Decoupage Soaps

Decoupage soaps are very easy to make and are a great craft for all ages.

by Craftbits (Shellie Wilson)

They can be used to decorate cheap blocks of soaps for school fetes or fundraisers.

What you need

Plain blocks of soap.
Some small stickers or cut out pictures for the decoration.
White P.V.A Glue (non toxic)
Paint brush

Instructions

Use Christmas images for your guest bathroom or how about a picture of your child so he or she knows which soap is hers on school camps.

To start this craft choose a image. Use stickers or cut outs to go onto your soap. Take the back of the image and using the PVA glue adhere it to the block of soap.

PVA glue is poly vinyl acetate a white craft glue that dries clear.

Using the paint brush place a layer of glue over the top of the image and the top of the soap. Allow the coat to dry and then apply another coat. Make sure you cover the complete image.
Keep doing this until you have at least 5 coats of PVA glue onto your soap. Allow it to dry each time.

The more coats you apply to the soap and image the longer the image will stay visible in the shower or bath.

To use this soap all you do is wash with it like normal, taking preference to the side with out the image.

This craft is totally safe and Non Toxic. The glue layer containing the glue and image will simply peel away from the soap as the soap is finished.
