 Twin Hearts Melt and Pour Soap

This soap mould just screamed what soap to make when we dived into the box to unpack it!   I had thought of a purple theme, but decided it was a girly kind of day with glitter and pinks!


You'll need:

 Equipment:

  • 2 small jugs – microwave safe
  • 1 large jug (holds 1kg+ diced soap) – microwave safe
  • Spatula, stirring sticks, knife etc
  • Scales – digital preferably
  • Thermometer – very useful but optional


Method:


Prepare the Melt & Pour Soap portions:

  • 100g diced Shea Butter Melt & Pour Soap Base in a small jug
  • 100g diced Clear Melt & Pour Soap Base in a small jug
  • 960g diced Shea Butter Melt & Pour Soap Base to fill the mould in the large jug

 

 

Fill the first part of the detail - with darker pink glittery soap

  1. Melt the 100g diced Clear Melt & Pour Soap Base in the small jug in 30 second bursts in the microwave - the temperature of the soap should be around 65°C

  2. Add 1 ml (20 drops) Electric Lemonade Fragrance and stir well to combine

  3. Add 2 pigment scoops Raspberry Mica (I had some Carmine Liquid Dispersion on hand but didn’t need to use this) and stir until there are no dry spots – a spray of Isopropyl Alcohol will remove any spots that are on the surface

  4. Next stir in ½ teaspoon Rainbow Glitter

  5. Carefully pour the soap from the small jug into the heart on the right hand side of the design (the full size heart in the mould) – take care not to overfill the cavities)

  6. Then draw up half a pipette of soap at a time and fill in the “tail” of the arrow with this pink glittery soap

  7. Give a quick spritz with Isopropyl Alcohol and allow to set up

Fill the second part of the detail - with pastel pink soap

  1. Melt the 100g diced Shea Butter Melt & Pour Soap Base in the other small jug  in 30 second bursts in the microwave - the temperature of the soap should be around 65°C

  2. Add 1 ml (20 drops) Electric Lemonade Fragrance and stir well to combine

  3. Add 1 pigment scoop of Raspberry Pink Mica and stir until there are no dry spots – a spray of Isopropyl Alcohol will remove any spots that are on the surface

  4. Spritz the set glittery pink soap ready for the over pour

  5. Carefully pour the soap from the other small jug into the heart on the left hand side of the design allowing it to flow over the right hand heart, a spray with Isopropyl Alcohol with remove any bubbles and also help the soap flow quickly and easily – take care not to overfill the cavities though, just until it laps the edge

  6. Then draw up half a pipette of this pale pink soap at a time and fill in the “tip” of the arrow with this pale pink soap

  7. Give a quick spritz with Isopropyl Alcohol and allow to set up

 

Now it's time to fill the rest of the mould with uncoloured Shea Butter Soap Base

  1. Now melt the diced Shea Butter Soap Base in the large jug

  2. When it has reached 60 to 65°C, add the 15 - 18ml/g of Electric Lemonade Fragrance and stir through well to combine

  3. Spray the set soap in the mould (the pink layers of the hearts and arrows) generously with Isopropyl Alcohol and then pour Shea Butter soap over the back of a spoon or spatula covering the surface of the tray mould

    Spray with Isopropyl Alchol to remove any surface bubbles

  4. Allow to set up for a minimum of several hours, or if leaving overnight pop a plastic tray over the mould to avoid any moisture forming on the surface

  5. Release the airlock from the around the edges of the mould, invert onto the bench and release from the mould

  6. Using a sharp, thin non-serrated knife, cut into 8 soaps using the guide lines on the mould

  7. Wrap or store in an airtight jar
