Melt & Pour Soap: Fortune Soap Roll Ups
These roll-up soaps are simple and can be done in under one hour. Pour colored soap into a silicone jelly roll pan. You want a thin layer, about 3/8" to 1/4" thick. Eight ounces of soap will yield 8 roll-ups if using our 8 x 8" jelly roll pan. See the below pattern for how to cut the roll-ups.
We elected to use clear soap base colored with a variety of GoPlanet's Liquid Gel Jewel Tone and Metallic colors. Once the soaps are rolled into shape, lightly dust with powdered mica. We sell the perfect brushes for dusting the mica powders.
Implanting the fortunes inside the roll-up is easy. Once soap is cut into a triangular shape, position a fortune in the middle of the triangle. Be sure the printed fortune is long enough to extend from one end of the soap (see below).
The user pulls out the fortune slip before using in the shower or bath. Consider using these as "one-use" soaps in the ladies room at a wedding reception. There are so many ways to present these lovely soap roll-ups. We would love to hear your ideas. Here is a PDF file (courtesy of GoPlanetEarth) that offers a collection of printable fortune inserts.
