So, last night, I tried to make some and they turned out to be warty monsters... again! I was in a little bit of a bad mood afterwards (read .... cranky old mare) and was determined to try again tonight. I used a two parts bicarb with 1 part citric acid mix with some Sweet Almond Oil and a little fragrance oil. I found some colours I bought about two years ago and they're not great but will do for now.. I have ordered some powdered colours and hoping they arrive soon.
These are tonights attempt - the front oval ones are Spiced Apple and the back, round ones are Pink Grapefruit. I don't think they're TOO bad for an experiment.. do you?
I loved the star pattern on this mould I found on
ebay but the bomb is pretty huge!
Our collection from tonight - these are all
going on holidays with me! I think the white shows
the star off more than the speckled pink
This one is entitled "Titch" cos it's made by my honorary
daughter and that's her nickname
So, for those of you who do make bath bombs regularly, do you have any tips or hints for me? I didn't use water in this, just upped the oil level a tinch more which seemed to work well (better than the tons of water I added last night which made them warty horrors!).
