Soapmakers: Are intricate designs and fancy swirls not part of your skill set? Soap stamps can turn plain, solid color soap into works of art - and they are so easy!
Stamp soaps when they are firm enough to cut but not squishy; each recipe is different so some testing and experimenting will be necessary. Stamps have a flat back so a rubber mallet can be used to strike the stamp. "Paint" stamp impressions with ordinary cocoa powder, colored clay, zinc oxide, or other water soluble dry colorants. Spray a stamped soap with isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol and use a small paintbrush to brush on the dry powder, swirl the brush around to mix with the alcohol, then wipe off the excess with a paper towel.
Stamps are made out of durable acrylic, to make sharp impressions and resist sticking to soap. All designs are original art exclusive to Posey and Fern.
