Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Preparing Supplies and Work

Before you begin creating your colorful bubble bar you are going to want to prepare a few things. First, you should make sure that your work space is clear and clean. This will ensure that you have plenty of room to work. Also, you should have all your equipment is clean and ready to use. Just a simple wash will help to prevent dust or dirt from getting into your recipe. Further, it may help to have all of your equipment and supplies nearby. This will make it easier to create your craft, as you won’t have to go far to find what you need.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Combining the Dry Ingredients Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Combining the Dry Ingredients

First, you are going to need to measure all of the dry ingredients for this recipe. You will need a large mixing bowl and a gram scale. Then, weigh 460 grams of baking soda, 410 grams of sodium cocoyl isethionate, 224 grams cream of tartar, and 72 grams of corn starch. After all your ingredients have been added you will need to mix it all together. Also, you should try to break up any clumps.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing the Wet IngredientsRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing the Wet Ingredients

Next, you are going to combine all of the wet ingredients for this bubble bars. You will need to add these to your large mixing bowl with the dry ingredients. You can either weigh these ingredients into a separate bowl first or weigh everything directly into the mixing bowl. So, you will need to add 200 grams of the vegetable glycerin, 24 grams of the safflower oil, and 14 grams of the Rain Fragrance Oil to the mixture.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Mixing Everything TogetherRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Mixing Everything Together

Now that both wet and dry ingredients are included, you can begin mixing your dough. You will need to make sure that you break up any clumps and continue until you have the right consistency. If you don’t get a doughy consistency after mixing everything together well, then you can add a bit more vegetable glycerin. You can tell that you need more when the dough is crumbly. However, you want to be careful not to add too much, as it will not set up properly when it is too wet.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Separating the Bubble Bar Dough

After everything has been mixed together you are going to separate the batch into five equal portions. You can eyeball the amounts, but you should have about 280 grams of the dough in each of the five mixing bowls.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Red Colored PortionRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Red Colored Portion

Now that your dough has been separated you can grab one of these portions to color. So, you will need to add 10 drops of the Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant along with 5 drops of the Neon Red FUN Soap Colorant. After both of these colorants have been added you will need to use your gloved hands to mix the color in evenly. After you have a bright red hue throughout this portion you can roll it into a ball and set it aside for now.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding Orange ColorantRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding Orange Colorant

Next, we are going to create the orange portion of this recipe. So, grab one of the unused mixing bowls to add 10 drops of the Neon Orange FUN Soap Colorant. Then, you will need to use gloved hands to fully incorporate the soap colorant. After all the color is evenly distributed roll the dough into a ball and set this portion aside.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Creating the Yellow Portion

Now, we are going to mix up the yellow portion of this recipe. Grab one of the uncolored portions of the bubble bar. Then, you will need to add 5 drops of the Neon Yellow FUN Soap Colorant. You will need to mix the color into the batch until it is evenly distributed throughout the entire portion. Then, you can roll up the yellow dough and set it aside.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Green PortionRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Green Portion

Then, we will need to mix the green portion of the batch. So, retrieve one of the two remaining uncolored portions. You need to add 5 drops of the Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant to the bowl. After you add your colorant to the batch, you will need to mix everything together. So, use your gloved hand to evenly disperse the color. Once you are finished, you can roll this into a ball and set it aside for now.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Purple Colorant Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Purple Colorant

Finally, we are going to create the purple portion of our bubble bar. So, grab your last uncolored portion of the recipe. You will add 5 drops of the Deep Purple FUN Soap Colorant. Now, mix the colorant into the batter using your gloved hands. Once the color is even in the dough you can roll it into a ball and set aside.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Getting Ready to Roll ColorsRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Getting Ready to Roll Colors

Now that are the layers are colored we are going to need to get ready to roll everything. You will either need a silicone mat or a piece of parchment paper. Next, lightly dust the mat or paper with some baking soda. This will help keep your bubble bar from sticking as you pick up and roll the layers.  You also should dust your rolling pin with baking soda so the dough doesn’t stick to that either.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Rolling Out the First Layer Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Rolling Out the First Layer

Just like a real rainbow, we are going to have the red on the outside. So, grab your ball of red dough from its bowl. You can set this dough ball in the center of your sheet or mat. Then, roll the ball into a flat, rectangle shape.  Also, make sure that you leave this layer about a quarter inch thick. Remember that as you add more layers this initial layer will continue to get thinner.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Laying Down the Orange LayerRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Laying Down the Orange Layer

Next, we are going to add the orange layer to the bubble bar. So, take your rolled up orange ball of dough. Place this orange ball right on top of the previous layer. Roll the orange layer to match the shape of the red layer. You don’t need to be exact, but make sure that you have a similar shape and are near the edges.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Rolling the Yellow Layer Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Rolling the Yellow Layer

Now, you are going to create the yellow layer of your bubble bar. You will need to take the rolled up yellow portion and place it on the orange layer. As you can see, we didn’t have a rolling pin available and got creative. You can use a rolling pin effectively, but we used our 16 oz bottle of Safflower Oil to roll our dough. Either way, you will need to roll the yellow similarly to the previous layers.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Rolling the Green Layer

Then, you will be ready to create the green layer for your bubble bar recipe. You will need to take the green ball of dough and add it to the center of your yellow layer. Now, you will need to roll out this green layer until it is about the same shape and nearly at the edges.

 

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Creating the Final Layer

Finally, you are going to add your purple layer to your bubble bar. So, place your ball of purple to the center of the previous layer. You will need to roll out this layer similarly to the other layers. While blue would’ve gone between the green and purple layers, we were worried about adding too many layers. Since every added layer will make the layers beneath it thinner, we didn’t want stretch the layers too thin. If you would like you can try to include this layer, but you are going to need to be super careful with rolling your layers.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Wrapping Up the Bubble BarRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Wrapping Up the Bubble Bar

Now that all your layers are added, you are ready to roll them into a loaf. So, turn your layers so that the mat or paper is vertical. Then, take the edge that is closest to you and slowly roll the dough the same way that you would wrap up a jelly roll. Be careful to roll the dough evenly as you go to make sure that it is lined up.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Slicing Your Finished ProductRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Slicing Your Finished Product

Lastly, you will need to slice your bubble bar loaf into individual bars. You will want each one to be somewhere between 1 and 2 inches thick. So, you should end up with about 8 slices. But this can vary slightly depending on the thickness of your slices. After all of your loaf has been sliced you will need to let the bubble bars set up. Simply separate the slices a bit and let them sit in one place for some time. This process can take between 48 and 72 hours. This time will vary based on your climate, but you will be able to tell that your batch has completely set up because they will become hard.

Once your bubble bars have set up they will be ready to use! All you have to do is crumble one under some warm, running bath water. Then, you will be all set for a fun rainbow bath.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Find A Rainbow DayRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Find A Rainbow Day

According to the National Day Calendar, National Find A Rainbow Day is on April 3rd every year.  Even though I am always so happy to find a bright, beautiful rainbow up in the sky, I didn’t know there was a national day for finding them. They are such a beautiful sight with all the lovely colors and grandness of the size. So, I hope I can find one this year.
