Step 1

Fill heart cookie cutter with clay.

Step 4

Place clay filled cookie cutter on base deck of the press.

Step 5

Turn the Mold Press™ on and allow the plastic sheet to heat until a smooth bubble forms.

Step 6

Turn on the vacuum. Grip the frame in both hands and pull it straight down over the cookie cutter on the base deck. Turn off vacuum. Remove mold from frame.

Step 7

Remove cookie cutter and clay from the mold.

Step 8

Use a glass measuring cup and microwave to melt the soap base. Add essential oil to melted soap base and stir.

Step 9

Divide melted soap base equally into two small jars or cups. Add purple colorant to one jar and stir.

Step 10

Pour both white and purple soaps simultaneously into the heart mold to create marbled effect. Allow to cool completely.
