Clean and sanitize your work station and all of your utensil. It is suggested that you wear gloves, an apron, a face mask, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.
Step 1: First, you will need to blend your dry ingredients. In a deep mixing bowl, add your sodium cocoyl isethionate, cream of tartar, baking soda, and corn starch. Blend the ingredients using your hands to mix. Break up any clumps you find in the mixture.
Step 2: In a separate small bowl, add your wet ingredients. Blend your vegetable glycerin, pumpkin seed oil, and Harvest Moon Fragrance Oil.
Step 3: Now, add your liquid ingredients to the bowl containing the powdered ingredients. Use your hands to mix the ingredients together completely. Continue to mix until you have a dough consistency. Note: If your dough is too dry and crumbles, you can add a little more vegetable glycerin. However, use caution, adding too much will make your dough too wet and it may not setup properly.
Step 4: To the mixture, add 20 drops of red soap dye and 30 drops of yellow soap dyes. Once again, use your hands to mix the ingredients together.
Step 5: Once everything is mixed, you will need a small bowl. To this bowl, add about 28 grams of the mixture. Set this aside, for now. We will come back to it in a later step.
Step 6: With the remaining dough, use your hands to form 7 balls of dough. Pack them tightly, like you are creating a snowball.
Step 7: For this step, you will need your cinnamon sticks. You will want seven pieces that are about 1 inch in length. So, cut your cinnamon sticks to this length.
Step 8: Then, place one stick gently, pushing it into the dough slightly, into each of your orange balls of dough. The piece of cinnamon stick will act as the stem of your pumpkin. You want to make sure it is centered and secure.
Step 9: At this time, you will need the dough you set aside in an earlier step. To this bowl, add 1 gram of activated charcoal. Use your hands to mix the dough, incorporating the activated charcoal completely.
Step 10: Use the black dough to create faces or words on each pumpkin. Then, use a toothpick to create lines in each pumpkin to make them look more realistic. Allow the bubble bars to harden completely before using.
Your pumpkin bubble bars are now ready to use! To use your pumpkin bubble bars crumble a bubble bar under your warm running bath water.
