Moonstone Melt and Pour Soap Project

I was inspired to make this pattern soap by my own bathroom tiles!  They are not new, but suddenly I thought I would like to make a soap replicating the marble like pattern. If you prefer, you can use your favourite essential oils for scent.

Moonstone Melt and Pour Soap Project

I have paired our Crystal Donkey Milk Melt and Pour Soap Base with Bramble Berry's Moonstone Fragrance (from the Gemstone Collection) to create this simple swirled design.  You can download Stephenson's Donkey Milk PDF Brochure HERE

I have used our Flexible Slab Mould that makes 8 Rectangle Bars when cut, and this takes the whole 1kg of base.

You'll need:

Moonstone Marble Donkey Milk Melt and Pour Soap

Method:

Cut the Donkey Milk Soap Base into small chunks, and place in a microwave large safe jug, cover loosely, and then heat on medium/low in 60 second bursts. 
Keep the temperature of the melted soap base to maximum of around 70°C

Dice the clear soap base and place into a small jug ready to melt when the Donkey Milk Soap has completely melted.

Drip sufficient Black Pigment Dispersion into the clear soap to make a nice rich charcoal colour - a few drops is usually sufficient.

Add the Moonstone Fragrance and Vanilla Colour Stabiliser (or Essential Oil/s) to the Donkey Milk jug and stir well to combine.

Carefully pour a train of the black soap over the surface of the Donkey Milk Soap

Use a spatula to make ONE figure of eight movement to swirl the colour through.  
TOO MUCH AND YOU WILL HAVE GREY SOAP

Carefully pour into the soap mould, keeping the jug as close as possible to the rim of the mould.

Spritz with alcohol to remove any surface bubbles (if using) and allow the soap plenty of time to set up
(even overnight - though if leaving in damp or humid weather, 
cover the slab with a tray.

When set up, invert the mould, and peel it back from the slab of soap.

This batch is a little dark for my taste, so I have adjusted the amount black soap added in this tutorial.

Begin cutting into individual bars using the guide lines to slide the knife though the slab.

Finish cutting the slab into 8 bars of soap. 
We recommend wrapping the soaps, or store in an airtight jar before use.

 Note:  If using the trolley Bramble Berry Moonstone Fragrance is included, if selecting Essential Oils just delete this item!
