I have seen then at places like Michaels & Hobby Lobby. I think you can also get them at orientaltrading.com

They are empty Christmas ornamanets. They were made to be filled w/ candy or silk flowers, etc.

I guess you can using any plastic hold as a mold. Like for Valentines day you could use those plastic hearts that come filled with candy...

I tried using rubbing alcohol today instead of witch hazel and it worked a zillion times better...

With rubbing alcohol they harden MUCH better... And no, it didn't cause the batch to fizz, I was actually able to add more alcohol (the 70% kind) than witch hazel, so I had NO crumbling when I un molded.

That video was sooo funny (especially the bloopers!) but very informative as well. I definetely marked it in my faves!

Thanks for posting it. I had purchased some FOs from coastal scents in the past but it's been awhile. I believe I like them?

I think rubbing alcohol works so much better! I don't think I could ever go back to witch hazel. I havent had a bad batch since! ..I wonder why recipes are always posted using witch hazel????

I made 4 batches tonight after watching the video again. I now see I was using too much oil & that is why it took so long to dry/harden & sometimes they didn't harden.

I purchased bombs in bulk from coastal to sell in my shop once when I decided I would give up on bombs for good.

I believe I will start making them again, at least a couple times a year.

So, the clay is supposed to prevet cracking.... wondered what it was for other tha label appeal.

In the batches I just made I omitted the clay but added 1 tsp shea. I will have to try one out & report back.
