Soap Dough

Soap dough is so easy to create for cp soapers who already know how to make cold process soap.  Simply use a 5% superfat and your water at 2.5 times your lye. If a softer dough is desired, use 3 times water to lye. This soap does not go through gel phase. Put your recipe through the soap calculator.

Once the soap comes to a light trace, divide it into how many colors you wish and add your color and stir until there are no clumps.  Store in plastic cups with lids or plastic wrap.

Do not let air touch your soap dough when storing.  You can wrap in plastic wrap and put into bags upon unmolding.

The fun begins when molding your own creations such as small owls, flowers, bird nests or anything to embellish your soap. Small cookie cutters can also be used.
