How to make a gift soap for children
There are a large selection of plastic and silicone molds so that may be used in making soap from soap base. This is why it is not difficult to find a mold for any theme or holiday anymore. The most popular occasions for parents are their child’s birthday, christening and first days of life celebrations. Handmade soap is an original of itself, but when it made out in angels and children molds it would admire anyone for sure.
- White and transparent soap base
- Base oils
- Cosmetic pigments
- Cosmetic fragrances
- Plastic and silicone molds
Those who have ever poured melted soap into molds before will easily handle this project. Layered filling is the key to making different soap colors. Pour one coloured layer, sprinkle the surface with raw spirit, do the next layer, then repeat till done. Raw spirit needs to stick layers together, otherwise the ready made soap can fall to pieces.
You can use blue or pink cosmetic pigments in the same mold to make soap for both girls and boys.
A popular soap design is a baby sleeping in a cabbage. Notice that the soap coloring is required to use non-migrating pigments to get stable picture.
Another way to improve soap is adding pearl mica or glitters to give soap a more festive and elegant look.
One more important thing is the correct selection of the fragrance to the desired color of the soap. For example choosing strawberry flavor to match a pink soap and so on.
- You have to ensure the finished soap will not dry out. It should be packed in plastic wrap or a specially sealed plastic bag with Velcro to preserve the soap.
