Each participant will make their own creation using glycerin based soap and adding colors, glitter and scents. The process does not involve traditional soap making techniques, so there is no lye exposure. Once the concoction has cooled slightly, we will add cosmetic grade glitter, colors, essential oil (optional), embed the rubber toy whales and decorate the tops with white soap curls, to make it look like waves. At the end of the workshop each participant will take their handmade soap home, it can be unmolded the following day and used right away. Soap is approximately 4 oz. with a 2” rubber whale and measurements of 2.75” x 2.75”.
