Easter Chick Bath Bomb Projecthttps://www.brambleberry.com/in-the-studio/projects/bath-bombs/easter-chick-bath-bomb-project/PS000239.html
Brighten up your Easter baskets with these adorable chick bath bombs! The 6 Bar Oval Silicone Mold creates the perfect egg shape, and mica painting brings the chick to life. Sunshine Poppies Fragrance Oil adds a cheery floral fragrance that's perfect for spring and beyond.
When making bath bombs in a silicone mold, take time to pack them in firmly. It can also be helpful to wet the mixture with slightly more witch hazel to prevent crumbling when unmolding. We also recommend giving the bath bombs a full 24 hours to dry and harden. Gently push them out from the back of the mold to avoid damaging the shape.
If you've never made mica paint before, it couldn't be easier. Simply mix about 1 teaspoon of mica with 99% isopropyl alcohol. You may find you like to add a little more mica to thicken the mixture, or a little more alcohol to thin it out. The key is finding a texture that you find easy to paint without it being clumpy or too runny.

Easter Chick Bath Bomb Project
These adorable chick bath bombs are perfect for Easter!
20 oz. Baking Soda
10 oz. Citric Acid
1 oz. Chamomile Extract
0.6 oz. Sunshine Poppies Fragrance Oil
0.5 oz. Polysorbate 80
Witch Hazel in a Spray Bottle
Sunset Orange Mica
Super Pearly White Mica
In a large bowl, combine 20 ounces of baking soda and 10 ounces of citric acid. To get rid of clumps in the mixture, you can push the powders through a sifter or break them up with your fingers. Citric acid has a tendency to take off nail polish, so wear gloves to protect your manicure. Thoroughly stir everything together. Add 1.5 teaspoons of Buttercup Mica to the powder and mix.
In a small glass container, add 1 ounce of chamomile extract, 0.6 ounces Sunshine Poppies Fragrance Oil, and 0.5 ounces of polysorbate 80. Use a spoon to mix all the liquids together.
Add the oil mixture to the baking soda and citric acid. Use your hands to thoroughly mix everything together.
Test the consistency of the bath bomb mixture. It should feel similar to wet sand and hold its shape when squeezed. If it’s too dry, use one hand to spritz the mixture with witch hazel and one to mix. Continue spritzing until the mixture holds its shape.
Firmly press the bath bomb mixture into each cavity of the Silicone Oval Mold.
Allow the bath bombs to dry for 24 hours. Remove from the molds.
In separate containers, mix about 0.5 teaspoons of Blue Mica and Sunset Orange Mica with about 1 teaspoon of 99% isopropyl alcohol and stir to get rid of clumps. Then mix about 1 teaspoon of Super Pearly White Mica with about 1 tablespoon of 99% isopropyl alcohol. Test the consistency on a paper towel and adjust as needed.
Create the egg on both top and bottom with the white paint. Then, use a small brush to create the orange beak and outline the egg with orange to creation more definition. Finally, use the blue to give each chick eyes.
Allow the bath bombs to fully dry. When you’re ready to use, drop them into a hot bath and enjoy.
