Neon Blue Raspberry

Neon Blue Raspberry

The newest addition to our cosmetic grade line of neon pigments is a gorgeous brilliant blue. This pigment creates a deep non-bleeding aqua in melt & pour soap and a beautiful turquoise in cold process.

As with all of our neon pigments, we recommend using a mini mixer to mix the powder into a carrier (oil or glycerin) before adding it to your soap to ensure smooth, speckle free color.

Smoky Bay Soap

Smoky Bay Soap

Anne-Marie is crafting up a storm with her Smoky Bay Soap on the Soap Queen Blog. Layers of dusky gray are punctuated by a delicate peach stripe.

She made the peach color by taking our neon Tangerine Wow! pigment and toning it down with Titanium Dioxide and Brick Red Oxide. Who would  guess that such a delicate shade began with such a bright color!

Beautiful Swirl Cold process soap

Rainbow Heart Soap

We love using silicone molds for cold process soap, you don't have to line the mold and removal is a breeze. Silicone molds are great with melt & pour soap too! In this project we use our new heart embedding mold and fabulous 6" slab mold (on sale now!) to make an extremely cute soap perfect for Valentine's Day.

Step 1

ONE: Chop 15 oz of Clear Melt & Pour base into small chunks and melt on 30 second bursts in the microwave. Use 6 different heatsafe containers (we use coffee mugs) and pour 2.5 oz. of soap into each container.

TWO: You will then create a different color in each container. Add shavings of the color blocks as follows:

  • Ultramarine Blue to the first container
  • Tangerine Wow! to the second
  • Fizzy Lemonade to the third
  • 2 parts Electric Bubblegum to 1 part Ultramarine Blue to make purple in the fourth
  • 3 parts Fizzy Lemonade to 2 parts Ultramarine Blue to make green in the fifth
  • Equal parts Fired Up Fuschia and Electric Bubblegum to make the perfect pink in the last container

NOTE: The Fizzy Lemonade Color Block looks orange when you first add it to your soap. Be sure to stir it until it's completely melted to see the true color before you add more.

TIP: Color blocks are what-you-see-is-what-you-get, so add as much or as little color as you like!

Step 2

THREE: Each silicone heart mold will be used to create only one color of heart, so pour each color into it’s own single mold. If you are working with fewer than 6 molds, you can always wait 30 minutes for the soap to set-up, unmold, and then pour the next color. The silicone molds are watertight, but be sure to carefully snap the seal together. You wouldn’t want to end up with a soapy mess.

FOUR Once all of the embeds are made, cut them to fit the 6” slab mold. You should have a little bit leftover. Make sure to save this for the end. Remove them from the mold but keep them ready to quickly place in your soap.


Step 3

FIVE: Cut and melt 20 oz. of the Goat Milk base. Add 0.4 oz. of Pink Grapefruit fragrance oil. Pour a thin layer into the 6” slab mold. Pour just enough to completely cover the bottom of the mold. Spray with isopropyl alcohol to disperse bubbles.

SIX: Wait 3 - 5 minutes for the layer to dry, and then spray the first layer with alcohol. Pour a little more soap in. While the soap is still liquid, immediately spray the embeds with alcohol, and place them in the mold. We arranged ours in rainbow color order and canted them to the side so they would sit at an angle.

Step 4 SEVEN: Spray the hearts with alcohol and pour the remaining Goat Milk soap so it completely covers the hearts. Spray with alcohol again to disperse bubbles.

EIGHT: Wait 1 - 2 hours for the Goat Milk soap to harden. While you’re waiting, use a soap cutter to cut the leftover heart embeds into mini hearts that are about ½ centimeter wide.


Step 4 NINE: When the Goat Milk soap is firm to the touch, arrange your cut heart soaps on top. We randomly arranged ours but you can try a fun pattern!

ELEVEN: Cut 4 oz. of Clear Melt and Pour base. Melt it  in a heat-safe container,  using 10 second bursts. Once it has cooled to 125°F, spray the hearts liberally with alcohol and then pour the melted soap over the hearts. Spray with isopropyl alcohol to disperse bubbles. Allow the soap to harden for 30 - 60 minutes. Cut with a sharp knife into bars and enjoy!
