instructions

1

melt the desired amount of glycerin (a small amount, for just your first layer) in a microwave-safe measuring cup. use transluscent or opaque glycerin base.

2

color the melted glycerin with a few drops of soap colorant.

tip!

start by heating for 30 seconds, then continue in 10-second intervals until it is  liquid.

3

use a funnel to pour the first layer of soap into your Popsicle mold.

tip! this layer should be thick to hold your Popsicle stick in place.

4

spritz a bit of rubbing alcohol onto the poured glycerin to avoid air bubbles. let harden for 20 minutes.

5

place the cover on top and insert a wooden Popsicle stick in the first layers. let sit for 20 minutes until secure.

6

repeat steps 1-4 to create your next color layer.

7

continue adding colorful layers until the mold is full. refrigerate for several hours.

8

remove the finished soapsicle from the mold by dipping the mold into a bowl
of hot water to soften the edges (less than
a minute). now squeeze the mold gently and “pop” your soapsicle out!
