Tutorial on Making Soap Crayons


I continually see recipes and rave reviews about homemade bath crayons made from soap flakes. What I never note are photos from these individuals who boast or post about the success of these soap crayon recipes. For that reason, I decided to give it a try. This tutorial logs findings based on my intial test.

A follow-up test with modifications is in the works. In the meantime, I believe this tutorial will give you a good idea of what to expect when making soap crayons from soap flakes.

If you have any follow-up comments, email or post on the blog. We have some way-cool soap crayon molds arriving soon and it would be great to have a perfected soap crayon recipe for use with the crayon mold.

A $100 cash-prize is in the works for that one special person providing a proven (GoPlanetEarth staff approved) soap crayon recipe that we can share with our customers. Look for an entry form to be posted soon.

Requirements:

a) crayons must visibly write on porcelain tubs/tiles

b) crayons must be soap based and lather when used as soap

c) contain colors that won't stain skin or tub

d) contain skin safe colors/ingredients

e) sample soaps must be submitted with recipe
