Soap Confetti or Confetti Soap


Have not decided which way round it should be.

I am thinking this might just be too easy.. so didn't know whether to add it or not.. but it was so easy I thought its worth sharing.
Just in case someone
 doesn't know how to do it..

Here is the actual tutorial
http://craftbits.com/project/soap-confetti/
http://craftbits.com/project/chunky-confetti-block-soap/


Materials:  
Fine Soap Flakes
Food Coloring
 
Instructions:  

This project is so easy but so effective.

Add the soap flakes into a bowl and add 2-3 drops of food coloring into the bowl.

Using a fork stir in the food coloring until all the soap flakes are tinted.

Then spread out flat on a plate or board and allow it to dry off (the coloring leaves it moist)

then add to a Jar along with a spoon for a great gift.

Make layers of different colors for a fun finish.

these are great for kids, and also for very dirty workshop hands which means the end to dirty black soap that needs washing before you use it.

 
Let me know what u think.....

Could you shredd a normal bar of soap with a cheese shredder and use that instead? Or would that somehow be bad? =P

I have actually done that.. shredded a bar of soap that is , its a very slow process though...
but you would get the same effect.

the bought soap flakes are very light though, so I dont think u could grate the soap as fine, but it would still look like confetti

You can do the same sort of thing with epsom salts for people whose skin is too sensitive for soap. These are really easy for kids to make. Epsom salts are available at your local pharmacy.

Put epsom salts in a bowl.
Add a few drops of food colouring.
Add a few drops of scent if required.
Stir it all together until the colour is well distributed.

Make up different batches in different colours and layer in a glass jar.

Epsom salts added to a bath creates a soothing, silky bath experience.
