Rose Clay Milk Soap Projecthttps://www.brambleberry.com/in-the-studio/projects/melt-and-pour/rose-clay-milk-soap-project/PS000172.html
This recipe is made with Goat Milk Melt and Pour Soap Base, which is moisturizing and great for those with dry or sensitive skin. To help the details really pop, a small amount of SFIC Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base is mixed with rose clay and piped into the mold. The bars are scented with Ginger Patchouli Fragrance Oil. It's a unique blend of mandarin, herbs, and clove.
This project is suitable for beginners, but filling in the mold details takes a little bit of patience and a steady hand. The details in the mold were specially designed to be deep, which makes the process easier. An infrared thermometer is recommended - if the second layer of soap is poured into the mold while it’s still really hot, it can melt the details below.
- Skill Level: Beginner
- Time to Complete: 1 hour
- Kit Yields: About 2 pounds of soap
Rose Clay Milk Soap Project
Try this simple and skin-loving project today. It's made with Goat Milk Melt and Pour Base and scented with Ginger Patchouli Fragrance Oil.
Pure Soap Silicone Tray Mold
32 oz. Goat Milk Melt and Pour Soap Base
4 oz. Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base
0.9 oz. Ginger Patchouli Fragrance Oil
1 tsp. Rose Clay
99% Isopropyl Alcohol in a Spray Bottle
Clean Up Tool
Note: This project was originally made with the Milk Soap Silicone Try Mold which was discontinued. Pure Soap Silicone Tray Mold creates a similar bar but it will look different from the photos below.
In a small container, mix 1 teaspoon of rose clay into 1 tablespoon of isopropyl alcohol. This will help the clay mix into the soap without clumping. Cut 4 ounces of Clear Melt and Pour into small, even pieces. Place the soap in a heat-safe container and melt on 5 second bursts. Add 1 tablespoon of dispersed clay and mix to fully incorporate.
Cut a very small amount off the tip of an injector tool. You still want the hole of the injector tool to be small, but making it slightly larger helps prevent clogging. Fill a small cup with very hot water and have it nearby while you fill in the details of the mold with white soap. Use it to clear the injector tool if the soap begins to cool and harden in the tip.
Spritz 99% isopropyl alcohol into the mold details to help the soap flow into them more smoothly. Using the injector tool, begin piping the soap into the border and milk lettering. If the soap starts to harden while you’re filling in the details, pop it back into the microwave for 5 seconds. When the details are full of soap, spritz again with alcohol to get rid of bubbles. You will have a few ounces of leftover red soap - pour that into a separate mold.
When the soap is firm after about 5-10 minutes, use the clean-up tool to remove any spills.
Cut 32 ounces of Goat Milk Melt and Pour into small, even pieces. Place them in a large heat-safe container and melt in the microwave using 30 second bursts. Add 0.9 oz. of Ginger Patchouli Fragrance Oil and stir to fully incorporate.
When the white soap is around 125-130° F, spritz the red soap with 99% isopropyl alcohol to help the layers stick. Slowly and carefully pour the white soap in the mold and spritz with alcohol to pop any bubbles. Let the soap harden for 4 hours or overnight. Unmold, cut into 8 bars along the score marks and enjoy! To avoid glycerin dew, wrap them immediately in plastic wrap or another airtight packaging option.
