Next step shrink wrap oven. (Or whatever they’re called) On the upside they look beautiful!
Well SHOOT! I googled that, seems it’s called a shrink tunnel. Now I want one. Expensive though! I’m not at that volume yet, but holding that heat gun all day is hard!!!

Thank you @MellonFriend ! They were fun to airbrush! I’m learning how to layer those colors.

I googled that too @TashaBird after I commented. Way too expensive for me. But I have a convection oven and wondered if it’s possible to do a tray at a time in the oven. I found all sorts of shrink wrap posts for sublimating tumblers, but have yet to find something appropriate for soap and bath bombs. Maybe the best thing to do is to contact the shrink wrap people and ask them? I’ll put it on my to do list for tomorrow unless I get really impatient and experiment this afternoon. Right now my money is on impatient! 😊

Thank you for shipping my order for the green man and grumpy cloud. I discovered my brother likes to take long soaks in the tub when he is stressed and they are absolutely perfect for him! His sense of humor runs toward pretending to be grumpy with a wink, which family members understand and laugh at.

@TashaBird - I am a soap maker that wants to learn how to make square bath bombs. Just plain ones. The orange squares can actually be cut after dried? Is there a special kind of recipe I need?

I’m not familiar with the ones that can be cut after dried. I always want my dry ones hard as a rock so they don’t break. Can you give me more info? I use a recipe formulated for humid weather from bath fizz and foam website.

I’m so glad your brother likes them! Baths have become a real part of my mental health self care. I really look forward to them!!! And, I think he and I have some similar humors.I’m excited for my next round of bath bombs coming up!!!

Air brushing, painting, performance, embeds, mold types… I love the instant gratification, quick customer return,ease of clean up, and creative potential for making bath bombs! Soap will always be my favorite though!! Here’s some recent things I’ve been up to. I’ve been kind of MIA from the forum because I’m lagging on my soap making with work opening up, and bath bomb making. But thought I’d start a thread and share a few recent makes. I’d love to see any bath bombs you’ve made!!!
that is unreal.... i have no more words

After getting a few soaps made I’m ready for bath bombs again! I’ve got a custom order for a baby shower so I had to get another master batch made. This is 23 batches of my recipe ready to go!

Painted these today. What should have been the easy part was difficult, and what I thought would be difficult was not too bad. I tried to airbrush them with white, but I couldn’t get my airbrushed work so I had to do it by hand. Then painting the math and the eyes by hand was not quite as serious as I expected. I really like how they turned out! And they performed well. I may have on TikTok video of it. This was one of my favorite movies!

Oh, it's the LUCK DRAGON. I LOVE Never Ending Story. Where did you get the mold?

I buy from several suppliers. I joke that shopping for molds is my real hobby. It’s a vacuum form mold, maybe from Morgan’s Corner or Just Fairy Fizzies…. 🤷🏻‍♀️
Oh now I have to go look. That was my all time favorite movie as a kid. Thank you.

I spent HOURS today trying to figure out why my airbrush suddenly stopped working. It triggered my ocd making it super uncomfortable to try and leave it alone. Exhausted and feeling defeated I grabbed a brush and I’m glad I did. I still feel like my skin is crawling with the airbrush mystery unresolved. But, I don’t feel quite as broken. It’s also really hard to get a good photo of black!!
