Not sure of technique
by Marissa on 4/23/2015
This paper has great potential but I need some pointers. We used a laser printer. Because we are making favors for a family event that is approaching quickly we did not wait a day for the ink to dry. After Letting the clear layer set, we placed the design and then very lightly sprayed with alcohol because the paper did not seem to stick to the clear soap. We waited and then poured the white fragranced layer. The issue is air bubbles. The design is not flat and I see air trapped in the clear layer between the message and the soap. Should I have pressed down on the thin paper with a damp sponge like in the tattoo video or should I have used more alcohol? I was afraid of bleeding. It does seem a bit yellow so I may try bluing yet next batch. Thanks for any advice on the ideal technique

I was very concerned that my printer would not be a good one for this, but I'm happy to say I was wrong. Red bleeds in under a month though, but most of the other colors take closer to a month to bleed. Yellow also bleeds fast. I love using this, because I can customize any bar of soap with just a photo.
Love it - makes incredible artistic soaps

I use the water soluble paper in my HP laser jet printer with no problems. I print artwork from various artists, cut to fit the molds and layer with clear (that has been blued to remove the yellow), then white, then a coordinating color (this is the only part I fragrance). I do NOT use hair spray or anything else to seal the color as I find there is no need to. I do use my own technique that works flawlessly every time giving me beautiful, custom on- of-a-kind artistic soaps that get tons of compliments. Wish I could post a pic of one of them.

This paper is a heavy need to have patience and practice. A laser printer works beautifully and I still spray with hairspray for a day. It is very much a trial and error process. But once you get it, you will be become is AWESOME. Clear and crisp! Be sure to not overheat your soap to make the clearest of images...too bad I cannot share some pics (maybe on the FB page?)....great product. Be daring...try will LOVE LOVE it.
ruined soap & hope
by Ev on 4/3/2014
I let the prints to dry for a whole week (just printed in advance and didn't get to use it for a while), so when I sprayed it with a hairspray my colors started to run a little. I had to do many short layers and wait out until it dries out. Anyway, next day I used these prints in my soap. I've got to mention that the same bleeding problem appeared when I tried to slightly spray it with alcohol (as it was recommended in one of the tutorial as I recall) so I proceeded without it. Finished my soap, sealed it, and put away. Now, My Complaint - one week later I took it out ( a friend has ordered a gift basket for a baby shower) the pictures are completely washed out, they became sooooooo blurry, you can barely see anything - just one big ugly stain. All the ingredients used were from you guys, starting from M&P to a mold. Didn't even used any fr. oils in the layers attached to the pictures. So very disappointed!

Hi Ev! I'm sorry to hear that this paper gave you trouble. Sometimes when the ink runs after being sprayed with hairspray, it is a printer issue. We have found Laserjet printers to work the best! We have found that spraying the design with hairspray after a day or two helps prevent this. I will be emailing you personally to help you troubleshoot why you are experiencing these problems :)

Works great!

I love this paper, I've ordered it twice and will be getting again soon. I use the back entry on my printer, let it dry for awhile and do use the hair spray and let it set for a couple days. I put it right in my soap let it float down or use a toothpick carefully to put it where I want it and then I spray it with alcohol. I never have sprayed the paper directly.
I love it!

I've used this paper numerous times and have never had a problem with it. I have an inkjet printer and spray with hairspray. I let the paper sit 24 or more hours before using. I love adding personal messages and scriptures inside my soap!! The only negative comment I have is that it curls when sprayed with hair spray, but that isn't a big deal to me. thanks!!!!
What a waste of money!!
by Rosario on 2/9/2014
Totally agree with Karen. That paper doesn't work . I've used laser-jet printer but it's imposible to remove the paper. How can you say that it is easy to peel off? I think is just impossible but if there is a trick you should tell us. Anyway, I have spent a lot of money from that shop most of them for delivery and tax and it has been such a disappointment because I'm not really happy with some non-bleeding colorants either. I'm very sorry but never again.

Hi Rosario, I'm so sorry to hear this paper didn't work out for you. After you print your designs on the paper, there isn't anything to peel off necessarily -- it's ready to embed into the soap right away! We also recommend spraying the ink with regular hairspray to help set and hold the color. We used this paper in our Holiday Creatures Soap Tutorial, and really enjoyed working with it. Again, thanks for your honest feedback!

Very Disappointed
by Karen on 2/7/2014
I purchased this product with lots of great hopes. I followed the directions to a "T". The ink ran when I sprayed it with the hair spray as directed to "set" the colors after waiting 24 hours. I then waited another 24 hours to cut them out and use them. When I put them in the mold and lightly sprayed with the alcohol as directed, the colors immediately started to blurr and run. The picture ended up all blurry and horrible. I had to melt the soap back down, take out the paper , which was falling into pieces by now, and use the soap for something else. I would never buy this product again. This is not a smooth feeling paper. It is rough, almost feels like toilet paper. So, I kind of wondered how crisp the pictures would come out of the printer. Not clean and crisp pictures at all. I won't purchase this product again. Sorry Brambleberry. This is the first product I have purchased from you that I am extremely disappointed in.

Hi Karen, sorry to hear you had trouble with this! What kind of printer did you use? We recommend a top loading, laser jet printer. Either way, I am sorry to hear this didn't work out, and I know how frustrating that can be. You may find this Soap Queen Tv Video on Water Soluble Paper helpful. We have also featured this paper in our Winter Creatures Tutorial, which may also be helpful to you.
