Melt & Pour Soap: Minecraft Soap Creeps


My nine-year grandson is a huge fan of Minecraft. As you can see, he has all the Lego Minecraft kits available plus the app on his iPod. He hasn't seen the soaps yet, but when he does, I know he will lay claim to both of them.

The soaps were made using Mold Market's tiled square soap mold. Black colored soap was poured into the tiles to shape the creeper. The remaining tiles were poured in varying shades of green (bright green and Kelly green).

You must be certain that you are pouring at the right temperatures to ensure that the colored black squares don't get left in the mold when you release the soap. I recommend about 10-15 minutes of freezer time before trying to release the mold.

Also be sure to spritz the backside or the tiled squares before filling the remainder of the mold cavity with soap. It will help the tiles to better adhere to the second base pour.

Use clear soap base for this project and scent with your favorite soap fragrance. 13 ounces of soap base will make 3 soaps.
