Recipe Directions

  1. 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.
  2. In plastic beaker, mix 1 oz. of glycern with 1/4 teaspoon black pigment powder. Mix until powder is completely dissolved. Set aside.
  3. Weigh 2 oz. of extra clear soap and cut into small chunks. Place in glass measuring cup.
  4. Place in microwave and heat until soap is melted. Stir soap to be sure it is completely melted.
  5. Add black color to clear soap to reach desired shade.
  6. Place rectangle silicone mold on jelly roll pan. This helps stabilize mold if it needs to be moved.
  7. Pour black soap into 2-3 cavities, dividing soap evenly, pouring about 1/4" deep. Let soap harden.
  8. Once soap has completely hardened, remove from mold. Cut out enough bow ties to make six bars.
  9. For buttons: melt about 1 oz of clear soap and add more black color. Using the Deco-It mold, pour into the first circle of each string of circles. You will only make 3 buttons at a time and will need to repeat until all 18 buttons are made.
  10. To set up buttons quickly, place mold in freezer. They should easily release from the mold after about 5 minutes.
  11. For bars, weigh out 20 ounces of ultra white soap, cut into chunks and place in glass measuring cup.
  12. Heat soap in microwave until completely melted.
  13. To melted soap, add .60 oz. of fragrance oil. Stir to incorporate fragrance into soap.
  14. Place rectangle silicone mold on jelly roll pan. Pour melted soap into all four cavities to about 1/4 inch from top and spritz with alcohol. Let set up.
  15. Melt 4 oz. of clear soap in microwave. Let soap cool down to around 125 degrees.
  16. Spritz white soap generously with alcohol. Pour a very thin layer of clear soap into first cavity.
  17. Immediately place bow tie pieces into clear soap, spritzing tie pieces before placing in.
  18. Do the same with the 3 buttons made earlier positioning them below the tie.
  19. Spritz again and pour more clear soap over shirt-just enough to cover tie/buttons.
  20. Follow with next 3 cavities. It is best to do one cavity at a time so the soap does not harden up before placing in the tie and buttons.
  21. Once soap has completely set up, remove from mold and wrap in tight plastic wrap or shrink wrap bags.
  22. With remaining soap, make final 2 bars
  23. Wrap all soap and label when all 6 bars are finished.
