To make 'FISH IN A BAG' SOAPS - Use for crafts or just great plastic toys. The kids will love it - A great gift idea
Click on the above images for some great ideas - the coloured soaps are made using the pigments and the soap art pieces are made from our workshops - you are buying the fish, but we do have another listing for the entire kit!
Have a look at the above pictures of the fish in a bag and fish in a dish soaps - too cute - Great gifts or start a business!
Make your own Soap Art Soap:
You are getting a selection of fish, take a look at the photo with the ruler to get an idea of size
Approx' 50mm (5cm) - Please note colours and style may vary a little
great for special gifts!
These are the FISH ONLY.
HIGH QUALITY - won't melt or mishape when you add your soap base
Great fun idea for kids parties, school projects or rainy day activities AND you end up with a lovely craft you can use
RUBBER STYLE: Slightly softer than the plastic style, a little bit squishy, can shrink slightly when placed in warm soap base.
*NOTE - These toys are small and may present a choking hazard, not for use for children under 4years of age.
Add a (VERY TINY) drip of Pigment Colour if you want your water slightly coloured
Add a fish to your Bag (We prefer the self seal bags as they have a grip part at the top - preventing your bag of soap from dropping out, this can be easily snipped off once set)
Holding the bag at the top (this is often easier being a 2 person job) carefully pour the melted soap in.
Tie the bag at the top with a Twist Tie Ribbon and hang (I have a plastic indoor clothes hanger with pegs on it that is perfect for this job), you can also place the top weighted under something so it hangs straight down (this bit is important to allow your bag to look like it is filled with water and just ‘hanging’ there once set.
If you fish has gone belly up (looking a bit like a dead fish) this is the perfect time to carefully give a few bends and pokes to get it the right way around. Sometimes it helps to wedge it’s ‘nose’ into the corner which may hold it there.
Alternatively you may like to poke a thin piece of wire through your fish to suspend it in the soap, once the soap is nearly set, carefully pull the wire out of the bag leaving the fish there.
Another alternative is to add a tiny bit of soap to the bag and let it set with the fish poking up, then once set, fill the bag with melted soap and it should hold in the place you left it.
Allow to set
A fantastic gift for kids - at around $1 each, fantastic for school fetes too
