Glycerin Soap with Eraser Toy recipe and video

Hi Kin Community viewers and all Soapylove fans!  Today we are making the classic glycerin soap project - the toy-in-soap!  :)  This is a hit with kids and has lots of creative potential for non-kids, too!  Think of different color and item combinations.  You don't have to be limited to toys.  Any item that will not be sensitive to submersion in moisture and heat will be fine.  You can even use little plastic containers to put a message or gift inside!  Here is the video and full project instructions...

Toy Soap
Cutting board, knife, pyrex cup.
Spray bottle with rubbing alcohol 
Plastic treat bag, ribbon.

Cut clear soap base into cubes and melt in microwave.  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 colorant and fragrance oil.

Fill mold ¼” full.  Allow to form a firm skin, spray toy with alcohol, then press toy into soap layer.

Spray soap and exposed side of toy with alcohol, then top off with remaining soap.  You may need to warm up your soap again.

Allow to harden at room temp, freeze for 10 minutes.  Invert mold and pop out by pushing with your thumbs.  Pulling the edge of the mold away from the hardened soap will help release the bar if it's not coming out easily.

Wrap in plastic treat bag, tie with ribbon.

You always find the cutest toys for your embeds! My favorites are either these or those adorable aliens you used for your UFO soaps ;)
