Two Piece Basket Balloon - Large Extruder Discs to create embeds for use in handmade soap

These two hot air balloons are slightly different, which do you need? well, it depends on how detail-oriented you are. Both have the same balloon tops, you can make different colour strips, but the 1st ballon called '2 piece basket' has two discs to make the basket, so that you end up with a piece of sky showing between the balloon and basket. The 2nd version called 'solid basket' just has a single disc for a simple solid basket. If you opt for both ballons you will receive the '2 piece basket' ballon set plus the single disc from the solid basket balloon, so you can pick whichever takes your fancy at the time.


The embeds from these discs will be about 4cm high


This extruder disc is for the large extruder gun which you can find here.


This disc will fit other large extruders, please just check the size if you have a different extruder. The diameter of the disc is 57mm.


The discs are only suitable for use with soap dough, not suitable for melt and pour soap.


There is a special postage rate available when buying scrapers and/or extruder discs only, as they can be sent 'large letter' size. Please select this option at the checkout. This postage option cannot be used if your order contains anything other than scrapers and extruder discs.


The discs are made from PLA, which is a plant-based material, and therefore environmentally friendly


These extruder discs will last you for many uses and help you create many beautiful soaps as long as you take care of them.

After use, wipe with a cloth to remove excess soap batter. I always find the discs easier to clean if you wipe and wash them soon after using them.
Wash with warm soapy water, rinse and dry.

Your scrapers are made from PLA which is a temperature-sensitive thermoplastic polymer derived from renewable resources such as corn starch or sugar cane. PLA will start to deform and melt at around 60°C (140°F), please ensure your washing water is below this temperature
and never put your extruder discs in the dishwasher
