The inner silicone mold dimensions in inches are (L x W x H): 10x3x2.7 and the outer wood box dimensions are:11×3.5×3.2 and holds approximately 3 pounds of soap. If you cut the soap at approximately 1 inch thickness you will get 10 – 4.2-ounce bars.
How To Make Goat Milk Soap Candy Corn Style
Start by cutting your goat milk soap melt into cubes and add 20 cubes into one of the bowls.
Next cut the clear glycerin soap into cubes. Add 20 cubes into each of the remaining two bowls.
White Soap Layer
To the bowl with goat milk soap melt add 1 tablespoon of Vitamin E oil and 1.5 teaspoons of candy corn fragrance (add more fragrance if you want a stronger smelling soap).
Place the bowl in the microwave and turn on high for 30 second intervals. Stir after each 30 seconds. Repeat until the soap is completely melted.
Spray the soap mold with the rubbing alcohol. Then pour the melted soap mixture into the mold. Spray the top of mixture with rubbing alcohol to prevent bubbles in your soap.
Sprinkle a bit of glitter if desired. Allow to harden for at least 15-20 minutes. You know you can pour the next layer if you blow on the soap and it doesn’t ripple.
Orange Soap Layer
Place one of the glycerin soap bowls in microwave. Melt in 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval until it is completely melted.
Add 1 or 2 drops of orange colour and mix well until desired color is achieved.
Spray the top of the white layer with the rubbing alcohol. This helps the layers adhere to each other. Now carefully pour the orange layer on top of the white layer. Spray the top of orange layer with rubbing alcohol. Allow it to harden for at least 30-45 minutes. You know you can pour the next layer if you blow on the soap and it doesn’t ripple.
Yellow Soap Layer
Take the final bowl with the glycerin soap cubes. Melt in the microwave in 30 second intervals, mixing in between, until completely melted.
Add 1 or 2 drops of yellow colour and mix well, add more and mix until desired colour is achieved.
Spray the top of the orange layer with rubbing alcohol, then carefully pour the yellow mix into the mold.
Spray the top of the yellow layer with rubbing alcohol to prevent bubbles.
Leave it to set overnight. The next day, carefully pop the soap brick out of the mold. Cut into one inch thick slices. A cutter comes with the mold that you can use for this step.
To make your soap more candy corn shaped, use a large, sharp knife and cut the slices into triangles.
Voila! Candy Corn Soap that is amazing for your drying, fall skin.
