Soap Project by yobanda Soap Project by yobanda
Wow I havn't posted a deviantation in what seems like forever!
So my friend Trudie and I thought to make soap for our family and friends this Christmas and this was our end result! We used the simple melt and pour method and it worked great!

We used a lot of different scents, but my favorites were the chocolate/peppermint and cinnamon sugar scented ones we made!

We tried a lot of layering techniques as well and used cookie cutters! I hope you enjoy!

Well I have only tried melt and pour soap and it works great for me. ^-^
All you need is some glycerin base soap from hobby lobby (you can get some in bulk). Then melt one block of the soap base in a microwavable container for 25-30 seconds in the microwave. Take it out and make sure the soap is all melted, then mix sparkles, scents, food dye, perfume, shampoo, anything you want into the mixture and pour the mixture into a mold (bendy molds are good). Let it sit for 15 min and then take it out of the mold. Voila you have some good soap!

I used a few books from the library, so I have no links for how to do it sorry D: I tried to explain best I could ^-^ Its quite easy and fun to do with friends!

Are the sea shells real sea shells, or soap sea shells?

:cries: I want some!

They are lovely. You've done very well with them! :clap: I like the one with shells. Problem is, would people want to use them? If they did, the pattern would be lost...

This is why I don't use fancy hand soaps. I use liquid! :giggle:

Hahah well thank youuu! ^-^ I'm glad you like them!
Yeah I know what you mean and some people are using them for decoration for a while. But it is sad when you use good soap and its gone after a while..
But they are good once and a while.
I love using foam soap though. [[:
