Today's video shows how to make Soapylove's signature soap pops, but in a fun rocket shape! The mold for this project is super easy to use and unmold. Here is the full tutorial with links to the supplies. Have fun! (Oh, and there's a two-color version in my Soapylove book plus the classic Neapolitan Soap Pop, if you're feeling inspired!)
Pot for boiling water
Cutting board, knife, pyrex cup.
Spray bottle with rubbing alcohol (optional)
- Cut clear soap base into cubes and melt in microwave (4 oz per soap). Start with 30 seconds on high power and stir. Repeat until soap is mostly melted, then stir until completely melted.
- Add a few drops each of desired colorant and fragrance oil. Stir well.
- Pour into molds, to 1/8” from top edge of mold. Spray with rubbing alcohol to pop any bubbles.
- Allow a firm skin to form on the top of the mold, insert sticks.
- Freeze for 30 minutes.
- Use butter knife to push edge of mold away from soap.
- Bring pot of water to simmer. Remove pop mold from frame and dip mold into simmering water, holding soap by the stick. Pull soap out of mold.
- Wrap in plastic wrap and tie closed with ribbon around stick. Tip: Wrapping soap in paper before inserting in plastic bag prevents the soap from sticking.
