M&P Citrus Slices - Part A



Citrus Slice 1a 2048x1536


This project is a little more difficult than it looks. You have to work quite quickly in some areas as the soaps sets up fast.
Citrus slice 1
You will need:
Clear  M&P Base (this depend on how big your moulds are and how many you want to make.)
White/ opaque M&P Base (a small amount to cover the slices).
Determine how big your mould is by putting it on a scale and pouring water into one of the cavities.
Colour – I used red and yellow mixed to make orange.
Fragrance – 1.5 % of the soap base
Round drain/down pipe
Plastic mould with round indentations
Microwave Jugs
Rubbing Alcohol to spray bubbles away
Method:
  1. Prepare your drainpipe mould by covering the bottom so the soap does not leak out.
  2. Melt your clear soap base in the microwave in 30 second bursts. When melted add your colour (I added 1 drop red and 2-3 yellow) and fragrance and stir gently.
  3. Pour carefully into your drainpipe mould and spritz with the rubbing alcohol to remove any bubbles.
  4. Allow the tube of soap to harden for about 1-2 hours.
  5. Once the soap is hard remove it from the circular mould and cut into citrus segments.
