Magnolia Soap Projecthttps://www.brambleberry.com/in-the-studio/projects/melt-and-pour/magnolia-soap-project/PS000263.html
These soaps are made in the Rose Silicone Mold. But with carefully placed yellow soap, they're transformed into magnolias! They're scented with Magnolia Leaf and Tonka Fragrance Oil, which is a deep and sultry scent. Vanilla Color Stabilizer helps prevent discoloration and keeps each bar bright white.
Droppers and a clean-up tool come in handy for this project. They help place the soap and then correct any mistakes. A thermometer is also a great tool to have - once you're ready to pour the white soap, it needs to be under 130° F to prevent melting the yellow details.
Speaking of the yellow, we used three Color Blocks to achieve the perfect shade. We recommend first adding the yellow and orange to achieve a rich color, then adding tiny shavings of brown to create a slightly deeper shade.

Magnolia Soap Project
These sophisticated bars are scented with Magnolia Leaf and Tonka Fragrance Oil.
4 Cavity Rose Silicone Mold
16 oz. Buttermilk Melt and Pour Soap Base
0.3 oz. Magnolia Leaf and Tonka Fragrance Oil
0.3 oz. Vanilla Color Stabilizer
Yellow Color Block
Perfect Orange Color Block
Brown Oxide Color Block
99% Isopropyl Alcohol in a Spray Bottle
Chop 16 ounces of Buttermilk Melt and Pour Soap Base into small, uniform cubes. Place them in a heat-safe container and melt in the microwave using 20-30 second bursts.
Split off about 2-3 ounces of melted soap into a small container and add small shavings of the Yellow, Perfect Orange, and Brown Oxide Color Block until you get the right shade. Stir to fully incorporate. If the blocks aren't melting, place the container in the microwave and heat using 5 second bursts. Be careful to not overheat the soap. Tip: Start with shavings of Yellow and Perfect Orange Color Block. Then, add very small bits of Brown Oxide Color Block to deepen the shade.
Spray the mold with 99% isopropyl alcohol - this helps the soap flow into the details easily. Working quickly and carefully, use the dropper to fill in the first 2-3 folds in the center of the flower. Use a clean-up tool to correct any mistakes. If the soap starts to cool, reheat in the microwave using 3-5 second bursts. Tip: Keep spraying alcohol as you work to pop bubbles and help the soap flow into the details.
Allow the yellow details to fully cool and harden. Add 0.3 ounces of Magnolia Leaf and Tonka Fragrance Oil and 0.3 ounces of Vanilla Color Stabilizer to the remaining melted soap. Mix in completely.
Check the temperature of the soap base. It should be about 125-130° F when you pour. If it's too hot, it can melt the yellow details. Allow to cool if necessary. Once it's the correct temperature, spray the mold with 99% isopropyl alcohol and pour the soap into each cavity.
Allow the soap to cool and harden for 3-4 hours. Remove from mold and enjoy!
