or Vegetable Oil, so that the soap will release easily when cooled.
- Melt 5 ounces of Soap Base using your preferred melting method.
- Once the Soap is completely melted, pour a thin layer of Soap into the Mold.
- Lightly spray the thin layer with Rubbing Alcohol to get rid of any unwanted bubbles.
- Allow the Soap to fully cool in the Mold.
- Once the thin layer is done, remelt the container of Clear Soap Base (it probably started to solidify).
- Spray the top of the Soap in the Mold with Rubbing Alcohol so that the Foam Shapes will adhere.
- Spray the Foam Shapes with Rubbing Alcohol on both sides and place them in the Mold on top of the Soap. NOTE–when working with words, the letters need to be backwards.
- Fill the rest of the Mold with the melted Soap.
- Lightly spray the top of the soap with Rubbing Alcohol to get rid of any unwanted bubbles.
- Allow the Soap to cool for a few hours and then take it out of the Mold. TIP–if the soap is not going to be used right away, wrap it in plastic wrap so that it does not lose any of its moisture.
