Here is how to create hearts on top of your cold process soap.

Hearts in Cold Process Soap

You’ll need a slow moving cold process soap recipe, squirt bottles and skewers.

The recipe:
Sweet Almond oil – 1.25 oz
Coconut oil – 12.5 oz
Olive oil – 10 oz
Rice Bran oil – 3.5 oz
Shea butter – 2.75 oz
Sunflower oil – 2 oz
Lye – 4.6 oz
Water – 7 oz

Bring your soap to a steady emulsion. You want it to be nice and thin to have time to separate and color your soap.  Divide out your soap for the base and the individual colors.  Put the colors into squirt bottles.  Here is the basic design process inside a single mold but you can do this across the surface of a slab mold as well.

Pour the base into your mold.  Using the squirt bottles, draw dots onto the surface.  You can make them as big or as small as you want.

Using a skewer, draw through the hearts starting from one side of the dot to the other drawing the tail out to complete the motion.  You can even go through many dots in one motion without removing the skewer.  For these I just went in a counter clockwise motion (without removing the skewer).
