ingredients and soap molds needed to make soap shooters

 
Step 1: Take 12 ounces of cubed Ultra Clear Melt and Pour soap base and place in a microwave safe glass container. Melt in the microwave in 30-second bursts until melted. Be careful, boiling your soap base will result in a poor quality rubbery soap.

Step 2: The soap base is left un-colored. Using a disposable pipette, add 4 ml of Sex on the Beach Fragrance Oil to the soap base and stir slowly. Note: the soap base may appear cloudy at first; however, just keeps stirring slowly and the soap will clear right up again.

Step 3: Take the Cool Shooters Silicone Mold and pour 3 oz of the clear scented soap base into each cavity. Make sure your cavity is right side up!

Step 4: Spritz soap with alcohol to remove any bubbles that may have formed while pouring.

Step 5: Wait for your soap “shot glasses” to set completely before attempting to remove. Working with silicone is great, but the soap will take a little longer to set. I waited 1 hour and then popped them into the freezer. After 5 – 10 minutes, I was able to easily take them out of the silicone mold.

Step 6: Now that your “glass” is all set, it’s time to pour the “drink” portion of your soap. Take 6 ounces of the Ultra Clear Melt and Pour soap base and place in a microwave safe glass container. Melt in the microwave in 20-second bursts until melted. Split your melted soap base into 3 containers, 2 oz in each.

Step 7: After the melted soap base has been separated, using your disposable pipette, add 1 ml of the Sex on the Beach fragrance oil to each container and stir slowly.

Step 8: Next, to each container of soap base, add 3 drops of soap colorant and stir slowly. 3 drops of True Red, 3 drops of Lime and 3 drops of Peach.

Step 9: Use a thermometer to monitor the soap base temperature, it should be about 130° or cooler to avoid melting your “shot glass” soap. If soap base is too warm, keep stirring slowly until soap reaches 130°.

Step 10: Spritz your “shot glasses” with alcohol to ensure that the layers adhere together.

Step 11: Pour the colored soap base into each cavity making sure that you don’t pour all the way to the top. Leave about 1/2 inch of space at the top.

pour orange base into each glass, leaving that same 1/2 inch space at the top

 

pour red base into final glass, leaving 1/2 inch of space at the top

 
Step 12: Optional: Spritz with alcohol to remove bubbles from the top of your poured soap. You may want to leave the bubbles to give it a more authentic “drink” look.

Step 13: Allow to completely set – approximately 1 hour.
