2. Pour the soap into the heart molds and allow to cool completely. You may wish to place the mold tray in the refrigerator to cool.




3. Once the hearts have cooled, pop them out of the molds by pressing down on the backs of the molds with your thumbs.

4. Heat the soap base you will be using for the overpour and add color and fragrance as desired. Tip: You can use a clear base with no color or an opaque base with little or no color for more contrast.




5. Place a heart in the center of the mold, flat side down. If you are using a plain mold, you can place multiple hearts throughout the mold.

6. Allow your melted soap base to cool to at least 140 degrees F to prevent the embedded heart from bleeding.
