Just in time for Halloween and the ‘Day of the Dead’ Festival, this #makeit is a re-fresh on last year’s ‘Loaded Bath Bomb’ recipe that showcases our popular skull bath bomb mould. We’ve had some recent feedback asking us to demonstrate how to use our 2 piece plastic moulds, so hopefully our re-vamped step by step guide below will show you the TSK method!
These gorgeous bath bombs make great alternative gifts for Halloween enthusiasts!
What you need:
- Measuring spoons
- Accurate scales
- Skull bath bomb moulds x 4 sets
- *Optional* Round bath bomb moulds
- Water in a Spray Bottle
- 600g Bicarbonate of soda
- 200g Citric acid
- 25ml Blackcurrant and Pomegranate fragrance
- Black coated mica
- Rose Petals
Measure out the bicarb and citric into a bowl.
Add 25ml of fragrance. Use your hands to blend the fragrance in to the bicarb and citric. Mix thoroughly and work away any lumps that may have formed.
Use a teaspoon to add the Black pigment. Add a small amount at a time to determine how dark you would like your bath bombs.
Give everything a good mix with your hands to ensure the fragrance and colour pigment has completely blended in.
grab your bath bomb mixture and using the hand sprayer, a little at a time and working the mixture as you. Make sure you mix continuously to avoid it fizzing-up in the bowl and ONLY ADD ENOUGH WATER TO HAVE THE MIXTURE START TO HOLD TOGETHER WHEN LIGHTLY SQUEEZED IN YOUR HAND.
Place your rose petals in to the forehead section of your mould.
Now fill the rest of each half of your mould just proud of the surface and press together for a few moments. You can move and adjust the mould halves whilst holding them both together to ensure that they are both aligned.
Tidy up the edges and leave the skull bath bomb to dry in it’s mould until it is completely solid.
