Tips for Making Hulk Smash Bath Bombs at Home
We have a complete guide to making your own bath bombs at home, so if this is your first time working with this medium, be sure to read it carefully.
Making bath bombs is oftentimes thought of as a daunting task, but it’s actually quite easy. Below are some tricks to make the process easier for you.
The first thing to consider before even starting to make your bath bomb is what type of mold to use. When it comes to bath bomb molds, there are a lot of options out there. While metal is easy to work with, silicone ones seem more practical and are a cinch to clean. For these bath bombs, we opted to use metal.
If you are using a metal bath bomb mold to make these DIY Hulk Bath Bombs, smash the bath bombs side by side in the mold. If placed together top to bottom they will be more likely to fall apart when removed from the mold.
When you are mixing your ingredients, it’s important to mix the wet ingredients together really well initially. Then add the citric acid and other dry ingredients. This way you won’t have any issues with crumbly bath bombs or rushing to beat the fizz.
And lastly, it is always a good idea to let your bath bomb sit in the mold overnight to dry.
After you have made your bath bombs, protect them from humidity by storing them in an airtight container.
How to Make the Hulk Bath Bombs
Let’s get crafting! Below is our written tutorial.
- 1 1/2 cup baking soda
- 3/4 cup citric acid
- 1 tbsp bentonite clay
- 1 tbsp epsom salts
- 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
- 1/2 tsp essential oil blend desired
- 1/2 tbsp polysorbate 80 (to keep the colorant from sticking to the bathtub)
- 1 tsp purple mica powder
- 1 tsp green mica powder
- 2-4 tablespoons green and purple sprinkles blend
- 1/2 tsp alcohol
- 1/2 tsp cornstarch
- 4-5 mini bath bomb molds
- Whisk together the baking soda, citric acid, clay and epsom salts.
- In a second bowl, combine the melted coconut oil, essential oil blend and polysorbate 80 together, mixing well.
- Add liquid ingredients 1 tsp at a time to the dry ingredients, mixing it together slowly so as not to start the fizzy reaction.
- Split the mixture into two bowls and, to one bowl, add the green mica powder and stir until the color is consistent throughout. If you would like a more intense color, add more mica powder in 1 tsp increments, stirring between each increment until you have a dark color. Keep in mind that the color will fade a little when the mixture dries.
- To the second bowl, add the purple mica powder and stir until the color is consistent throughout. If you would like a more intense color, add more mica powder in 1 tsp increments, stirring between each increment until you have a dark color. Keep in mind that the color will fade a little when the mixture dries.
- Dust the bottom of one side of the bath bomb mold with cornstarch. The sprinkle side tends to come out on its own, so do not bother to dust that side with cornstarch.
- Place about 1 tsp of sprinkles in the non-dusted side of the bath bomb mold.
- Immediately pack each side of the bath bomb mold with the mixture. Pack extra bath bomb mixture between the two molds, then press the two sides together, grinding and pressing them to force the two together.
- Allow the bath bombs to rest in the mold for up to 24 hours before gently tapping the top and side of the mold to release the bombs.
- Use your bath bombs immediately or store in an airtight container until you’re ready to use!
