October is here which means Halloween just around the corner! We’re excited to decorate our shop and make it more suitable for the occasion, but while we were taking all the old props out of their storage boxes, we got the idea to make some that can be used for other purposes as well 👻
To make your own eyeball soaps, you’ll need:
- 35g of Opaque Glycerin Soap Base (per eyeball)
- 15g of Crystal Glycerin Soap Base (per eyeball)
- Round Ball Soap Mold
- Melt and Pour Soap Dyes
- 99.8% Isopropyl Alcohol
- Knife or Soap Cutter
- Glass Beakers
- Digital Scale
- Cut 15g of Crystal Glycerin Soap Base into small cubes. Take 5g and melt it in a glass beaker using the double boiler method.
- Once melted, add in drops of black soap pigment until desired color intensity is achieved.
- Pour this into the Round Ball Soap Mold and set aside for it to cool and harden. This will be the pupil of the eyeball soap.
- Once the pupil layer has hardened, melt the remaining 10g of Crystal Glycerin Soap Base in a new glass beaker. Add in drops of any soap pigment until desired color intensity is achieved.
- Scratch the surface of the pupil layer with a toothpick and spritz with 99.8% Isopropyl Alcohol. Then, pour the melted soap over the pupil layer to create the iris layer.
- Cut 35g of Opaque Glycerin Soap Base into small cubes. Melt in another glass beaker using the double boiler method.
- Scratch the surface of the hardened iris layer with a toothpick and spritz with 99.8% Isopropyl Alcohol. Then, quickly insert the other part of the mold and pour the melted soap to create the rest of the eyeball.
- Set aside to cool and harden for a few hours before unmolding.
