Pirate Treasures Soaps 2


Yesterday I showed making a creepy critters soap and I thought I would expand on the embedding objects in soap. Today I’ll show making a soap that will have any pirate running off with your soap to hide the treasure.

Collect needed supplies
Transparent Melt and Pour Soap
White Melt and Pour Soap
Plastic Pirate Coins
Fragrance Oil of your choice (I’m using the Sunflower Fragrance Oil)
Mold of your choice (I’m using the Wave Mold)
Transfer Pipettes
Brown Oxide
Yellow Oxide
Microwave safe containers
Isopropyl Alcohol in a spray bottle
Plastic Wrap
Scale (optional)

The mold that I’m using needs about 14 ounces of soap and since I’m using two types, I need to calculate how much soap I need per type. I need 2/3 Transparent Soap (9.5 ounces) and 1/3 White Soap (4.75 ounces). After weighing the soap into separate microwave safe containers, microwave until melted. Once the soap is melted, add fragrance oil. I’m fragrancing the soap at a 1.5% rate. The White soap needs 2.2 mL of Sunflower Fragrance Oil and the Transparent soap needs 4.4 mL of Sunflower Fragrance Oil. Pour the Transparent soap into the molds dividing evenly between the four cavities. Allow the transparent soap to cool a little until a skin forms on top of the soap.

While the transparent soap is cooling, add 1/8 teaspoon of the Brown Oxide and 1/4 teaspoon of the Yellow Oxide to the white soap to make it look a sandy color. Stir and make sure the color is blended well.

Return your attention back to the transparent soap that now has a skin on top. Spray the coins with alcohol and gently stick into the transparent soap at angles that you desire. After you have inserted the coins, allow to cool a little longer. Spray the coins and soap with alcohol and then pour the colored soap over the coins and fill the mold.

Allow the soap to cool completely and then pop the soap out of the mold! Enjoy!

P.S. Remember, you may have pirates raiding your house in search of your treasure stash!

Notes:
When I sprayed my coins with the alcohol, the some of the color came off the coin as I poured soap over it. One way you can prevent this is to dip the coins in transparent soap and allow the dipped coins to cool.

About Andee

I'm a twenty something soap snob. I've grown up with hand made soaps and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!
