Title: zombie soap and tinkerbell
Post by: prettysoldier77 on September 30, 2009 10:39:48 PM
First time making soap, everyone on here makes it look so easy. So I went to Joannes, picked up a brick of glycerine, dye, tinkerbell stickers, and a mold. In all it cost about $20. Then I headed over to the Dollar Tree and found these neat skull molds for ice cubes, a spray bottle & rubbing alcohol. And came out with these. To make the zombie soaps, first I put a drop of red coloring in the mold, then poured the green colored soap into the mold. It made an awesome swirl effect and each soap was a little different.














A lesson I learned!! Do not pour searing hot soap on top of already cooled soap. it will not layer, it will melt a crator into the cooled soap ='( boo.

How fun! I may have to go and get that same ice cube mold; I have a feeling it'd be a hit with all the boys I know! :)

Welcome to the world of soaping, it's addictive, you've been warned. ;D

these are way cute! I made some too, but mine were hot processed, so they're not as pretty.

I love how we saw an ice cube tray and automatically thought SOAP!

Me too. I feel like such a M&P hipster! ;D

Quite frankly, by the end of the month, I want to see dozens of skull/brain/pumpkin soaps! ;D

Is that a challenge? Are you challening me?

Love your skull soaps!
 I've been desperately looking for a way to cast my pieces in resin!
But since I'm from Portugal not be here, none of this :(
