the Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base into 1 inch cubes and melt in a
heat-safe container on 30 second bursts in the microwave, stirring
TWO: Add 0.3 oz
Champagne Fragrance Oil to the melted soap base and mix well. Split the
base in half, each portion weighing 6 ounces.
THREE: Color one
portion with the Black Oxide Color Block. I like to shave easily
meltable bits off the color block using the clean-up tool. When working
with color blocks remember that what you see is what you get! So add as
much or as little color as you need to achieve your desired color.
Repeat with the other portion, this time using the Shimmer Coral and
Electric Bubblegum Color Blocks. For a slightly darker red, add a
teensy bit of the Black Oxide Color Block.
FOUR: Pour the black soap into 6 of
the cavities of the 12 bar Rectangle Silicone Mold, filling each cavity
about ¼ full. Spritz with Isopropyl (Rubbing) Alcohol to eliminate
bubbles. Repeat with the red soap, filling the other 6 cavities about ¼
full and spritzing again with Isopropyl (Rubbing) Alcohol.
FIVE: Allow the soap
to fully harden. While waiting for the soap to harden, print and cut
out the mustache and lip templates (downloadable here). Unmold the red
and black soaps. Place a mustache template on a piece of black soap,
and use a craft knife to cut around the template. Use the templates to cut mustaches from
the 6 bars of black soap, and lips from the 6 bars of red soap.
For soap on a stick, use a skewer to pierce the soap. Wrap the soap
with plastic wrap or a cute cello bag and ribbon. Enjoy!
Tip for using
With the template on the soap, use the craft knife to make a line all
the way around the template, but not an actual full cut. Remove the
template and use the line to make your final cut. I found cutting was
easier when I angled the soap with the widest part of the soap
perpendicular to me.
