What’s even better than regular jelly soap? A custom jelly soap that is made in the EXACT shape you want it to be! You can make a DIY soap mold with silicone paste, and then use that mold to make as many soaps as your heart desires! Check out just how to do it:
You will need a few supplies to make your own silicone mold. I have started working with ETI, so I used their EasyMold kit to create my soap mold. I have linked to all the products I used in my tutorial at the end of this post.
You will need to start by mixing together equal amounts of the two parts of the Easy Mold Silicone Paste. Stir them together until the paste is a uniform blue color. Then use a cheap paintbrush to paint a bit of the silicone paste all over the object you want to make a mold of. For me, it was a dollar store duck figurine.
Scoop about 2/3 of the mixture into a paper cup that is larger than the object you are making a mold of. Push the object down into the paste. Scoop the remaining silicone paste around the object until it is almost fully covered. Allow the silicone to cure for 3 hours.
After the silicone has cured, you can peel the paper cup away from the silicone and throw it out. Carefully cut down two sides of the silicone to release the object from the mold.
You now have a perfect mold that you can use to make custom soaps. Come back tomorrow to see how to use this DIY soap mold to make rubber ducky jelly soap!
