  Moonlight Pomegranate CP Soap Log

This is the depth needed for the finished colour prior to pouring the swirl



Method:

The instructions below are edited down, as full instructions which MUST BE READ FOR SAFETY, are on these links:  see our Cold Process Soapmaking Instructions.  You can also watch Soap Queen's YouTube Series on Cold Process Soapmaking.

If you are a beginner, we recommend make this soap just one colour. If you are more advanced, you can follow the instructions below and make the centre pattern similar to marbling with a contrasting colour down the centre.

 

  • Prepare all ingredients and line the mould as usual

  • Set aside a small container or heat proof jug for the red swirl colour

  • Bring soap to thin trace, mix through the Titanium Dioxide and then remove approximately 1 - 2 cups of soap (I used a extra large waxed cup for this)

  • Colour the soap in the spare jug to a fairly dark shade as above

  • Colour the main pot of soap with a very light shade of the Brites for CP Pink, just enough to see it’s there - careful not to overtrace

  • Now quickly tip the red portion back into the main soap pot portion (the very pale pink/white)

  • DO NOT MIX THIS

  • Working quickly, pour the soap into the log mould – the colours will mix as you do this creating the effect as shown in the pictures

  • If you need to adjust the surface colour you can use a chopstick or spatula to drag the colour around or into the textured top and to soften the sharp colour

  • See full instructions for In the Pot Swirling Technique HERE.

  • Spritz with Isopropyl Alcohol to avoid possible ashing of the top surface, then insulate for gel, or you can cover with acetate once firm enough to lie this over the top without it sticking

  • Unmould and slice as usual
