Just Soap Dentures 2


On Friday I showed you how to make the best looking Jack-o-Lantern soaps and today, we will continue our Halloween themed soaps by making soaps that look just like some dentures!

Collect needed items:

Ingredients
Melt & Pour Glycerin Soap Base (We will use white)
Black Onyx Dry Color
Purple Raspberry Dry Color
Lemon Yellow Dry Color
Liquid Glycerin
Fragrance (Optional)
Equipment
Scale
Glass Beakers for melted soap
Soap Spoon
1 oz Dropper Bottles
Transfer Pipettes
Measuring Spoons
4 cavity Frozen Smiles mold from Fred & Friends
Spray bottle filled with Rubbing Alcohol (70% or 91%)
Micro Spatula, small Dental pick or fine sculpture tool(if needed)

To make these soaps, I did need to do some work just to prepare the colors I would use. I mixed the Black Onyx Dry color with Liquid Glycerin and then mixed well. From now on, I will refer to this as Liquid Black Onyx color. I also created 1 ounce bottles of extra concentrated color by putting 1 teaspoon of the Purple Raspberry Dry Color and Lemon Yellow Dry Color in separate bottles and then topping the bottles off with water. In the rest of the tutorial, I will refer to these as Concentrated Liquid Purple Raspberry and Concentrated Liquid Lemon Yellow. I set the colors aside after mixing for 24 hours before using to make sure there were not any clumps before using these colors.

Melt a small amount of white Melt & Pour Glycerin Soap Base, about 1/2 ounce. This will be the soap we will use for the teeth. Once the soap is completely melted, I added a small sliver of yellow colored soap that had been left over from making the Jack-o-Lanterns. I did this because teeth are not naturally pure white but they do have slight natural discoloration and I wanted my dentures to look as realistic as possible.

Using a transfer pipette, gently fill the small cavities for the teeth. Don’t worry if you accidentally splash. If you do, allow the soap to cool completely and gently pull it off with your small hand tool and toss right back into the beaker. I discovered that the best way to get rid of the any bubbles is to suck them up with the transfer pipette. Remove any bubbles and fill in with white soap to prevent the teeth from looking like there are cavities. Allow the soap to cool completely while you prepare gum colored soap.

Melt about 10 ounces of soap either white or transparent and color it however you desire. I used about 5 drops of Concentrated Liquid Purple Raspberry, 1 drop of Concentrated Liquid Lemon Yellow and 1/4 teaspoon Liquid Black Onyx color. Once the soap has reached the desired color and the teethhave cooled completely, spritz the mold and teeth with rubbing alcohol to allow the layers to adhere. Gently pour a thin layer and set aside. This will prevent the gums from bleeding into the teeth due to the hot soap being poured into the mold. Spritz with alcohol to remove any bubbles and allow to cool. Once the first layer of gum colored soap has cooled, spritz with rubbing alcohol and add more soap till you fill the mold with the desired amount of soap. Spritz with alcohol to remove any bubbles and allow to cool completely.

Gently remove the soap from the molds. Voilà! You now have an amazing set of 4 dentures or 2 whole sets of teeth. Place them in any bathroom to creep out your family and friends!

You can even make vampire, zombie or Swamp Monster teeth! Give it a go and see what you can make!

Enjoy!

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!

    I’m making these and my teeth keep separating from the gums. Any idea how to keep this from happening?

      Sasha,

      Try pouring your “gums” after your teeth have formed a skin but are still soft and warm. This will prevent the colors from mixing but will help them stick better. This will most likely help.

      Best,
      Taylor
