Darth Maul Bubble Bars

Bubble Bar Recipe

Dry ingredents
1 cup sodium lauryl sulfoacetate (SLSA)
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup corn starch

Wet ingredients
1/2 cup liquid glycerin
1 tbsp oil (I used olive oil)
1 tbsp water
1 tsp fragrance oil (I used OMG Olive)
Red food coloring

Cloves (I got mine at Good Earth)

Black mica or oxide 

First, I put the dry ingredients in my kitchen aid and move on to the wet ingredients. With the wet ingredients you want to first measure them out and then stir them together until all ingredients are well incorporated. This is really important because if you don't mix them first your bubble bars won't stick together. Next, you want to mix wet and dry ingredients. When mixing everything together you will want to cover your kitchen aid because the SLSA can get into the air and make you cough and cause discomfort (some people like to wear a mask when working with SLSA but that is optional). After mixing everything you are ready to mold your bubble bars. Note if your mixture is not sticking together now it won't stick together later so you need to add more glycerin until a dough like consistency is achieved. Now roll your bubble bar dough into a log and cut them into pieces. 

Now its time to decorate your bubble bars. You'll want to mix a little oil with your black mica to make a paint. Then, put your whole cloves on the top of the bar to look like the spikes on Darth Mauls head. Now use your paint mixture to make a design on them to look like the designs on Darth Mauls face.

To use
Hold bubble bar under running water and watch the bubbles form:) Be careful, your tub may become slick when using bath products like this.
