Indigo Spoon Plop Cold Process Recipe

This great recipe incorporates our new natural Indigo Powder colorant. We used earthy colorants and rosemary, lavender and eucalyptus essential oils to create this beautiful, raw, natural soap. The indigo turned a lovely blue-grey and provided a perfect counterpoint to the orange of Paprika and the yellow of the Safflower. The spoon plop technique is easy yet will yield interesting results. Try our new Indigo Powder and try your hand at this great recipe.

Beautiful Swirl Cold process soap

Impress(ive) Soap!

Our new Soap Clay base is fun and versatile. If you aren’t a sculptor, try stamping! For this project, we used one of our soap stamps, but you could use any style of stamp. Highlighting the stamp with a touch of mica really sets off the design and the clay itself seems to float in a sea  of vivid, translucent pink.

Ingredients:


Optional: Kaolin Clay

    ONE: Prep your soap clay first to make it easier to mold. Heat the entire pound in 10 second bursts using a heat-safe container in the microwave. Between each burst break the soap clay apart in your hands to evenly distribute the heat and repeat 2 to 3 times.

    Step 2 TWO:Once your soap clay is soft enough to mold, split roughly half of it into a second container. In that container, add the Liquid Blue colorant. This colorant is a what-you-see-is-what-you-get, so the amount of colorant you add is up to you. Here we used app. 2 tablespoons. Gloves may help as you knead the soap clay to fully distribute the color. It may take a good 5 minutes or more of kneading to fully work the color into the clay. Stick with it!



    Step 4 THREE: Add the Liquid Green Oxide Colorant to the other container of soap clay and repeat the process. Again we used about 2 tablespoons.


    FOUR:
    Break off portions of each colored clay and combine them to get a blend of the two colors.




    Step 5

    FIVE: (You can spread a little kaolin clay over your workspace to prevent the soap clay from sticking) Flatten the soap clay until it is about ¼ inch thick (this part is just like rolling dough to make sugar cookies!). Take the middle-sized circle cutter from the Circle Shaped Cutters pack, and bend it into a slight oval shape and use it to cut out 12 ovals from the clay.




    Step 6 SIX: Spray a bit of isopropyl alcohol on the Holly Soap Clay Stamp and then dab it directly into the container of Sparkle Gold Mica. This helps the mica adhere to the stamp. Then, gently press the stamp into the soap clay cut-outs. If there is too much gold mica for your liking, you can gently blow the excess away. If you want less gold mica try not wetting the stamp with alcohol before applying the mica.



    Step 3

    SEVEN: Cut and melt 15 oz. of Clear Melt & Pour Base in a heat-safe container on 10 second bursts in the microwave. Add 0.1 oz. of Santa Spruce Fragrance Oil and stir, then pour about an oz. of soap into each cavity. Allow the soap to fully harden to ensure the soap clay doesn’t sink through (about 10 - 15 minutes), and then place the soap clay cut outs face down into each cavity. Pour the remaining soap directly over each embed to fully cover it.

    Step 9 EIGHT: Spray with isopropyl alcohol to disperse bubbles, and then allow the soap to harden for about 30 minutes.









    Final Step NINE:While the clear soap hardens, cut and melt 33 oz. of Clear Melt and Pour Base. Add 0.6 oz. of Santa Spruce Fragrance Oil and shavings of the Electric Bubblegum Color Block. Stir well to incorporate both color and fragrance. Once the soap has cooled to 130 degrees or below (you wouldn’t want to melt the freshly poured soap in the first layer), pour into each cavity until full. Don't forget to apply isopropyl alcohol before pouring in order to ensure the soap layers adhere to one another.

    TEN: Allow the soap to cool for 2 - 3 hours before unmolding. Enjoy!
