These life preserve extruder discs come in 23mm and 24mm size discs.
**ADVANCED DISCS** This discs set looks deceptively easy to use, but it definitely take s a little bit of skill to make these. You will need extruder four lengths of each piece and then the eight pieces will attached together. I recommend working with lengths no longer than 8". Also, remember this design will create a "hole" in the middle that will need to be filled with soap.
If you're new to soap extruders check out this video on how to use a soap (clay) extruder with soap dough. There are two different size extruders. The Makin brand which holds the 18mm size disc and the Fimo brand which works with the 23mm size discs. There are other/knock off brands to Makin. Note: I've tried a number and most work pretty well, though they sometimes have some minor issues. If you wanted to try one of them instead of Makin they should work just as well.
For best results use a soap dough that is not overly stick or hard. You want a soft and malleable soap dough so that it easily extrudes through the soap extruder.
