How to Make Soap Logs and Ribbon Shaped Embeds
In January 2008, GoPlanetEarth discontinued the production of ready-made soap logs and ribbon embeds. We were the only company online offering these types of embeds 'ready-made'. The order volume was overwhelming, and simply put, we just couldn't keep up with production. Since discontinuing the embeds, emails come in daily from customers wanting to know how to make these embeds. My response is always "an instructional is forthcoming". Well, that day has arrived!
We have produced a step-by-step instructional on how to make, not only, these embeds, but how to use them to make a loaf soap. There's also a bonus instructional on how-to make 'soap curls' for use in molded cavities. Printed instructions are in the works and will be posted on our web site shortly.
I definitely recommend purchasing our FLX Melt and Pour soap base when creating these embeds. It has a slower set up time which allows you to manipulate the soap base before it becomes to brittle to shape and form. FLX soap base is available in both clear and white (opaque).
