How to make relief designs in handmade bars of soap
How to do it
Weigh 100 g soap base and cut into 3 x 3 cm chunks. Melt in the microwave with 30 second intervals at 80% power and stir between each interval to prevent heat damage. We recommend you use gloves when melting the soap base.
Wash the mould and spray it with rubbing alcohol. Wipe it well to make sure it's completely dry prior to use. Place silicone stamps on the bottom of the moulds and make sure that they are secured to the bottom.
You will need as follows for each finished bar of soap: 100 g soap base, 1 cm soap dye paste and 2-3 drops of essential oil.
Carefully pour the molten soap into the mould, taking care that the silicon stamp at the bottom doesn't move.
Remove any air bubbles from the surface by spraying with rubbing alcohol.
Leave the bars of soap to harden in the mould for 1-2 hours. Carefully remove the silicon stamps without scratching the bars of soap.
Carefully make a hole in the middle of the bar of soap approx. 1 cm from the top edge as shown in the photo. Support the bar of soap on the back to prevent it from breaking. Cut a 50 cm piece of natural hemp, feed it through the hole and tie a knot; one by the soap and one a bit higher up, forming a loop for hanging.
