- NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron.
- Weigh 1 oz. of white soap and place in plastic beaker. Add small amount of the Matte Woodland Green soap color.
- Place in microwave and heat about 20 seconds or until soap and color have melted.
- Using a plastic dropper, pipe the colored soap into the leaf cavities for all 5 roses. Start with the middle cavity so the mold does not tip over. If the soap starts to harden, place back in microwave for a few seconds to get back to a liquid state.
- To keep soap from hardening in the dropper, place in hot water and squeeze up into dropper until ready to use again.
- Spritz soap with rubbing alcohol after piping into mold.
- Melt 4 oz. of white soap base. If striping soap petals, use the plastic droppers to fill in the edges of the petals.
- Weigh 4 oz. of clear soap and place in glass measuring cup. Heat in microwave until melted.
- Add either some shavings from the Matte Americana Red Soap Color bar or the Sexy Pink Slippers Mica Powder. Mix until color is incorporated.
- Mix colored soap with remaining melted white soap. When using Red Pigment, mixing the white and clear soap will brighten up the red matte color.
- Add 7 ml. or 1/2 Tablespoon of the Wild Rose Fragrance Oil. Blend into melted soap base.
- Before pouring soap, check that soap temperature is at or below 125°. If soap is too hot, it will bleed into the white petal tips or the green leaves.
- Spritz generously with rubbing alcohol before pouring soap. This ensures that the soap previously poured will stick to the red or pink soap once it has set up.
- For ease of unmolding, once soap has set for about 10 minutes, place in refrigerator for about 30 minutes. This will make it easier to unmold the soap.
- After removing from refrigerator, let set on counter for a few minutes to warm up. Turn mold over and gently press on the bottom of each cavity to release the soap.
- When all 5 roses have been unmolded, if desired, sprinkle a little bit of Iridescent Sparkle Glitter over the top of each rose.
- Carefully wrap each soap in clear plastic wrap and place in a white organza bag.
- If making soap from kit, recipe will need to be repeated 4 times to make 20 bars of soap.
