Snowman Soap


This soap is actually a combination of 3 soaping techniques; CP, HP & MP. The soap itself is cold process, the snowman is hot process and his carrot nose is made from melt and pour soap. I made the snowman using the same technique as the Polar Bear Soap. I don't know how well the noses are going to stick to the soap, I may have to 'glue' them on using a pipette and a bit of melt and pour soap. I brushed a little bit of cotton candy mica onto his cheeks to give him that rosy glow!

When I was making this, I had in mind that I wanted to get a Tiffany blue, but I gave up because I just couldn't seem to get the right color. When I put it in the mold last night the blue was this color:
(By the way, if you like dessert tofu (Sunrise brand), those little containers make great individual soap molds...that is what I used for these snowman soaps) :)

I was pleasantly surprised when I unmolded the soap this morning and saw that the blue had turned closer to a Tiffany blue, probably from the discoloration of the fragrance oil....lucky break!


I hope everyone is having a nice, relaxing weekend....thanks for reading!

  1. Hey Cee,it's amazing! Did you swirl the whole soap,or just tops?
    Great idea to use this cake container as a soap mold! From the picture I don't see any lining,did you put some glycerin in order to pop them out easily,or not?
    I love the colours and the snowmen are charming!

    1. Hi Maja, thanks! I spooned the soap colors into the mold and then swirled the whole soap, but the tops are more swirled than the bottoms. I don't have to line these molds at all, the soaps just pop right out! I do use sodium lactate in my soap, so that might help. I have reused these molds many times and they are still holding up just fine :)

  2. Super cute! I had thought to make the snowman faces myself but ran out of time this year. It is so cool to see what they might have looked like! They look awesome and even cuter within the swirled bar. BRAVO!
