Here is how to create hearts on top of your cold process soap.
You’ll need a slow moving cold process soap recipe, squirt bottles and skewers.
Sweet Almond oil – 1.25 oz
Coconut oil – 12.5 oz
Olive oil – 10 oz
Rice Bran oil – 3.5 oz
Shea butter – 2.75 oz
Sunflower oil – 2 oz
Lye – 4.6 oz
Water – 7 oz
Bring your soap to a steady emulsion. You want it to be nice and thin to have time to separate and color your soap. Divide out your soap for the base and the individual colors. Put the colors into squirt bottles. Here is the basic design process inside a single mold but you can do this across the surface of a slab mold as well.
Pour the base into your mold. Using the squirt bottles, draw dots onto the surface. You can make them as big or as small as you want.
Using a skewer, draw through the hearts starting from one side of the dot to the other drawing the tail out to complete the motion. You can even go through many dots in one motion without removing the skewer. For these I just went in a counter clockwise motion (without removing the skewer).
Excelente. Gracias por compartir con nosotros tu conocimiento.
God bless you for sharing knowledge with all of us. I’m from Panama, and the first transparent soap that I made, was thanks to you.
Love you blog and your soap techniques. I was looking at this recipe and want to try it. Your water amount seems short when I run it through the SoapCalc. I did a 30% lye concentration and 33% lye concentration and I still get a different number than you have. I get 9.425 as my water with a 33% lye concentration. Please advise.
Hi Frances, I do not use soap calc to get my water amounts. Here is some more info on how I calculate water. https://lovinsoap.com/2012/12/calculating-your-water-amount-for-soapmaking/
Beautiful job, I can’t wait to give it a try. May I ask what you colourants you’re using?
I love how easy this is, thanks for sharing, Amanda! 🙂
These would make adorable gifts for valentine’s day!
You are so crafty (I mean this is a good way.)
Love it! Sooo cute and great colours 😉
