- NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron.
- Place the Soap Pop Mold on a cookie sheet to give mold stability if it needs to be moved.
- Weigh 10 oz. of Three Butter soap. Cut up into chunks and place in Mix & Pour Funnel Pitcher.
- Heat in microwave until soap has melted.
- Carefully pour about 1 oz. of soap into each soap pop cavity. NOTE: It is very important to pour directly into the middle of soap cavity. If the soap gets on the sides of the mold, you will have white streaks on the side of the soap pop. The small spout on the funnel pitcher is perfect for this.
- Spritz the inside of the cavities with alcohol to dissolve any surface bubbles. Let soap harden.
- Weigh and separate the Honey Soap in equal halves. Place 16 oz. each in glass pyrex cups.
- Taking the 2 plastic beakers, place 10 ml. of fragrance in each.
- Since this fragrance has a vanilla content, it must be blended with the Vanilla Color Stabilizer to reduce darkening of the soap.
- NOTE: Stabilizer will solidify in colder temperatures. If this happens, place bottle in hot water to liquefy.
- To each beaker, add 5 ml. of Vanilla Color Stabilizer and mix. Allow mixture to sit for 5 minutes.
- Melt Honey Soap in one of the glass cups. Add one beaker of fragrance/stabilizer mixture to soap and stir well.
- Spritz the soap in 5 of the soap cavities with alcohol. Check the temperature of the melted soap to be sure it is no hotter than 125°F.
- Stir the soap in the cup to create bubbles (as you would see in beer). Then carefully pour the soap into the 5 cavities filling to the top. Spritz the tops with alcohol.
- Melt the remaining soap in the microwave. Add the other beaker of fragrance mixture and stir well.
- Using the 1 ml (micro size) scoop, add 3 ml of the Brown Sparkle Mica Powder. Stir well.
- Spritz the remaining cavities in the mold again with alcohol. Once the soap is at or below 125°F, pour into the last 5 cavities filling right to the top. Spritz, again, with alcohol.
- Place the soap pop cover over the soap mold positioning so the slats in the top cover each soap cavity.
- Carefully place a stick down into each cavity keeping it as straight as possible.
- Allow soaps to complete set up and harden.
- To unmold, do not pull on the sticks to pull out of the mold. Carefully pull the mold slightly away from the soap. Then, gently push up from the bottom until they are free from the mold or are pushed up far enough to grab hold of and pull the rest of the way out.
- Package your soaps and enjoy!
