Soap making

Lily soap

I love soap making. Once you have played with molds, colors, scents and layers you end up with a desire to make something outstanding, like modelling from a soap. And it turns out that it is as easy as a play doh. And once we are ready for an experiment, let's make a soap with a lily inside. 

For this tutorial I had the following materals and tools:

  • clear and white soap base
  • red and blue coloring
  • perfume - I've used a geranium essential oil
  • peach oil
  • bath salt, glitters, oregano
  • oval soap mold
  • glass and a stick

Cut 15 gr of a white soap base into small pieces, place it in a glass and melt it in a microwave or a water bath. Once the soap is melted, add some glitter, stirr in and pour it on a table. Make sure that the surface is clean and does not contain any dust or crumbs on it.

let the base to cool down just a little bit. It should still be warf and flexible for shaping. using a knife cut out the leaf and petals - 3 big petals and 3 smaller. the rest of a soap just cut in streight stripes.

remove the deails from a table and start to shape. The next step should be done really fast, before the soap gets cold and looses a flexibility

now it is time to shape a flower. Place the big petals, plunging their tips into soap, that is still jelly-like. Add the medium size petals. the small petals are placed around the main flower. Place come bath salt into a flower center as a pistil.

Using the glass with colored base leftovers, add some clear base and melt it. We now have an azure colored soap

Fill in the space in a mold with this soap, making sure that petals and salt are intact. Leave to cool down for an hour, or 20 minutes in a fridge.
