Has anyone tried make CP Soap Crayons?

I saw a video where they were made with M&P and Lab Colors and while I'm okay with buying M&P for the project (for the grandkids), the colorants aren't exactly cheap given the amount you need to use to get a brilliant color, and if the kids don't like them, then I have nothing else to use them for.

I'm really hoping that I can just use my Regular Soap recipe and use colorants I have on the shelves. I have a couple of dozen tubes from another [stupid] idea that didn't pan out.

Hadn't heard of these till now. Please let me know if you try them, and how the kids liked them.

I've decided that I'm just going to go with my regular recipe and then double up on whatever colorants I use...mostly pigments, oxides, ultramarines. I think I will start with six colors...red, purple, green, blue, yellow and whatever else looks good.

I hope you'll let us know how this turns out. My son loved playing with soap crayons in the tub when he was little. :tub:

Who knows, maybe his big grownup self might still like them... :nodding:

@TheGecko I searched soap crayons and found your thread. How did it turn out? I bought some melt and pour I’m going to try. Did you use a higher concentration of colorant than usual?

This is the only video I found that Is close to what I was thinking of making. But I’m wondering, can we use mica instead of the lab color she’s using?

There was a time, maybe 10 years ago, where CP/HP Soap Crayons were popular. There was a "fat" crayon mold made for that purpose. I did not make them, but they were so cute I was tempted. 😁

That won't be a problem. Kids love them as much as a rubber ducky or other toys in the tub at bath time.

Thanks. Google was showing mostly crayons made with old shaved soap. And my search here was showing mostly folks coloring soap with shaved crayons. I’ll try title search.

@TashaBird Oopsie! I tried to respond to your post in the MP Crayon Soap thread but something went wrong. It may have been deleted or moved. :smallshrug:

Here's what I wrote:
No worries! "Necroposting" is asking a question or making a comment on an old thread, thus reviving it for discussion. Until very recently, it was frowned upon. But now, in their wisdom, the Admin/Mods no longer consider it a "no-no". You were absolutely free to continue that old thread.

To delete, simply erase your post and replace it with "deleted" -- you have to put something in there or the "Save" feature won't work. You can only do that for what you wrote, not the whole thread. For deleting what others wrote, use the Report button to ask that it be deleted and wait. It may take some time for a Admin/Mod to take care of it.

You're not messing up! Not at all!
