New Swirl Tools

Special Sale! Silicone Tools

After years of testing and destroying all kinds of tools in our soap lab we finally found something that can stand up to our demanding craft. Our silicone tools are incredibly flexible and can handle the high temperatures that come from mixing lye and water together over and over. They are also really easy to clean. We have a spoon, a spatula, a ladle, or a square spoon to choose from or, if you can't decide, get the entire set!

Indigo Plop Recipe

Indigo Spoon Plop Cold Process Recipe

Try out our new Indigo Powder with this great recipe! We used earthy colorants and rosemary, lavender and eucalyptus essential oils to create the raw beauty of this natural soap. The indigo turned a lovely blue-grey and provided a perfect counterpoint to the orange of the Paprika and the yellow of the Safflower. The spoon plop technique is easy yet it yields consistently interesting results.

    Step 1

    ONE: Cut all of the Clear Melt and Pour base into small, 1 inch cubes. Then divide it into 5 separate heatsafe containers with:

    • 18 oz. in one container
    • 18 oz. in a second container
    • 4 oz. in each of the remaining three containers

    Step 2 TWO:Melt each container, one by one, in the microwave on 10 second bursts. Color one 18 oz. container with Super Pearly White Mica, and color the second 18 oz. container with the Vintage Grey Mica. Color the remaining three containers with Sparkle Gold Mica, Light Gold Mica and Bronze Mica.

    THREE: Divide your fragrance equally among the 5 containers. Eye-balling is okay! Stir in the fragrance with a spoon or whisk.

    Step 4 FOUR: While the soap is still very thin, pour waves of the grey and pearly white soap over each other in the mold. These will be your base colors so you can pour these colors liberally.

    FIVE: Using a spatula or spoon, splatter and drip the three remaining colors (Sparkle Gold, Light Gold and Bronze) into the mold. Dripping these colors into the mold will create an interesting pattern in the final soap, so have fun with this part! These are your accent colors. Use them sparingly.
    Step 5
    Continue this pattern -- pouring white & black and then splattering the other colors -- until you’ve filled about ⅔ of the mold.

    SEVEN: Now cut the tips of your frosting bags. One frosting bag will have a wider opening than the other, so cut one frosting bag about two inches above the tip. Cut the other frosting bag about one inch above the tip.

    Step 10

    EIGHT: Cut and melt 12 oz. of clear melt and pour base in a heat safe container on 10 second bursts. Split off 6 oz. of the melted soap into a separate container. Add 2 tablespoons of Liquid Soap Concentrate Base to each container.

    NINE:To one container, add about 30 drops of Liquid Black Oxide. To the other, add ½ teaspoon Bronze Mica.

    TEN: Using a hand mixer, whip the soap for about 2 minutes, or until it starts to form stiff, soapy peaks. Repeat this process for the other container.

    Step 11 ELEVEN: Using a spatula or spoon, gently plop the bronze whipped soap into the frosting bag with the smaller opening. Do the same for the grey whipped soap in the bag with the larger opening.

    TWELVE: Put down a layer of the grey soap into the mold. Once the surface is fully covered with the grey soap, put down a layer of the bronze soap and then put down one final layer of grey soap.

    Final Step THIRTEEN: Give the whipped soap a few minutes to harden up then drizzle small amounts of each color on top. At this point, it’s okay if your soap has cooled or if it’s starting to harden. If it’s too hot, it will melt the delicate whipped soap underneath.

    FOURTEEN: Allow the soap to dry for 2 - 3 hours before unmolding.
