How to make “fly-agaric soap” of the soap base
Every child will like the bright and funny fly-agaric soap. Due to the recognizable spots on the red surface you can make such a “fly-agaric” even if there is no special mushroom mold. You can make nice soap in a square, round or oval shapes.
- Transparent soap base
- White soap base
- Sweet almond oil
- Green and red cosmetic colourants
- Cosmetic perfume
Melt the transparent soap base on a water bath. To get the brightly coloured soap it is desirable to use exactly the transparent soap base, as you will get a more pastel color in the white soap base with the same quantity of the colourant.
Add the red cosmetic colourant, sweet almond oil and the perfume in the molten soap base. Mix it all up thoroughly.
Fill the shape with the soap base about 1/3, let it get cool.
Make the reach-through holes in the solidified soap base with a case of pen or felt-tip.
Remove the cylinders you have got from the soap base.
Melt the white soap stuff on a water bath, add the sweet almond oil and perfume in it, mix it up thoroughly.
Sprinkle the red soap base with raw spirit and pour the white soap base on it. Don’t pour the white soap base up to the top, leave some space for the green layer.
Melt the transparent soap base on a water bath, add the green colourant, sweet almond oil and perfume to it.
Scratch the cooled white soap base layer with a knife and sprinkle it with raw spirit (for the better adhesion of the soap layers), spread the green soap stuff on the top. Take the soap away until it gets completely cold, after that remove it from the shape.
If you can hardly remove the soap from its shape, you should put it in the fridge for 20-30 minutes. This way you will easily get it out even from a plastic shape.
It is necessary to wrap the ready soap in the food plastic or in a special soap packaging. If the soap is kept in the open air, it loses its flavor and dries up.
- To colour the soap base you have to use the non-migrating cosmetic colourants that help to preserve the clear lines of colours for a long time.
