Love ‘em or hate ‘em, there is no question that Lush’s Jelly Bombs have left an impression. I being ever up for a good experiment decided to take on a project to imitate and make my own variation. The goal to create a jelly bath bomb as good if not better than those that inspired it. In creating my preferred variation, I experimented with a number of different ideas (and even came up with a few more for future projects). As I get time over the coming days to pull together the videos and upload, I will be sharing those experiments – the good, the bad, and the oh so ugly. All so you can learn from failures and successes. The end result, a jelly bomb that I personally think is the perfect mixture of fizz, jelly, and even a little bubbly.
The jelly bombs themselves are cheap and easy to make with ingredients that you can quickly get through amazon or even local grocery or health food stores. In truth, as a whole these jelly bombs unmolded better than any other bath bombs I have ever made – I typically didn’t have any that failed to hold their shape or tried to crumble on me.
For most, I am making the mini-bombs as a proof of concept test model. I did this primarily so that I did not have to waste as much water to get a sound test. In the later videos you will see me scale them up and add a few embeds to the full size versions.
